Adam Sandler

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 Huxtable’s 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 Adam’s 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 “they’re all gonna laugh at you!” in 1993. The debut album won him a Grammy nomination and was secured on Billboard’s charts for well over 100 weeks. adam sandler’s early dabbling on the big screen also marked this period. He appeared in such films as “Coneheads”, “Mixed Nuts” and “Airheads”. It wasn’t 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 sandler’s popularity soared and so did his asking price per film. He soon landed his next project “Bulletproof”, an action/comedy co-staring Damon Wayons.

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 it’s 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.
