My comedy is different every time I do it. I don't know what the hell I'm doing.
I'm not comfortable being around too many people. I don't like being out in public too much. I don't like going to bars. I don't like doing celebrity stuff. So most of the characters I play are people who don't always feel comfortable beyond their small circle of friends.
My buddies, we've always just tried to make each other laugh, ... I mean, just like all friends hanging out -- that's the goal.
Doing Saturday Night Live definitely affects my relationship with my girlfriend and with my family, because you feel so much pressure to do well that night. But I think everyone's grown to accept that and so they give me my space at the show.
In high school I wanted to be a rock star and was in a lot of bands.
I'll continue to make the typical Adam Sandler comedies.
When the kids are laughing in the audience, I tear up, I'm so happy I did a nice thing.
I still get very scared when I step in front of a live audience.
I don't know what drives me to succeed.
