Description

Debuted and currently #4 on the New York Times audio bestseller list!

Fifty-something David Spade is letting it all hang out. Older (yes), wiser (debatable), in A Polaroid Guy in a Snapchat World, the actor, comedian, and SNL alum reflects on his life then and now through a series of candid and hysterical (and occasionally cringe-worthy) takes on everything from why it’s getting harder to date younger women, to what it’s like being a dad now, to suddenly being the “old guy” on set. 

Whether he’s musing on the alarming ease of breaking up over text (he’s done it), feuding with a teenage Internet celebrity (spoiler alert, he lost), or dealing with the friend from high school who became his full-time plus-one, when the star of Joe Dirt and Just Shoot Me unleashes his biting wit and dirty mind on the general freakiness of middle-age, he’s in a league of his own (not to be confused with A League of Their Own). 

Written and performed for the Audible experience, Spade’s new comic memoir takes listeners along for the sometimes embarrassing and always hilarious ride of getting older in our fleeting “Snapchat World”.

laugh outloud

It was laugh outloud funny in so many places and it's great to hear how much he loves what he does. Love how relatable it was.

Spade is still the best

Binged this audiobook in two days! Literally did not want to turn it off! David is just as hilarious as ever and is such a great story teller. Absolutely love this and will probably listen again in a few weeks haha!

solid 5/5

1) Dont listen to this with young kids. They'll laugh in all the appropriate places, and it gets super awkward when your 6 year old laughs at Spade in a physical appointment.

2) Just turn it off when going through drive-thru. The nice young lady taking your order won't understand the context of what you're listening to, and everyone at McDonalds will think you're a weirdo.

Other than that, enjoy. It's pretty darn tootin' funny.

Well worth buying/using a credit!

I've been a David Spade fan since his 'SNL' days. This audiobook is hilarious! I enjoyed every second of this! It was laugh out loud funny.

was hoping for so much more

Love Spade. movies are great tv shows are great first book was amazing. this book.....well....it honestly sounded like a 12 year old trying to be funny wrote it....the sound effects and "side comments" were not funny....they were annoying...the parts of the book i liked i really liked. the insights the behind the scenes stories opinions etc were good. but 1/2 this book was written to fill space . not as good as the first one. loved hearing about dating stuff and whats it like to be famous etc. wish there was more of that .

More Please

I’m glad to hear I wasn’t the only one who found Spades first audiobook great to listen too. His humour and storytelling ability can be somewhat lost in written form

Terri idea that he made an audiobook only audiobook.

I’ll be getting the next one too!!!

Listened to this one way too quickly. Very enjoyable.

Entertaining, interesting, highly recommend.

Uniquely funny interesting narration, very easy to listen to. Great personal insightful stories mixed in with SNL experiences. I actually laughed outloud a few times. I wasn't a specific fan, but I am now. Looking forward to his next book.

Much better than the first one!

This book is such a good listen for when you’re running errands, driving your car to work, or simple things like that.
As David mentioned, it doesn’t add anything to your life, but it’s entertaining and light to listen to.
I find myself looking forward to head to the car for work just so I can listen to it.

Hilarious...

I was laughing so much I think my coworkers in the near by cubicles thought I was crazy. I loved that David Spade narrated the story. You can get his sense of humor. The book was about random life topics sometimes comparing the old way of life versus the new technological era. Super funny!

Cynical humor at its best!

If you are a Spade fan, or even if you’re not, this book is a witty take on life as it was and is now. As a 40 something woman, I appreciated the nostalgic SNL and Farley references, as well as the more poignant moments of Spade’s upbringing and early years. His sarcasm and cynicism are the perfect pair as he describes the many hilarious moments of his life as a “star”. While a bit raunchy at times, this book is worth the price and the listen. It’s laugh out loud funny in a world where we don’t laugh nearly enough. Thanks David Spade!!

Free on Spotify

I love Spade. Saw him with Dennis Miller a few months ago. But this "book" is virtually his entire 2014 album, which is available on Spotify. Don't waste a credit.

Laugh out loud hilarious

A great performance of a story that is both funny and touching by a guy who far more decent and thoughtful than his public persona.

Spade Succeeds in Spades

Lots of great comics out there- add a voracious online appetite that will swallow 10 years of material in a 45 min. spot, and you have near impossible odds of establishing a long term relationship with a loyal audience. Some have done it, always with a unique personality- able to overcome tarnishing time with its constantly new and shifting difficulty levels....
Lenny Bruce, Jerry Lewis, Carlin, Pryor, Dangerfield-modern comics at least have the shoulders of Giants to start off on-
Bill Hicks, Kennison, Hedberg, Louis CK, Chappell, Chris Rock....again, even given the amazing content, it’s the unique personalities that make for a lifetime friend-
And there you have the story and glory of Davie Spade- Trusting in his own personality to be his ‘character’, it’s clear that this shy and tentative person is never taking any chances by self deprecation, or self shaming; he’s got the room at Hello-
David is Everyman’s go-to hang partner. Like Gaffigan , Tom Papa, and (on a good day) Artie Lang, he can go for a couple hours and never approach a worn out welcome- He’s a welcome guest and a truly trusted comic- he’ll be around as long as he wants to be.

In my 20s, but still love it...

A lot of this book is geared at relating more towards those who aren't growing up in this "social media world". However, I'm in my twenties, and I grew up loving David Spade's comedy, so I wanted to give it a try anyway. I am so glad I did. There was a lot that was still very relatable. He's an amazing story teller in this. 6 hours flew by like it was nothing. I don't laugh out loud at much, but I really did at this, making myself look like a complete idiot many times. I would listen to him ramble like he did in this book for hours more! There are definitely some raunchy parts, but still hilarious. Such a well thought through look at his life.

Still don't know what an Instagram model is

I loved David Spade on SNL and his work with Chris Farley, May Peace Be Upon Him. I had no idea of David's womanizer reputation or what an Instagram model was before listening to his book. Still haven't quite figured out what an Instagram model is but I will get to it. I commiserate with David on not being able to understand young twenties kids or their digital communications; however, I do not commiserate with David on his desire to date these children. Yes, I consider girls in their early twenties to be children. What will David do when a guy in his 50s rolls up to his house to date his daughter when she is 23? If his stomach doesn't turn, well then God Bless at least he's not a hypocrite. Still love his self deprecating humour. He's a doll...but David, I checked out Netflix after listening to your book. Not sure that the scads of comedy production on there is more laudable than the labors of an IG model. I am writing this review in exchange for a $5 coupon. Full disclosure.

Feels like you are hanging out with David spade for 6 hours

This is an excellent audiobook even if you only like David spade a little bit. It moves along quite nicely and you will for sure have some good laughs. If you are looking for something light and fun this is an excellent choice.
