    Nominated in 1999 for an Emmy Award for his memorable role as Dennis Finch the wise-cracking power-hungry assistant on “Just Shoot Me ” David Spade became a household favorite during his five-year stint as a cast member of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”  The comedian was also nominated for a Golden Globe in 2000 an American Comedy Award in 1999 for his work on “Just Shoot Me”. Spade’s television and film career continues to grow.
     
    Most recently Spade was seen starring in Sony Pictures’ GROWN UP’S 2 alongside Adam Sandler Chris Rock and Kevin James. The film is a follow up to the 2010 hit comedy about a group of childhood friends who reunite years later. The film was released on July 12 2013 and grossed $42 million opening weekend.
     
    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 in different stages of their relationships: married engaged and single. The half hour situational comedy stared Spade as the content bachelor and serial dater as the comedy follows this unique friendship. The show enjoyed excellent ratings throughout all seven seasons.
     
    Last year Spade was heard as the voice of the ‘Griffin invisible man’ in the animated feature HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA alongside Adam Sandler Selena Gomez Steve Buscemi Kevin James and Andy Samberg to name a few.
     
    In 2010 Spade was seen on the big screen in the Happy Madison/ Sony comedy GROWN UPS alongside Adam Sandler Kevin James Salma Hayek Chris Rock and Steve Buscemi. The film grossed $268 million worldwide.
     
    Spade was also seen on “The Showbiz Show” for Comedy Central from 2005-2007.  Spade created executive produced hosted and wrote the show along with pal Hugh Fink (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 comedy and quick wit and he once again became a favorite among fans and industry peers. 
     
    Spade starred Sony Pictures’ box office hit BENCHWARMERS about a trio of guys who try and make up for missed opportunities in childhood by forming a three-player baseball team to compete against standard little league squads.

    In 2001 Spade starred in Columbia Tristar’s JOE DIRT of 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.  JOE DIRT enjoyed enormous success at the box-office and continues to be a top selling DVD.

He has been touring all over with Dave Chappelle. In 2014  he killed during a record number of shows working with Dave Chappelle at Radio City Music Hall in NYC. You just saw him starring in his own show as Judge Rawlings on MTV2’s Guy Court. Donnell was also was a cast member  on MTV2’s Guy Code.

Donnell continues to tour heavily, performing his intelligently bold stand-up throughout the US, Europe, and the Caribbean.

         

    Donnell is an overnight success a decade in the making.  He made a splash in the DC comedy clubs going from a heckler in the audience to HBO's Def Comedy Jam in a period of six months. You’ve seen him as 'Ashy Larry' on Comedy Central’s award winning and critically celebrated Chappelle’s Show, where he joined Dave Chappelle as both as a writer and performer. He will also be featured in Queen Latifah's new movie Percentage. His 1-Hour Stand-Up “Ashy to Classy” premiered on Comedy Central in October of 2010.

     

    He was a co-host on both Power 105’s (NY’s #1 Hip Hop and R&B radio station) morning show “Egypt and Ashy in the Morning” and “The Big Tigger Morning Show” on WPGC in Washington DC, and he enjoyed weekly guest appearances on New York’s Hot 97 Morning Show.

    His rise to stardom may not have been “overnight”, but the journey itself has kept him edgy and relevant. Comedy's heavy hitters have noticed his talent with Neal Brennan, co- executive producer and co-head writer of Chappelle’s Show exclaiming “whenever we put Donnell in the game he’s going to hit a home run.” Jamie Foxx says, “That guy is a beast!” Wayne Brady commented that Donnell provides “amazing work on the show” and Dave Chappelle feels that “Donnell brings so much to the table...this very funny guy makes it look natural and easy.”
