Adam Sandler was able to get an early start on his career. Beginning with a role on the hit comedy family show The Cosby Show (he played a friend of Theo Huxtable), Sandler later moved into movies and stand-up comedy. Sandler’s real big break was his role on Saturday Night Live starting in 1990. There, he started as a writer and quickly moved in front of the camera. As far as Hollywood stars go, Adam Sandler has done it all: acting, singing, stand-up comedy, screenwriting and film production. Sandler has gone on to star in and produce dozens of movies, and has produced 5 music albums. The first two albums managed to go double platinum, helping the comedian reach the net worth we see today. Sandler’s movies and comedy style have been loved at some times, hated at others, but respected enough to earn him continued work and movie deal with Netflix.
