Adam Sandler needs no introduction. Over the past thirty years he has enjoyed phenomenal success as a comedian, actor, writer, producer and musician.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Manchester, New Hampshire, Sandler’s first brush with comedy came at age 17, with a performance at a Boston comedy club. From then on he was hooked, performing regularly in comedy clubs throughout the state, while earning a degree in Fine Arts from New York University. While performing stand up, he was spotted by Dennis Miller and recruited to join the Saturday Night Live team where he was a regular for five seasons. He also appeared on MTV’s Remote Control, The Cosby Show, and various other television shows and films including AIRHEADS, CONEHEADS and MIXED NUTS.
Sandler has been on the road performing in front of live audiences in a sold-out tour over the last couple of years in the U.S. and Canada. “100% Fresh” was released on Netflix last year and marked Sandler’s first comedy special in twenty years. In conjunction with Netflix, Warner Bros. Records released the audio companion to Sandler’s critically acclaimed Netflix special, “100% Fresh: A Netflix Original Comedy Special.” The album debuted at number two on the Billboard Top Comedy Albums following its first full week on the market.
As one of the world’s most iconic comedians, Sandler has accumulated a plethora of accolades including eight People’s Choice Awards, five MTV Movie Awards, six Kids Choice Awards, two Grammy nominations for Comedy Album of the Year, a Golden Globe nomination forPUNCH-DRUNK LOVE, a 2018 Critics Choice nomination forTHE MEYEROWITZ STORIES, CinemaCon’s 2014 Male Star of the Year, the 2018 Webby Award for Overall Achievement for his Netflix films, and most recently, this year’s Emmy nominations for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series (Saturday Night Live) and Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special (“100% Fresh”).
