Early life

Samberg was born in Mill Valley, California on August 18, 1978 to Margi (née Marrow), an elementary school teacher who taught at Old Mill School, and Joe Samberg, a photographer.[1] He grew up in a Jewish household and his paternal grandfather, Alfred J. Marrow, served as the executive chair of the American Jewish Congress.[2] He was "weaned" on Jewish comedy as a child, in particular, Mel Brooks.[3] At the age of 8, Samberg began dreaming about being on Saturday Night Live.[3]

Career

Samberg is a member of the comedy troupe The Lonely Island (along with Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer) whose debut album Incredibad was released in 2009, and is currently a cast member on Saturday Night Live. Samberg also appeared in a Super Bowl XLII Pepsi commercial featuring Justin Timberlake.[4]

Saturday Night Live

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 Lonely Island 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.[5] Samberg has found success with the song "Jizz in My Pants", which has garnered over 74 million views on YouTube.[6] His comedy troupe's recent collaboration with T-Pain, the "I'm on a Boat" music video, has had over 39 million views on YouTube after debuting on February 7, 2009 and was nominated for a Grammy award in 2009. Another digital short, "Motherlover" (also featuring Timberlake), was released on May 10, 2009 (to commemorate Mother's Day) and is a sequel to "Dick in a Box" SNL video.

Personal life

In late 2007, Samberg began dating Joanna Newsom, an independent musician.[7] The couple was confirmed to still be dating as of February 2010.[8]

  • You have Mel Brooks and your Marx Brothers and your Larry David. So it's affected it enormously and really not at all. I don't think I've ever done anything comedically where the joke of it had to do with Judaism and Jewishness, but there's definitely a proud tradition of comedy in the Jews.
