About This Quiz

Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1966, Adam Sandler began his career performing stand-up before landing small roles in The Cosby Show and the MTV game show Remote Control. After appearing the lesser-known comedy Going Overboard in 1989, Sandler got a big break when he was hired to write for SNL, on the recommendation of Dennis Miller. 

Although Sandler is best known for his movies, the comedian is also a talented musician and film producer, forming Happy Madison Productions in 1999. The first movie his newly formed production company made was Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, starring the hilarious Rob Schneider, a '90s comedy about a hapless fishtank cleaner who becomes a male prostitute to earn some money.
