Adam Sandler – Celebrity Profile

Hardly a critical darling, Adam Sandler has built a career on appealing to audiences looking to laugh first and think later. Sandler has gone from totally silly to more challenging roles as he’s gotten older, and the Judd Apatow directed Funny People (which premieres this week), co-starring Seth Rogen seems to be a nice combination of funny with dramatic elements. Adam Sandler paid his dues with stand up and low rent gigs like appearances on MTV’s Remote Control. Loyal to his friends and fans, Adam Sandler has gone from SNL funny man, to creating a successful stand up act and comedy albums, to high grossing movie star and successful producer with Happy Madison Productions. He can do stupid funny like in Little Nicky and The Waterboy, but has also drifted into complex material with Spanglish, Punch-Drunk Love and Reign Over Me.

Bio – Born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Judy, a nursery school teacher, and Stanley Sandler, an electrical engineer. He is Jewish. When he was five, his family moved to Manchester, New Hampshire, where he attended Manchester Central High School.

Family Married actress Jacqueline Samantha Titone in 2003, has 2 daughters.
