Adam Sandler, in collaboration with director Benny Safdie of Uncut Gems fame, is set to bring laughter to Netflix once again with a brand-new comedy special. This venture marks the duo’s second foray into comedy specials on the streaming platform, following the success of “100% Fresh” in 2018, directed by Steven Brill with contributions from Paul Thomas Anderson, reports Deadline.
Sandler’s enduring partnership with Netflix extends beyond comedy specials, encompassing a string of successful films under his longstanding deal. The collaboration includes a diverse range of projects such as Leo, You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah, Hustle, Murder Mystery, Murder Mystery 2, Hubie Halloween, Sandy Wexler, The Week Of, The Do-Over, and The Ridiculous 6. Additionally, Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison, has delivered hits like Father of the Year, The Wrong Missy, and The Out-laws.
Adam Sandler’s illustrious career kicked off with notable roles in The Cosby Show and his film debut in Going Overboard. His journey into the stand-up comedy circuit led to discovery by Dennis Miller, who recommended him to Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels. Sandler’s time on SNL as a writer and featured performer became a stepping stone for his ascent in the entertainment industry.
Despite his departure from SNL, Sandler’s film career soared to unprecedented heights, with box office successes exceeding $3 billion. Memorable titles such as Grown Ups, You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, Billy Madison, Big Daddy, and The Waterboy cemented his status as a Hollywood heavyweight.
Looking ahead, Adam Sandler’s upcoming Netflix film, Spaceman, is generating anticipation. Set to premiere at the Berlin Film Festival and available for streaming on March 1, the film adds another chapter to Sandler’s extensive and diverse body of work.
