Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler used his over-enunciated, silly man-child singing voice for many of his SNL and movie characters from Opera Man to Billy Madison, but his most famous contribution was the ditty "The Chanukah Song." Sandler name-checked famous Jews like David Lee Roth, Kirk Douglas, Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock when he debuted the song on SNL's Weekend Update in 1994, and the song has since been a radio staple during the holiday season. Sandler even wrote two follow-up versions to include other heavyweights who have "so much fun-akah" celebrating Hannukah, like Bob Dylan, Joey Ramone, Lou Reed and all three Beastie Boys.
