Overview

From the comedy clubs of New York to his big break on "Saturday Night Live" to block-buster films like "Big Daddy" and "Little Nicky" Adam Sandler has left America howling in their seats and peeing in their pants. Sandler has emerged as the decade's most unstoppable comedic-and the ladies love him! But how many people know the story behind this lovable comedic prodigy's ascent to fame? Bill Crawford takes you back to Sandler's childhood in a small New Hampshire Town, where his stand-up routines were always hits with his classmates but not necessarily the teachers! When Adam left his small town to take on the big city at New York University, it wasn't always easy, Sandler performed as a street musician crooning Springsteen songs to commuters, but he was destined to succeed. From his long friendship with then college classmate Tim Herlihy, who went on to co-write all Sandler's movies, to being discovered by Dennis Miller and eventually becoming America's funnyman, Bill Crawford looks behind the headlines and tabloid tales to shed new light on this decade's comedic darling.

    I love you ADAM SANDLER!

    I am just a 23 year old, small town girl from Rhode Island, who dreams about one day meeting Adam Sandler. I have all of his movies and I loved this book! P.S. Adam, if you're reading this, I love YOU!

    Adam Sandler is Awesome!

    It was a very good book, it had all the information that a sandler fan would like to know. I really enjoyed it (i already knew some but it gives a good discription of his childhood and all his movies.) I'd recommend it too all sandler fans, and anyone looking for a good biography!
