BEDTIME STORIES

ADAM SANDLER (Skeeter Bronson/Producer) has enjoyed phenomenal success in the entertainment industry as an actor, writer, producer and musician.

Sandler was last seen in a starring role opposite John Turturro, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Rob Schneider in Sony's comedy "You Don't Mess with the Zohan.” Previously, he was seen starring opposite Kevin James and Jessica Biel in the comedy "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry,” which opened #1, and "Reign Over Me,” co-starring Don Cheadle for director Mike Binder. His other box-office hits include "Click,” starring with Kate Beckinsale and "The Longest Yard,” starring with Chris Rock and Burt Reynolds. He also starred in James L. Brooks' "Spanglish,” opposite Tea Leoni, and Paul Thomas Anderson's "Punch-Drunk Love,” for which he received a Golden Globe Award® nomination.

Sandler's first brush with comedy came at age 17, with a performance at a Boston comedy club. From then on he was hooked, performing regularly in comedy clubs, while earning a degree in Fine Arts from New York University.

Sandler made his motion picture debut in "Coneheads,” opposite Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin. He has gone on to become an almost self-contained mini studio involved in all aspects of film production. "Happy Gilmore” was one of the most successful movies of 1996. With a budget of just $12 million, it grossed more than $40 million at the box office and $35 million on home video. "The Wedding Singer,” in which he also starred with Drew Barrymore, was the first box office hit of 1998, with an opening weekend gross of more than $22 million. His next film, "The Waterboy,” had an opening weekend of almost $40 million. Other recent $100 million-plus-grossing Sandler films include "Big Daddy,” "Mr. Deeds,” "Anger Management” and "50 First Dates.”

Sandler collaborated with writer Tim Herlihy on the screenplays for "Happy Gilmore,” "Little Nicky,” "Billy Madison,” "Big Daddy” and "The Waterboy.” "Billy Madison” has become a cult classic for college students across the country, with "Billy” nights and "Sandler” festivals.

Sandler served as producer through his Happy Madison Productions on "Click,” "The Benchwarmers,” "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo” and "Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star” and "Strange Wilderness.” He executive produced "Grandma's Boy,” "The Animal,” "Joe Dirt,” "The Master of Disguise,” "The Hot Chick” and "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo.” Sandler's production company, Happy Madison Productions, has a deal with Sony Pictures Television to develop shows for the studio, including the CBS hit comedy series "Rules of Engagement” starring David Spade and Oliver Hudson.

During breaks from his busy filming schedule, Sandler spends time in the recording studio. Several of his comedy albums on Warner Bros. Records have gone multi-platinum. Collectively, they have sold more than six million copies to date. Several years ago, Sandler launched AdamSandler.com. This site is updated weekly with mini-movies featuring Sandler and the staff of Happy Madison in their daily routines.
