Rob Schneider is just like the rest of us. He's a dad. He's a husband. And he's a Candy Crush Saga player. OK, he's not really an addict, but he does play the game.
In between doing his stand-up on stage, changing diapers and working on shows or movies, he might have a minute to play a few games of Candy Crush.
"There's no greater feeling than having two of those chocolate balls together. It's one of the greatest feelings I've had in my life," he joked. "It's ridiculously good. Nothing bad happens from there."
Finding the different combinations can be time-consuming and also frustrating. But the only other thing worse than not getting the ingredients down to the bottom, getting enough points or clearing the jellies, for Schneider, is getting a low score.
"If you get a one star, then that sucks," he said.
When he's out of lives, he said, he sneaks his wife's phones away and plays on her phone. But he has to be careful not to use them all or else he gets into hot water with her.
"I don't know how many times my wife said to me, 'Don't use all my lives,'" he said impersonating his wife.
But on the real, he wants to you put down the Candy Crush Saga and come to his show.
