In addition to these, David has also acted and directed several plays, including “Spamalot”, “Curtains” and “Vanya And Sonia And Masha And Spike”. Recently, he directed the play “It Shoulda Been You” in 2015, so this aspect of his career has also been profitable.

During his career, David has been rewarded with several nominations for and award wins including four Primetime Emmy Awards for his role in “Frasier”, and one Tony Award for his role in the play “Curtains”.

1 [Speaking on "The View" on May 28, 2009, about his activism for same-sex marriage] I've been going [to marriage-equality rallies] because I had the experience of...having this private thing [marriage] suddenly dragged out into the public and having people I don't know take a vote--I mean, can you imagine? If you're married, the people in your state getting together and saying, "well, you know what, you're not." It's a very odd thing. And I understand all the religious and emotional issues that are involved, but I don't...it was a very angry-making feeling, both in November when it was taken away from me and this past Tuesday, sitting in front of my television wondering, "gee, I hope the Supreme Court thinks it's okay for us to be married." Excuse me--it's none of your business.
2 My life is an open book, but don't expect me to read it to you.
3 I can vividly recall telling a joke in, like, second grade and realizing it was funnier if I didn't laugh. I've been deadpan ever since.
