Comedian thinks he’s invisible
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.
