Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A comedian who weathered more than his fair share of the critics' ire, Rob Schneider continued to get the last laugh. Although he showed promise with his both his impersonations and original characters on "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ) and scored with several top-lined comedies like "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigalo" (1999), Schneider owed much of his longevity to longtime best friend Adam Sandler, who continually cast him in memorable cameos and supporting roles in hits like "The Waterboy" (1998). Despite coining several catchphrases that captured the national imagination -"Makin' copies!", "You put your weed in there," and "You can do eeet!!" -the self-professed "short and schlubby" comedian struggled to gain respect but found many detractors eager to use his name as a punchline. No matter how maligned Schneider or his projects were, Sandler and other loyal friends were quick to keep him employed in projects the comic helped elevate, making him the go-to man for hysterical cameos and supporting roles in big screen comedies.

Notes

Schneider is the owner of a dance club in Los Angeles (The DNA Lounge) and a restaurant in San Francisco (Eleven).

"I never wanted to do a sitcom. I think most sitcoms are crap. I hate all that hugging and stuff at the end when everyone has supposedly learned a real good lesson. Comedy is supposed to be funny. Seeing people hug and say, I'm sorry I upset you--it won't happen again, is not funny! It's simply boring." --Rob Schneider quoted in DAILY NEWS, October 27, 1996
