Adam Sandler began doing stand up comedy at the age of 17, when he spontaneously took the stage at a Boston comedy club and found he had a natural comedic talent. Sandler continued to nurture his stand up skills while at NYU by performing at New York comedy clubs.
During his freshman year, Sandler snagged a recurring role as Theo Huxtable’s friend on The Cosby Show. He then earned a role on MTV’s tv show Remote Control. Here are some early videos of a young Adam Sandler doing stand up comedy.
