From the big screen to the big stage, Adam Sandler always brings the jokes. A comedy legend since the early 90s, Sandler has done it all. A producer, actor, comedian and even multi-platinum recording artist, are all careers that Sandler has excelled in.
However, he got his start in show business by performing stand-up comedy and skits on Saturday Night Live. Sandler’s stage presence is second to none and his ability to engage a crowd is what makes him so special.
Throughout his lengthy career, Sandler has befriended many other comedians that are just as talented and passionate as he is. The comedians joining Sandler on this holiday run include Tim Meadows, Rob Schneider, David Spade and Nick Swardson. This squad has worked together on a number of successful comedy films, and this tour should be no different.
The list of movies this hilarious cast has produced or acted in includes: The Benchwarmers, You Don’t Mess With The Zohan, Grown Ups, Hotel Transylvania and Big Daddy just to name a few.
Each one of them is as hilarious as the next. Their similar styles and chemistry is what will make the show that much more enjoyable. Each of them are successful enough to headline their own comedy tour, but doing it together makes it that much more fun.
Here is a quick run down of each of these comedians credentials, and what they will bring to the show.
An old friend of Sandler’s from SNL, Meadows bring plenty of experience to the stage. Meadows got his start in 1991 and was one of the first comedians to ever work alongside Chris Farley.
His comedic skills became critically acclaimed due to the variety of characters he could pull off. Michael Jackson, O.J. Simpson and Tiger Woods are all impressions Meadows can bring to the stage at any time. Meadows also has original character from his time on SNL, “The Ladies Man,” Leon Phelps.
Meadows’ connection to Sandler comes through SNL, and the movies Coneheads and Grown Ups.
His variety of impressions and experience with humor in front of a live audience is what makes Meadows worth seeing. He continues to sharpen his skills to this day by frequently performing improvised comedy in Los Angeles.
Another SNL alum, David Spade is one of the many comedians that doesn’t abide by the, “Act your age,” saying. His comedic style revolves around immaturity, sarcasm and self deprivation.
Spade has mastered this style and turned it in to one of the most successful careers for any stand-up comic. He started at SNL in the early 90s, and is still a big factor in comedy movies and TV sitcoms.
His style is embodied perfectly in his role in the movie, Joe Dirt. He has worked with Adam Sandler in popular movies such as The Benchwarmers and Grown Ups.
Spade has been a household name for years now, and with this cast of characters expect him to bring out his best on this tour.
Nick Swardson was the late addition to this comedic corps; however, put a mic in his hands and he fits right in. Bridging the gap between fans of SNL in the early 90s and teens and young adults of today, Swardson is a stand-up master.
He has become an understudy to these comedy geniuses, and is as close to the reincarnation of David Spade as you can get.
Work ethic and dedication to his craft is what earned him a spot on this tour. Known for his impressions, voice changing ability and affinity for playing some of the strangest characters that Sandler can create, Swardson has acted in many memorable roles over the years.
His ability to translate those skills to live stand-up comedy is what keeps fans coming back for more.
One of Sandler’s oldest friends, Schneider is one of the most naturally funny people on the planet. It is hard to find a movie of Sandler’s that Schneider is not in, which is surprising due to the fact he is usually cast to be the butt of everyone’s jokes.
Schneider met Sandler on SNL and they have been working together ever since. From Big Daddy all the way to Grown Ups, Schneider and Sandler are inseparable.
I’m sure Schneider has plenty of material prepared as he has recently made the news for his controversial pro-Trump stance.
Additionally, he is the only comic scheduled for every show of the tour this time around. He’ll be saving his best material for a tour with his old friend Adam Sandler.
With this line up of comics, if you need a laugh this is a show you can’t afford to miss.
