He has two brothers, Bryan and Andy (Andy Spade is an entrepreneur who, together with his wife Kate Spade, co-founded the designer brand Kate Spade New York). Spade and his family moved to Scottsdale when David was four years old. His parents divorced shortly after, and he and his brothers were raised by their mother in Scottsdale.

Spade attended Saguaro High School and later Scottsdale Community College, before transferring to Arizona State University. He earned his bachelor’s degree in business in 1986 from ASU where he was a member of the ASU Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. While attending ASU, Spade performed standup at the local, long-running sketch comedy show, Farce Side Comedy Hour. He later made it big when he was offered the opportunity to appear on Saturday Night Live and appeared classic comedy movies such as ‘Tommy Boy’ & ‘Black Sheep’ and the TV series ‘Just Shoot Me’.

Spade has become very sensitive to light as a result of the combination of bright lights on-set and working under sunlight while filming ‘Black Sheep’. The permanent damage to his eyes and requires him to wear a hat, even indoors, and to dim the lights in the make-up trailers.
