  • Notes 
    • At 17, he took his first exhilarating step towards becoming a stand-up comedian when he spontaneously took the stage at a Boston comedy club. He found he was a natural born comedian. Adam nurtured his comedic talent while at New York University (He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1991.) by performing regularly in clubs and at universities; during his freshman year, he snagged a recurring role as The Huxtable's friend Smitty on The Cosby Show. While working at a comedy club in L.A, he was 'discovered' by Dennis Miller. Dennis caught Adam performing an act at the club one night and recommended him to ”Saturday Night Live” (1975) producer, Lorne Michael and told her that that Adam had a big talent. This led Adam on to a place on the show in 1990. As well as performing, Adam also wrote for the show. After Saturday Night Live, Adam went on to the movies, starring in many hit movies, including Airheads (1994), Happy Gilmore (1996), Billy Madison (1995) and Big Daddy (1999). Adam will next be seen in the movies, Mr. Deeds (2002), alongside fellow Jewish actress, ‘Winona Ryder’ (qv), 8 Crazy Nights (2002) an animated movie about the Jewish festival of Chanukah and Punchdrunk Knuckle Love (2002). Adam also writes and produces many of his own movies. He has also composed songs for many of his movies, including the songs in Wedding Singer, The (1998)_ (qv). Adam has also had many of his songs go on the Billboard Charts, including the classic song, "The Chanukah Song".
