Adam Sandler: Comic Genius

It never occurred to me while I was listening to Adam Sandler portray a cranky, elderly Toll Booth operator named Willie who threatened rude patrons with grievous bodily harm on his comedy album Theyโ€™re All Gonna Laugh at You! that I was in the auditory presence of a genuine American comic genius. And yet, middle-school meโ€”desperately stifling high-pitched guffaws as I covertly listened to my Discman on the back of that middle school bus nearly 30 years agoโ€”likely wouldnโ€™t have been surprised that this here was a talent in league with Mark Twain himself.

After all, thereโ€™s not an 11-year-old on this planet who finds The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn funnier than โ€œThe Beating of a High School Janitorโ€ or โ€œLunchlady Land.โ€

All of which is to say that Adam Sandler...
