Co­me­dian thinks he’s in­vis­i­ble

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

CO­ME­DIAN David Spade has avoided com­ing to Aus­tralia in the past be­cause he was afraid no­body knew who he was.

The star of long-run­ning sit­coms Just Shoot Me and Rules Of En­gage­ment — and more Adam San­dler movies than any­one should re­ally ap­pear in — was keen to know if he was a fa­mil­iar face Down Un­der.

“If I go all the way there, are they go­ing to think that I’m fa­mous? Is it worth a trip? Will they know who I am?” he asked Con­fi­den­tial. “I just don’t know if they know me or not, be­cause I never leave the coun­try.”

Once the fun­ny­man was as­sured the 14-hour flight from his Los An­ge­les home would be worth it, he de­cided he might just head over and do some shows.

“Good, be­cause I’m not fly­ing all the way for noth­ing,” he said. “Well, I might buzz out and do some stand-up out there then.”

Spade voices in­vis­i­ble man Grif­fin in Ho­tel Tran­syl­va­nia 3: Sum­mer Va­ca­tion, which opens in cine­mas on June 28.
