Andy Samberg is the writer and cast member of Saturday Night Live whose videos "Lazy Sunday" and "D--- in a Box" made him an Internet celebrity and budding movie star. Samberg grew up in California, but went to New York University to study film. While trying his hand at stand-up comedy, he made short comic films with childhood friends Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer. They called themselves The Lonely Island and got their first big exposure on the it's-almost-TV website Channel101. By 2005 the trio had joined Saturday Night Live, but it was Samberg who got the screen time and the spotlight. With former SNL member Chris Parnell, Samberg appeared in a short music video called "Lazy Sunday," rapping comically about a trip to see the movie The Chronicles of Narnia (2005, based on the novels by C.S. Lewis). The video was released on YouTube and became a sensation. Samberg followed up with a parody duet with Justin Timberlake ("D--- in a Box"), and soon enough Hollywood came calling. Samberg landed the starring role in the 2007 comedy Hot Rod, a part originally intended for Will Ferrell. His pal Schaffer was chosen to direct the feature, with Taccone as a co-star.David Andrew "Andy" Samberg (born August 18, 1978) is an American actor, comedian, rapper and writer best known as a member of the comedy group The Lonely Island and as a cast member on Saturday Night Live. On Saturday Night Live, he and The Lonely Island have been credited with popularizing the Emmy-winning SNL Digital Shorts, the comical short films and music videos starring Samberg and other members of the SNL cast. As a film actor, Samberg has appeared in Hot Rod, Space Chimps, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, I Love You, Man and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.Samberg was born to Margi (née Marrow), an elementary school teacher who taught at Old Mill School, and Joe Samberg, a photographer. He was born in Mill Valley, California, and grew up in a Jewish household. His maternal grandfather, Alfred J. Marrow, served as the executive chair of the American Jewish Congress, although Samberg describes himself as "not particularly religious". Samberg also has two sisters.He was "weaned" on Jewish comedy as a child, in particular, Mel Brooks. As a child, Samberg discovered Saturday Night Live while sneaking past his parents to watch professional wrestling on television. He became "obsessed" with the show, and his devotion to comedy became frustrating to teachers who felt he was unfocused on his schoolwork. In high school, Samberg became interested in creative writing; he says that his writing classes "were the ones that I put all my effort into...that's what I cared about and that's what I ended up doing. Samberg graduated from Berkeley High School in 1996. He went to college at UC Santa Cruz for two years before transferring to NYU for film school. He majored in experimental film, where he starred as "Monkey" in the short film entitled Monkey vs. Robot.In September 2005, The Lonely Island confirmed that Samberg would be joining Saturday Night Live as a featured player and his fellow members of the group would join the show's writing staff. While his live sketch roles were limited in his first year, he appeared in many non-live sketches, including commercial parodies and various other filmed segments.For the December 17, 2005, show, he and Chris Parnell starred in the Digital Short "Lazy Sunday", a nerdcore hip hop song performed by two Manhattanites on a quest to see the film The Chronicles of Narnia. The short quickly became an Internet phenomenon and garnered Samberg significant media and public attention, as did "Dick in a Box," a duet with Justin Timberlake that won a Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics. Samberg has found success with the song "Jizz in My Pants," which garnered over 100 million views on YouTube. His comedy troupe's collaboration with T-Pain, the "I'm on a Boat" music video, had over 48 million views on YouTube after debuting on February 7, 2009, and was nominated for a Grammy Award. Another digital short, "Motherlover" (also featuring Timberlake), was released on May 10, 2009 (to commemorate Mother's Day), and is a sequel of "Dick in a Box." On December 12, 2010, Samberg and the other members of the Lonely Island debuted their next digital short, titled "I Just Had Sex." The video, which has already gathered over 75 million views on YouTube, features R&B singer Akon.
