Andy Samberg Biography: The Lonely Island, 'SNL' Born August 18th, 1978 in Mill Valley, California, David Andrew Samberg grew up with comedy idols like Steve Martin, Mel Brooks and Adam Sandler. As teens, he and his friends Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone began performing schoolyard comedy routines to avoid being beaten up, and eventually the trio started making unpolished videos as The Lonely Island. They posted these digital shorts online to almost immediate success, and eventually a chance encounter with "Saturday Night Live" alum Jimmy Fallon led to an audition on the show. Samberg joined the cast, and together with his friends produced even more popular digital shorts until he left the show in 2012.
