It's time to say "buh-bye" to the David Spade you think you know.
The comedian is penning a memoir due in fall 2015 from Dey Street Books.
Spade, 49, rose to fame in the '90s as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and later as the star of the sitcoms Just Shoot Me and Rules of Engagement. He's also appeared in several movies, including the recent Grown Ups 2.
The memoir, not yet titled, will cover such topics as Spade's relationship with his mostly absentee father and his days on SNL working with Adam Sandler, Chris Rock and his friend and frequent collaborator Chris Farley, who died in 1997 of a drug overdose.
In a release Spade said, "I can't wait to hit the typewriter. It is time America's sweetheart (me, not Sandra Bullock) gets to tell his tales. The Dark Side of Buh-Bye or whatever I end up calling it will be full of borderline interesting anecdotes and forgettable memories. A 'must' buy and 'maybe' read for every household. 5 stars! (Says someone a year from now.)"
