Adam Sandler

  • Born September 9, 1966, in Brooklyn, Adam Sandler was raised in Manchester, New Hampshire.
  • At the age of 17, his brother dared him to take the stage at a Boston comedy club's amateur night and was surprised at how well Adam performed.
  • That planted the seed for his career, though he first attended NYU, receiving a Fine Arts degree in 1989.
  • Not long after graduation, Sandler gained a position with the NBC-TV sketch-comedy show Saturday Night Live, and became one of the show's most popular actors during his five-year stint.
  • In 1993, Warner Brothers signed Sandler to a recording contract, and he delivered his debut album They're All Gonna Laugh at You that September. The LP became popular with college radio and sold well, earning a gold certification and a Grammy nomination.
  • Sandler broke out in the cinema the following year, appearing in Mixed Nuts and Coneheads before his first starring vehicle, 1995's Bill Madison.
  • His second comedy album, What the Hell Happened to Me?, was released in early 1996; it leapt into the Top 20 and eventually went platinum.
  • By now one of the biggest comic stars in America, Sandler reeled off a string of blockbuster films including Billy Madison, The Wedding Singer, The Waterboy and Big Daddy before releasing his third album, Stan and Judy's Kid, in 1999.
  • The 2000s found Sandler trying his hand at less comedic rolls (Punch Drunk Love), animation (8 Crazy Nights), but the box-office results were mixed.
  • In 2004 he released his fifth album, Shhh...Don't Tell
