Adam Sandler remembers his reaction to being fired from SNL

04 December 2019

Adam Sandler was nominated at the awards that celebrate independent films in the category of Best Actor for his upcoming A24 film, Uncut Gems. After serving on Saturday Night Live, the comedian starred in hit movies such as The Waterboy, Big Daddy, and The Wedding Singer. Before being the star of the blockbusters, he had to overcome a major obstacle, the fact that he was sacked as a member of the SNL cast.

Adam hasn't been shy about sharing his side of the events over the years, and even hilariously discussed it in his SNL monologue when he hosted the show in May.

Sandler revealed in the interview that the inspiration for his character Howard Ratner actually partially came from Stern himself.

Adam Sandler has reached back into the memory banks and opened up about his firing from "Saturday Night Live".

"I was probably sad into covering the sadness up into being mad and saying, 'oh f-k you.'" Adam shared about his feelings at the time.

So much time has passed, not everyone remembers that both Sandler and Farley (who died in 1997) didn't quit - they were fired. "We both said", F - k this s - t.

He continued, "It's good when you're a little older to be around some of these young guys who are so God damn excited about everything and so smart and I can't wait to do it again with them".

Turns out for Adam, it was for the best. The comedian made a drastic turn to star as a New York Diamond District dealer that goes down a risky rabbit hole in the Safdie Brothers' Uncut Gems. He forgave, but that does not mean he forgot.

"This is how I got fired", Sandler recounted. I said, "I do not know any man, I have a few things left".
