On the small screen, Spade was recently seen on the seventh and final season of the CBS comedy "Rules of Engagement." The show was produced by Sony's Happy Madison Productions and centered around three men who were in different stages of their relationships: married, engaged and single. The half-hour situational comedy stared Spade as the content bachelor and serial dater. The show enjoyed excellent ratings throughout all seven seasons.

Spade was also in "The Showbiz Show" on Comedy Central from 2005-2007. Spade created, executive produced, hosted and wrote the show along with pal Hugh Fink (another former "SNL" writer). The critically acclaimed half-hour comedy spoof on Hollywood -- a la Spade's famed "Saturday Night Live" sketch "Hollywood Minute" -- featured Spade's biting humor and quick wit. During this show's run, he once again became a favorite among fans and industry peers.

Spade starred in Columbia TriStar's 2001's comedy "Joe Dirt," which he also co-wrote. In this Happy Madison production, Spade portrays Joe, a man searching for his parents who abandoned him as a baby at the Grand Canyon. The film enjoyed enormous success at the box office and continues to be a top-selling DVD.

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. One of Spade's most memorable characters on "SNL" (where he served as both a writer and a performer) is the sarcastic "Hollywood Minute" reporter on "Weekend Update." He also started the catchphrases "And you are...?" and "Buh-bye."
