In 1988, he was hired as a VeeJay for MTV's TV-trivia game show Remote Control.
At 17, he took his first exhilarating step towards becoming a stand-up comedian when he spontaneously took the stage at a Boston comedy club.
While working at a comedy club in L.A, he was 'discovered' by Dennis Miller. Dennis caught Adam performing an act at the club one night and recommended him to Saturday Night Live (1975) producer, Lorne Michaels and told him that Adam had a big talent. This led Adam on to a place on the show in 1990. As well as performing, Adam also wrote for the show.
He has also composed songs for many of his movies, including the songs in The Wedding Singer (1998). Adam has also had many of his songs go on the Billboard Charts, including the classic song, ‘The Chanukah Song’.
