Adam Sandler

Biography: Adam Richard Sandler was born September 9, 1966 in Brooklyn, New York. He is a Jewish-American actor, comedian, producer. Adam was raised in Manchester, New Hampshire. In the late 1980s, Sandler portrayed "Smitty" on The Cosby Show. He also was a performer for the MTV game show Remote Control, on which he made appearances as the characters "Trivia Delinquent" or "Stud Boy." Adam started performing in comedy clubs by taking the stage at a club in Boston. He was then discovered by comedian, Dennis Miller, who caught his act in Los Angeles. Miller immediately recommended him to Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels. Adam was hired as a writer for SNL in 1990 and became a featured player the following year, quickly making a name for himself by performing amusing original songs on the show, including The Chanukah Song. He left the popular show in 1995 to focus on his acting career. Adam's first starring movie was Billy Madison, in which he plays a grown man repeating grades 1-12 to get his reluctant father's hotel empire. He followed this movie up with other surprisingly successful comedies such as Happy Gilmore and The Wedding Singer. After The Waterboy, Adam reached box-office superstardom, where he has remained since.

Although generally despised by movie critics, audiences have remained faithful to Adam's slapstick humor to the tune of $100-million-plus grossing movies, while the Sandman has even moved outside the genre of goofball humor to take on more serious parts such as the critically acclaimed Punch-Drunk Love, and Spanglish.

A celebrity comic who keeps a low profile, he rarely gives interviews and keeps his personal life private. Adam graduated from New York University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1991. On June 22, 2003, he wed model Jackie Titone, whom he'd met on the set of Big Daddy.
