The star of such box office smashes as The Waterboy, Billy Madison, The Wedding Singer and Happy Gilmore, Adam Sandler first came to prominence in the early 1990s as one of the stars of Saturday Night Live. But though he tends to play broad, over-the-top type of characters on screen, Sandler is surprisingly quiet and private off screen, devoting much of his time and resources to many charitable causes with little to no fanfare.
In many respects that is the focus of Adam Sandler: Celebrity with Heart, a new book by award-winning author and journalist Michael Schuman. We’ll talk about Sandler’s early work in television, including his appearances on The Cosby Show, MTV’s Remote Control and Saturday Night Live, when Michael joins us in our second hour.
Joining us in our first hour will be David Krell with a breakdown of the various issues at stake in Charlie Sheen’s lawsuit against Warner Bros. following his dismissal last week from Two and a Half Men. Plus: Tony Figueroa, Donna Allen and another visit with Doctor Rerun.
