Early life

Sandler was born in Brooklyn, New York, on September 9, 1966, to Judith “Judy”Levine, a nursery school teacher, and Stanley Sandler, an electrical engineer. His family is Jewish and descends from Russian-Jewish immigrants on both sides. Sandler grew up in Manchester, New Hampshire, after moving there at the age of six. He attended Manchester Central High School. As a teen, Sandler was in BBYO, a Jewish youth group. Sandler graduated from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in 1988.

Career

Early in his career, in 1987, Sandler played Theo Huxtable’s friend, Smitty, in The Cosby Show and the Stud Boy or Trivia Delinquent in the MTV game show Remote Control. After his film debut Going Overboard in 1989, Sandler performed in comedy clubs, having first taken the stage at his brother’s urging when he was 17. He was discovered by comedian Dennis Miller, who caught Sandler’s act in Los Angeles and recommended him to Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels.

Although his earliest films did not receive favorable critical attention, he started to receive more positive reviews, beginning with Punch-Drunk Love in 2002. Roger Ebert’s review of Punch-Drunk Love concluded that Sandler had been wasted in earlier films with poorly written scripts and characters with no development.

Sandler has been referenced multiple times in various media, including in the TV shows The Simpsons in the episode “Monty Can’t Buy Me Love”, in Family Guy in the episode “Stew-Roids”, and in South Park in the episode “You’re Getting Old”. He was also referenced in the video game Half-Life: Opposing Force. The HBO series Animals episode “The Trial” features a mock court case to decide whether Sandler or Jim Carrey is a better comedian.
