Adam Sandler

Born: September 9, 1966, Brooklyn, New York City, New York - USA

Adam Richard Sandler is an American actor, comedian, screenwriter, film producer, and musician.

After becoming a “Saturday Night Live” cast member, Sandler went on to star in many Hollywood feature films that combined have grossed over $2 billion at the box office.

He is best known for his comedic roles, such as in the films “Billy Madison” (1995), the sports comedies “Happy Gilmore” (1996) and “The Waterboy” (1998), the romantic comedy “The Wedding Singer” (1998), “Big Daddy” (1999), and “Mr. Deeds” (2002), and voicing Dracula in “Hotel Transylvania” (2012) and “Hotel Transylvania 2” (2015).

Several of his movies, most notably the widely panned “Jack and Jill”, have gained harsh criticism, culminating in a shared second place in the number of Raspberry Awards (3) and Raspberry Award nominations (11), in both cases second only to Sylvester Stallone.

He has ventured into more dramatic territory with his roles in “Punch-Drunk Love” (2002), “Spanglish” (2004), “Reign Over Me” (2007), “Funny People” (2009) and “The Meyerowitz Stories” (2017).

Sandler has released five comedy albums in his career: “They're All Gonna Laugh at You!” (1993) and “What the Hell Happened to Me?” (1996) are both certified double-platinum.

In 1999, Sandler founded Happy Madison Productions.
