Adam Sandler Hosting Saturday Night Live

Some of the biggest names in comedy got their start on Saturday Night Live, and many of them have returned to host in the years after they went off to begin the next chapter of their career. But one of the biggest success stories to come out of the late night sketch comedy series has never hosted in the 24 years since leaving the show. That’s about to change.

Fans will finally get to see Adam Sandler hosting Saturday Night Live next month for the first time ever. Though Sandler has returned to the show a couple times to make quick cameo appearances, this will be his first prominent return to the place that launched his comedy career. Read More »

Adam Sandler Chris Farley Tribute

We know Adam Sandler‘s film career over the past couple decades has left a lot to be desired. When he dabbles in drama like The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), Reign Over Me, Spanglish, or Punch-Drunk Love, we get a glimmer of his true skill as an actor. But on the comedy side, it’s been 10 years since Adam Sandler was truly great in a movie. That was Funny People, and that’s not even a movie he made with his usual crew of knuckleheads.

Thankfully, Adam Sandler showed that he still has some tricks up his sleeve when it comes to bringing the laughs. But he had to really dig deep into his early comedy roots to get it. Sandler’s Netflix special 100% Fresh was a return to form for the comedian who found fame by making up silly songs on Saturday Night Live and used to make a name for himself with signature comedy albums. That’s exactly what he delivered with 100% Fresh, and now he’s bringing 100% Fresher to the masses, a 19-stop comedy tour across the United States this summer. Get the dates for the new Adam Sandler 2019 comedy tour below. Read More »

The Waterboy Adidas Clothing

Remember the time Bobby Boucher showed up at halftime and the Mud Dogs won the Bourbon Bowl, do ya?

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 20 years since The Waterboy hit theaters. The sports comedy starring Adam Sandler is such a product of the decade in which it came out as it follows a dimwitted Louisiana college football waterboy named Bobby Boucher who becomes a star football player when he inadvertently taps into the rage that comes from a life of being bullied and tackles the hell out of his opponents.

The folks at the sportswear company Adidas think the movie deserves a special celebration by debuting limited edition gear inspired by the South Central Louisiana State University Mud Dogs, the losing team who becomes champions thanks to the fierce tackling of Bobby Boucher. It’s the 20th anniversary, so we can’t hold anything back now.
