Diamond was born on January 7, 1977, in San Jose, California. Diamond's most memorable role was that of the nerdy Samuel "Screech" Powers on the television show Saved by the Bell, a role he played for close to thirteen years from its beginning as Good Morning, Miss Bliss (1988–89) through its final incarnation, Saved by the Bell: The New Class (1994–2000).

The College Years was canceled after one season. Diamond returned to Bayside High as Principal Belding's assistant in The New Class episodes, remaining with the show until its cancellation. In 2006, Diamond directed and released his own sex tape Screeched - Saved by the smell. Diamond began doing stand up
