Gifted with remarkable versatility, especially a natural flair in comedy which he presents in his own unique way to draw people's big laughs while also warm their hearts, Adam Richard Sandler surely has risen to be one of the most prominent comedic actors Hollywood ever has. A son of Jewish American couple named Stanley and Judy Sandler, the star was born on September 9, 1966 in Brooklyn, New York where he passed his early childhood quite happily before his parents took him and his three siblings along to settle in Manchester, New Hampshire by 1972. Growing up as an active teenager with interest laid on wrestling, basketball, music, and comedy in particular, the boy did not excel in academic subjects at school but was very bright in entertaining people, taking inspirations from either comedic figures like Mel Brooks, Bill Murray, and Rodney Dangerfield, or films, particularly that of Harold Ramis' “Caddyshack” (1980).

Ever the class-clown in the eyes of his classmates at Manchester Central High School, Adam, however, had not yet thought deeply about utilizing his gift of humor to pursue a career until his brother, Scott, encouraged him to make a spontaneous gig in Boston's Stitches Comedy Club. Barely 17 years old when performed there, the experience led him to a realization that he really has the potential in the field and so began to hone his comedic skills upon entering New York University after finished his high school study by 1984, writing his own materials while playing shows wherever possible, be it in local clubs or just at colleges. Added those efforts with recurring onscreen appearances in TV series “The Cosby Show" and MTV's “Remote Control” during the year 1987, all the works finally led him to a decision of setting out a journey in entertainment industry by the time he earned his BFA degree in 1991.
