Adam Sandler is a huge major icon in America. Although he is most known for his movies, he is much more than an actor. Adam released several comical acts, and even a few songs! Adam never really knew what he was going to do with his life, until Adam’s brother suggested comedy. This biography will show that Adam Sandler gives a lot to the movie and entertainment world.
As a boy Adam lived a pretty good life. He had a small family, he lived with his brother Scott, mom Judy, father Stan, and two sisters Elizabeth and Valerie. (Bio 1) Adam’s dad was born April 5 1935 and died September 9 2003 ( IMDb 1) Adam’s family lived in a small town in New Hampshire where there was not a lot to do. As a young boy, Sandler was loved watching movies. This was one of the reasons why he got into comedy

Another big hit was in 1996 was "Happy Gilmore", which is also one of my favorite movies. Like most of Adam’s movies they were low budget but still very funny. In a lot of his movies Adam Sandler plays a man that has a quick temper and just needs to grow up. This is kind of funny because two other movies of Adam’s are called “Grown Ups” and “Grown Ups 2.” Adam Sandler has made more movies than most people think. Some of these movies are not so popular like Drunk Punch Love, Little Nicky, and Big Daddy. Other more popular movies include Hotel Transilvania and Eight Crazy Nights.
