Screech Rakes In Serious Dough at Pizza Place

8/4/2009 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We were all prepared to shred Dustin Diamond when we discovered he booked a comedy show at a small town pizza joint this past weekend -- turns out Screech is the one laughing ... all the way to the bank.

Dustin Diamond
TMZ has learned the former "Saved by the Bell" dork got paid $2,000 for a 2-night stand-up gig at Listrani's -- a local pizza place-turned-comedy club in Arlington, Virginia.

Besides the paycheck, the pizza joint also forked over enough dough to cover ...


...Diamond's airfare and hotel room.

But the investment paid off, Diamond sold out both shows -- although the "theater" only fit 50 people.

As for Diamond's show -- we're told he spent a good part of his act ripping his former "SBTB" castmates and trashing his own suspender-wearing alter-ego ... could make for an awkward reunion.

Just a few more cheesy gigs and Screech should be able to pay off that $21,000 the IRS says he owes.

Too bad he's not a woman, he could have divorced and had 18 years of tax free income. Men are suckers.

If you were truly a strong, Independent Woman, you wouldn't be seeking out Child Support. So instead you are a brain dead, lazy good for nothing who wants to live off someone elses hard earned money. Hopefully if you do land a well off man and get knocked up, you will die during child birth so he gets a fat insurance pay off and the child will never be influenced by your ignorance.

Sounds like the same act they showed him doing on one of those VH1 where are they now specials from several years ago (before his stint on Celebrity Fit Club). If he can't come up with any new material by now that is pretty sad!

A pizza joint??? Why not do a comedy show at the Max's or Bayside High ??? Zack , AC Slater, and the rest of the gang including Mr. Belding would make the comedy show a hit!!!! =P
