Adam Sandler was born on September 9, 1966, in Brooklyn, New York, to Judy and Stanley Sandler. At 17, he took his first step towards becoming a stand-up comedian when he spontaneously took the stage at a Boston comedy club. He found he was a natural comic. He nurtured his talent while at New York University (graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1991) by performing regularly in clubs and at universities. During his freshman year, he snagged a recurring role as the Huxtable family's friend Smitty on "The Cosby Show" (1984). While working at a comedy club in L.A., he was "discovered" by Dennis Miller, who recommended him to "Saturday Night Live" (1975) producer Lorne Michaels and told him that Sandler had a big talent. This led to his being cast in the show in 1990, which he also wrote for in addition to performing. After "Saturday Night Live" (1975), Sandler went on to the movies, starring in such hit comedies as Airheads (1994), Happy Gilmore (1996), Billy Madison (1995) and Big Daddy (1999/I). He has also starred in Mr. Deeds (2002) alongside Winona Ryder; Eight Crazy Nights (2002), an animated movie about the Jewish festival of Chanukah; and Punch-Drunk Love (2002). He also writes and produces many of his own films and has composed songs for several of them, including The Wedding Singer (1998). Sandler has had several of his songs placed on the "Billboard" charts, including the classic "The Chanukah Song".

Adam Sandler, 1966 in New York geboren, ist ein US-amerikanischer Schauspieler, Drehbuchautor und Produzent. Nach einigen erfolgreichen Jahren als Mitglied der Saturday-Night-Life–Crew hatte Sandler 1995 mit Billy Madison – Ein Chaot zum Verlieben seinen Durchbruch als Filmschauspieler. Mit Happy Gilmore, Eine Hochzeit zum Verlieben und Waterboy – Der Typ mit dem Wasserschaden konnte sich Adam Sandler Ende der 90er Jahre in Hollywood etablieren. Seine Komödien werden fast ausnahmslos zu großen Erfolgen, können bei der Kritik jedoch nicht punkten. Der US-Amerikaner versucht sich im neuen Jahrtausend in anspruchsvolleren Filmen wie Punch-Drunk Love oder Die Liebe in mir, die von der Kritik durchaus positiv aufgenommen werden. 1999 gründet Adam Sandler die Produktionsfirma Happy Madison Productions, die für viele seiner eigenen Filmhits zuständig ist. Zu seinen bekanntesten Filmen im neuen Jahrtausend zählen unter anderem Spiel ohne Regeln, Klick und Kindsköpfe. Adam Sandler arbeitet häufig mit engen Freunden wie Kevin James, Rob Schneider und David Spade zusammen.
