GROWN UPS

DAVID SPADE (Marcus Higgins) was nominated for a 1999 Emmy Award for his memorable role as Dennis Finch, the wise-cracking, power-hungry assistant on "Just Shoot Me,” and became a household favorite during his five-year stint as a cast member of NBC's "Saturday Night Live.” The comedian was also nominated for a Golden Globe in 2000, and an American Comedy Award in 1999, for his work on "Just Shoot Me.” Spade's television and film career continues to grow. Spade currently stars in CBS's comedy "Rules of Engagement,” produced by Sony's Happy Madison Productions, which will premiere its fourth season this September on CBS. 

It was recently announced that Spade is currently developing "Joe Dirt,” an animated series for TBS featuring the character Spade created in the 2001 film of the same name.

Spade also created, executive produced, hosted, and wrote, along with pal and fellow ‘SNL' writer Hugh Fink, "The Showbiz Show” for Comedy Central. The critically acclaimed half hour comedy spoof on Hollywood, a la Spade's famed "Saturday Night Live” sketch "Hollywood Minute,” featured Spade's biting comedy and quick wit and he once again became a favorite among fans and industry peers.

Spade also starred in Sony's box office hit The Benchwarmers. The film which also stars Jon Heder and Rob Schneider, opened at #1 in April 2006, making over $20 million in the its first weekend.

Spade also lent his familiar voice and flair for comedy to the movie Racing Stripes for Warner Bros. Racing Stripes premiered #1 at the box office opening weekend. 

In 2003, Spade was seen starring in Paramount's Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, which he co-wrote with Fred Wolf for Happy Madison Productions. That film also opened #1 at the box office. He also starred in The Adventures of Joe Dirt and was the lead voice of Disney's animated hit The Emperor's New Groove. 

Spade co-starred with "SNL” alumnus Chris Farley in the films Tommy Boy and Black Sheep, and the pair won a 1996 MTV Movie Award for ‘Best On-Screen Duo' for the former. His other feature credits include Reality Bites, Light Sleeper, and Coneheads. In 1999, Spade starred the romantic comedy Lost & Found, for which he also co-wrote the screenplay. 

Born in Birmingham, Michigan, and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona, Spade began his career by performing stand-up comedy in clubs, theaters and colleges across the country. He made his television debut on "SNL” and was soon named the Hot Stand-Up Comedian of the Year by Rolling Stone magazine. Some of Spade's memorable characters on ‘SNL,” where he served as both a writer and a performer, included the sarcastic "Hollywood Minute” reporter on "Weekend Update” and he also started the catch phrases "And you are…?” and "Buh-Bye!.”
