adam sandler was born September 9th, 1966 in Brooklyn, New
York. Nevertheless adam sandler was raised in New Hampshire.
His first comic appearance occurred when his brother pushed
on stage at a comedy club. Adam got his big break with "Saturday
Night Live." He was discovered at a standup bit by Dennis
Miller, who got him an audition for "SNL." Sandler
was best known for his hilarious songs on the skit "Weekend
Update." Some of his characters were Cajun Man, Canteen
Boy, Opera Man & Shorty. adam sandler also wrote for the
show. Before 1995 Sandler had parts in "Mixed Nuts,"
"Airheads," "Going Overboard," and "Shakes
The Clown." adam sandler stayed at SNL for about
four years. and then exited. He did a movie in 1995 called
"Billy Madison." In that movie adam sandler played
a drunken loser who had to prove his father he was responsible,
so he could take over his hotel company. That is one of my
favorite adam sandler movies. adam sandler now co-writes all
his movies with his college buddy Tim Herlihy, who is now
a head writer for "SNL."
1996 brought "Happy Gilmore." In "Happy Gilmore,"
adam sandler played a golfer who had to win tournaments to
save his grandma's house. Another movie, "Bullet Proof,"
adam adam sandler plays next to Damon Wayans. adam sandler's
next role showed a new side. "The Wedding Singer"
casted Adam as Robby Hart, a wedding singer who meets a soon
to be married Drew Barrymore, and falls in love with her.
Now we come to last year's smash hit "The Waterboy."
I have no need to explain that role. Anyone who's a adam sandler
fan already knows what it's about. With the success of The
Waterboy, Adam had enough movie offers to bury him. In June
1999 adam sandler starred in "Big Daddy." It grossed
over $160 million dollars. Even though some critics give adam
sandler's movies bad reviews, the fans still come out to see
his movies. He's funny, a cult hero if you might say. adam
sandler's next role is "Little Nicky." He also produced
"Deuce Bigalow Male Gigolo," using his new production
company Happy Madison Studios. Happy Madison, is already working
on several new projects. Deuce opened December 10th, 1999
and grossed over $60 million dollars. adam sandler has also
released 4 comedy albums. His 4th album, "Stan &
Judy's Kid" was released in September 1999 and was nominated
for a Grammy award.
adam sandler was born in Brooklyn, New York on September 9th,
1966 but was raised in Manchester, New Hampshire. His aptitude
for comedy was apparent in his childhood. He was the class
clown and loved every minute of it. When adam sandler was
seventeen, he got his first taste of stand up at a nightclub
that he was frequenting. With some coaxing from his brother,
Adam spontaneously took the stage at the Boston comedy club
and found that his talent for making people laugh could be
more than just something to do, it could be a career. While
attending New York University, where he graduated with a Bachelor
of Fine Arts Degree in 1991, adam sandler nurtured his comedic
talent by appearing at comedy clubs and universities. adam
sandler landed a recurring role on The Cosby Show
as Theo Huxtables friend Smitty. While working the comedy
circuit in L.A. he was discovered by Saturday Night
Live veteran Dennis Miller. Miller recommended Sandler
to S.N.L. producer Lorne Michael. With the recommendation
and Adams obvious talent, Sandler secured a desired
spot on the show in 1990. Although initially he was hired
as a writer and an occasional performer, he soon became a
regular cast member.
His popularity on S.N.L. was enormous and he remained with
the show for five years. While still working on S.N.L. he
released his first comedy album entitled theyre
all gonna laugh at you! in 1993. The debut album won
him a Grammy nomination and was secured on Billboards
charts for well over 100 weeks. adam sandlers early
dabbling on the big screen also marked this period. He appeared
in such films as Coneheads, Mixed Nuts
and Airheads. It wasnt until Billy
Madison that adam sandler landed a starring role. The
show was a hit and so was its co-writer and star, adam sandler.
With the release of the golfing comedy smash-hit Happy
Gilmore, adam sandlers popularity soared and so
did his asking price per film. He soon landed his next project
Bulletproof, an action/comedy co-staring Damon
His next blockbuster was the hilarious The Wedding
Singer with the lovely and talented Drew Barrymore.
With his next mega hit "The Water Boy" adam sandler
had secured his place as one of Hollywood's most sought after
comedians. The film grossed over $39 million its opening
weekend. adam sandler's latest release is "Big Daddy".
Sandler plays a Slacker/law school graduate who can't seem
to get himself motivated until his girlfriend dumps him due
to his irresponsibility. He then adopts a child to prove himself
to his girlfriend, but suddenly finds himself actually liking
the kid. He is now in the $20 million dollar club of Hollywood.
That's how much you'd have to pay to get Sandler to sign a
contract for his services. Not bad for a kid from Manchester
who spontaneously jumped on a stage with a little coaxing
from his brother.
