“Chemistry can be a good and bad thing. Chemistry is good when you make love with it. Chemistry is bad when you make crack with it.” — Adam Sandler, Emmy & Grammy-nominated Comedian and Actor
Happy Birthday to Adam Sandler, the Emmy and Grammy-nominated actor and comedian is turning 53 years old today. Sandler rose to prominence as a cast member of “Saturday Night Live”, creating timeless characters like Opera Man and Canteen Boy before eventually making the transition to big-screen star with 1995’s frat boy comedy hit “Billy Madison”. In the decades since, Sandler has been one of Hollywood’s most in-demand performers, headlining numerous blockbuster comedies and even occasionally dipping into dramatic acting — in total, Sandler’s films have grossed more than $2 billion at the box office. Since 2016, Sandler has produced his films through an exclusive deal with Netflix, a lucrative move that allowed the funnyman more creative freedom and led to his first comedy special in 2018 titled “100% Fresh”.
