Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Andy Samberg joined an esteemed list of breakout performers to emerge from one of television's most revered comedy training grounds, "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ), during his seven-year run. Getting his start in television as an assistant on the political sitcom "Spin City" (ABC, 1996-2002), Samberg's talent and drive landed him a spot as a cast member on "SNL" in 2005.

Before long, the comedic actor was starring in solo projects like the man-child comedy "Hot Rod" (2007) and lending his voice to animated features, "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" (2009) among them. Buoyed by their success, The Lonely Island released the hit album Incredibad in 2009, followed by Turtlenecks & Chains in 2011. In 2013, Samberg was cast in the lead...
