RATE AND COMMENT

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.
