Sandler's films have grossed over $3 billion worldwide and include box office hits such as Grown Ups, Big Daddy, The Longest Yard, and The Waterboy.

The Meyerowitz Stories directed by Noah Buambach, was loved by audiences and critics alike. Sandler will also begin filming this summer for his newest Netflix comedy Murder Mystery, alongside an all-star international cast including Jennifer Aniston and Luke Evans.

After a long twenty-year absence from the comedy stage, Sandler has also found time between films to perform in front of live audiences in a sold-out tour over the last couple of years in the U.S. and Canada. He is now in the process of capturing his live comedy for an upcoming Netflix special. In 2014, Sandler signed a deal with Netflix to produce and star in four original movies to premiere on the streaming channel making him one of the first actor/producers to do so. The pairing has been so successful Netflix recently re-upped Sandler's deal with four more films added to the mix.

As one of the world's most iconic comedians, Sandler has accumulated a plethora of accolades including eight People's Choice Awards, five MTV Movie Awards, six Kids Choice Awards, two Grammy nominations for Comedy Album of the Year, a Golden Globe nomination for Punch-Drunk Love, a 2018 Critics Choice nomination for The Meyerowitz Stories, CinemaCon's 2014 Male Star of the Year, and most recently, the 2018 Webby Award for Overall Achievement for his Netflix films.

Sandler's prolific film career includes starring roles in the Sony films Pixels for director Chris Columbus and the successful Hotel Transylvania franchise, where he lent his voice to 'Dracula.' Sandler also reunited for the third time with Drew Barrymore in Blended and starred in both Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2. His other roles include, That's My Boy, Jack and Jill, Just Go With It, director Mike Binder's Reign O'er Me opposite Don Cheadle, and in the box-office hits Click, The Longest Yard, James L.

His other film credits include the Jason Reitman film Men, Women and Children, Tom McCarthy's The Cobbler, Universal's Funny People, written and directed by Judd Apatow and Paul Thomas Anderson's Punch-Drunk Love, for which he received a Golden Globe nomination.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Manchester, New Hampshire, 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 throughout the state, while earning a degree in Fine Arts from New York University. While performing stand up, he was spotted by Dennis Miller and recruited to join the "Saturday Night Live" team where he was a regular for five seasons. He also appeared on MTV's "Remote Control," "The Cosby Show," and various other television shows and films including Airheads, Coneheads, and Mixed Nuts.
