The Lonely Island Biography

Friends since childhood, Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone and Andy Samberg coined their name in the industry from the cramped west coast apartment they shared as comic start-ups. "The three of us have been friends forever," said Samberg. "Since junior high and high school, and then we all eventually moved in together, starting out, basically, doing joke music. Our first projects were always about mixing music with comedy."

Their willingness to embrace the digital possibilities of comedy was christened by the launch of their own website in 2001. The group showcased their music and comedic talents by creating webisodes and digital shorts. In 2005, they were invited to write portions of the MTV Movie Awards, which Jimmy Fallon hosted. Impressed with the group's material, he brought the trio to the attention of Lorne Michaels, who later signed them on "Saturday Night Live".
