Adam Sandler Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

American actor/comedian, screenwriter, film producer and musician Adam Richard Sandler was born on 9 September 1966, in Brooklyn, New York City USA, and is perhaps best known through his contributions to the TV show “Saturday Night Live” beginning in 1990.

So just how rich is Adam Sandler, as of early 2017? Considering his alround involvement in the entertainment industry, it is probably not surprising that Adam’s net worth is estimated by authoritative sources at over $380 million, accumulated during a career which began over 30 years ago.

Adam Sandler Net Worth $380 Million

Adam’s mother, Judy worked as a teacher in a nursery school, whereas his father, Stanley Sandler was an electrical engineer, both of Russian-Jewish ancestry. Adam Sandler began performing in various comedy clubs in the mid-1980s, while he was studying at the New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts thus opening Sandler’s net worth.

After the graduation in 1988, Adam continued working in various comedy clubs, and fortunately was seen by one of the cast members from ‘Saturday Night Live’, Dennis Miller, and Adam was invited to work on the show as a featured actor, which immediately helped Adam’s net worth as well as his rise in popularity.

Meanwhile, Sandler starred on the big screen in ‘Airheads’ directed by Michael Lehmann. ‘Billy Madison’ directed by Tamra Davis and written by Sandler himself, increasing his net worth as he was nominated by MTV Movie Awards for the Best Comedic Performance. Adam continued his career starring in the films ‘Bulletproof’ with the box office grossing 22 million dollars, ‘Happy Gilmore’ – 41 million, ‘You Don’t Mess with the Zohan’ – 201 million , ‘Bedtime Stories’ directed by Adam Shankman with the box office grossing  212 million, and ‘Grown Ups’ directed by Dennis Dugan and written by Adam Sandler, grossed 162 million dollars, indicating the popularity of the films written by and/or starring Adam Sandler, and lifting his net worth too.

Adam’s later films were also appreciated by both cinema goers and critics, including ‘Punch-Drunk Love’ directed by Paul Thomas Anderson for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award, ‘Big Daddy’ directed by Dennis Dugan which has brought Adam two MTV Movie Awards for Best Comedic Performance, and ‘Funny People’ directed by Judd Apatow after which Adam was invited to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

In 1999 Adam established the film and television production company ‘Happy Madison Productions’, where he worked with Barry Bernardi, Allen Covert, Heather Parry and Scott Sandler among others, producing such films as ‘The Shortcut’, ‘Jack and Jill’, ‘Here Comes the Boom’, ‘Grown ups’ and many others which have also boosted Adam Sandler’s net worth.

In his personal life, Adam Sandler has been married to actress Jacqueline Samantha Titone since 2003, and they have two daughters. Adam’s generous donations to charity are well known too, including to Boys and Girls Club located in Manchester, New Hampshire, where he is domiciled.

#Quote
1 [on how he became involved in Click (2006)] If it's something I feel I can do alright, I like being in those, and some that I think Rob Schneider and David Spade would be funnier at than me, I tell them to do it. I don't have any clue how we decide. There's this thing, this "Click", actually, one of my friends called me up, my partner told me about this idea that Steve Koren had. Steve Koren, by the way, the guy who wrote it with Mark O'Keefe, Steve Koren I've known since I was 22. He was a page at Saturday Night Live (1975). He would answer the phones and he'd give us phone messages and then he'd give you a message and he'd say, "Oh yeah. I wrote a joke." And he'd tell you the joke and you go, "Hey. Steve Koren's pretty funny" and then all of a sudden he's written Bruce Almighty (2003) and this thing and he's a giant writer and he's just a great guy. And anyway, they told me about the premise of the movie and asked if I was interested in that and I didn't even read the script, I just said, "Yeah. That's a huge idea, it sounds great." That's how I decided to do this script, just off three sentences about what the movie's about, I knew it could be awesome.
2 To be honest with you, when I got into this I never thought about reviews. I never thought about what people would say about me. I was just a young guy who was excited to become a comedian and an actor and I just wanted to get to do what I got to do.
3 I wasn't a kid growing up thinking, "One day, I'll get an Oscar and make a speech." That wasn't on my mind. I want to just do the best work I can do.
4 I never had a speech from my father [saying], "This is what you must do or shouldn't do", but I just learned to be led by example. My father wasn't perfect. He had a temper. I took some of that. He would snap, but the older he got, he started calming down. He learned about life, but the thing that he taught my whole family was that family was the most important thing and, no matter what, if a family member needs you, you go and help them out, you get there. He just made us feel comfortable and respectful to other families, my mother also... part of my father having a temper led to me developing a sense of humor to calm the old man down. That kind of sense of humor.
5 [after getting laser eye surgery] Now I realize how ugly I am.

#Trademark

2 In the films he writes, the female characters often have names that begin with the letter V (Veronica Vaughn, Virginia Vennet, Vicki Vallencurt, Vanessa, Valerie Veran)
3 His characters frequently wear licensed professional sports team apparel, based on the locale of the film.
4 Frequently uses 1980s music for the soundtrack of his movies
5 Frequently appears in Rob Schneider films either with a large role or a small cameo.
6 Often plays a character with a bad temper, or a short fuse
