Adam Sandler's parents were named Judy and Stanley; they were Jewish. When he turned 17, he took his first big step towards his becoming a stand-up comedian. When he took the stage at a Boston Comedy Club, the crowd thought he was a natural born comedian. Adam continued his learnings of becoming a comedian at New York University.

He graduated with a Fine Arts degree in 1991 and performed in front of live audiences at more clubs and universities. He then played a character in The Cosby Show named Smitty. When he was working in a comedy club in L.A, Dennis Miller discovered him and invited him to his show, called Saturday Night Live.

His debut in films was the movie Coneheads, but his first big hit was Billy Madison. Then another smashing hit came shortly after that, called Happy Gilmore. His biggest hits right now are 50 First Dates, Big Daddy, Eight Crazy Nights and The Wedding Singer. He is now in the '20 million dollar club' in L.A. My favorite of Adam Sandler`s movies is Big Daddy.
Adam Sandler, in a meeting with Lorne from Saturday Night Live, made them laugh so much they signed him right there. That`s why I like Adam Sandler, because he makes other people laugh, myself included. I also like him because whenever I'm in a bad mood and I decide to watch his movie (I own a lot of them), he makes me laugh and puts me in a good mood. I like him a lot; I wish I could meet him, he is my hero!
If he was still doing stand-up comedy shows, I would definetely want to see him. I don't really like stand-up comedy shows but I would go see him because I know for sure he would make me fall out of my seat laughing. I wish we knew each other well, and met each other once in a while. I also wish he would let me be in one of his movies with him; like be his little brother in a movie or something. That would be awesome.
