What is Adam Sandler’s net worth? Let’s find out. Sandler was born on September 9, 1966, in New York City. He was raised in New Hampshire and was always known as the class clown. He was the kid in class who always made the other students (and even teachers) laugh. Much like Will Smith and Travis Scott, Sandler’s childhood wasn’t bad.
But surprisingly, he didn’t consider a career in comedy until he was 17 when his brother encouraged him to perform at a comedy club in Boston.
While he attended New York University, Sandler continued to perform stand-up, and after graduating, he became a regular on MTV’s game show, Remote Control. Sadly, being on the show did not increase Adam Sandler’s net worth. He was still struggling to make ends meet.
In 1989, he landed his first movie role in Going Overboard. No one really watched the film when it was released in ‘89, so the studio ended up releasing it again in 1996 when Sandler was more well known.
Sandler famously joined the Saturday Night Live cast in the early ‘90s and created lovable characters like Cajun Man and Canteen Boy. It was here that he developed a close friendship with fellow cast member Chris Farley. They are widely considered to be two of the best SNL cast members in history.
Oddly enough, they were both fired from the show with time left still on their contract. It’s a decision Sandler still doesn’t understand. The firing didn’t slow him down, though.
By this time, Adam Sandler’s net worth was growing. Not long after his exit with SNL, Sandler became a household name like Beyonce and made hit movie after hit movie. His comedy classics included Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, The Water Boy and Big Daddy.
In 2002, he surprised everyone with a dramatic performance in Punch Drunk Love, starring opposite Emily Watson and Philip Seymour Hoffman. This started a string of more dramatic roles for Sandler, mixed in with some feel-good comedies like 50 First Dates and Click.
And then for some reason, Sandler went back to the outlandish humor that made him famous and released a series of over-the-top comedy films that were absolutely slammed by critics. But even though the critics seemed to hate him, he still had a wide audience and in 2014 he signed a $250 million deal with Netflix. With a contract that big, Adam Sandler’s net worth was well into the mega-millions.
He’s released multiple comedy films on the streaming service, and in 2018, he surprised everyone by releasing a new stand-up special titled ‘100% Fresh’ which was an obvious dig at the critics.
According to the most recent reports, Adam Sandler’s net worth is an estimated $340 million. In 2015, he made $41 million alone, thanks to the release of a ‘Pixels’ and his lucrative deal with Netflix. He wealth is comparable to Jay Z, Dr. Dre, Travis Scott, and Bill Gates!
