David Spade: Nothing Personal may be one of the worst stand-up comedy specials I have ever seen.

Netflix comedy special David Spade: Nothing Personal will be released on the streaming service on April 26.

I’ve mentioned how much I love stand-up comedy specials in the past. So on the menu today is David Spade and his brand new special Nothing Personal.

Jab me, let’s go eat.

If you are (like me) tired of hearing about the pandemic in entertainment forms, buckle up because Spade opens up his special with some jokes regarding the entire thing. But, of course, I fully expect comedians to beat the pandemic jokes to the point of no return. I am sure they will stop when they film new specials and the jokes surrounding the Will Smith/Chris Rock slap. Sure, some of Spade’s jokes hit, but most don’t, but that’s expected with this material.

Spade moves on to other topics in the special. From talking about buying a coat to head to the show to the time physical for Grown Ups to attempting a few Adam Sandler jokes. The worst comes as his poor attempt at a joke about potential dick pictures on his phone that included the line, “I’m going to put real bullets in the gun to surprise everyone.” It was an awful joke that didn’t amuse the audience either.

Adam’s not going to like this.

Look, I am not going to say that David Spade was never funny, but his jokes feel so dated that I found myself audibly sighing several times throughout this special. Of course, I don’t expect to laugh at every joke during a special, and only a few comedians can do this, which is more than okay. However, Spade missed on 95% of his jokes and even the audiences were a bit underwhelmed in the background.

Overall, Spade’s time in this space should be over. The special was a waste of time and I truly hope you read this and skip it.

    I’ve seen Spade in Vegas abs he was great. This special, though, was mostly awful. A few good quips and jokes. But mostly a waste of time. Disappointing.

    Besides how bad the timing of his “jokes” were I had a hard time looking at him with dirty hair, rumpled, and unflattering jeans and shirt. Everything was so dated and tired. What happened to that funny, snappy guy? I kept thinking of the SNL skit where he greets people at an agents office with a big …”And you are?”

    I wish I would’ve read this before I spent a good 45 minutes on this. It felt…off. His jokes were so close to being funny. But he just really was off target most of the time. Disappointed. It felt like he was forced into this.
