Andy Samberg

The Lonely Island Official Instagram

One of Hollywood's funniest actors Andy Samberg began his career on Saturday Night Live.


Samberg got his start on SNL in 2005 and was known for writing digital shorts with the music group The Lonely Island. Outside of his time at SNL, Samberg also made a name for himself as the star of countless films like Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, Storks, and the Hotel Transylvania franchise. He currently stars on the hit comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine and won a Golden Globe for his comedic performance. His new film Palm Springs will be released on Hulu, but we're taking a look back at the show that started it all for Samberg.

Lazy Sunday 

In December of 2005, SNL released the digital short, "Lazy Sunday" where Samberg and Chris Parnell rapped about spending a Sunday together that included watching a matinee of The Chronicles of Narnia and going to Magnolia Bakery for cupcakes. The low quality video was one the first videos to go viral on YouTube and the second ever digital short to air on the show. In 2012, Samberg and Parnell teamed up again to release "Lazy Sunday 2".
