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.

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.
