Andy Samberg joins the Ben Stiller comedy roundtable

I love Andy's look at Sarah in this image...



Known for his sometimes outrageous contributions to “Saturday Night Live’s” “Digital Shorts,” Andy Samberg has been a defining presence on the flagship NBC sketch-comedy show for the past five years, a presence he will bring here next week during the 15th annual Nantucket Film Festival.

June 19th, 12pm

A new addition to the Ben Stiller Comedy Roundtable event on Saturday, a program that already boasts Stiller and comedians Zach Galifianakis and Sarah Silverman, Samberg, an Emmy winner who has been an SNL cast-member since 2005, is well-known for his “Lonely Island” series of skits and music videos on the live show.

With ditties that have crossed over to the mainstream through radio, viral videos and record sales, Samberg is responsible for co-writing and producing such parody hits as the Grammy-nominated “I’m On a Boat” featuring rapper T-pain, and “Lazy Sunday,” a video featuring Samberg and SNL alum Chris Parnell in a comedic song about going to see “The Chronicles of Narnia.” Samberg along with childhood friends and producing partners Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, make up The Lonely Island that put out their first album “Incredibad” in 2009.

“Ben, Zach and Sarah are already a killer combo, but the addition of Andy to the mix further solidifies the event as one of the most memorable in festival history,” said festival executive director Colin Stanfield.

===============================

Andy hasn't done anything official with Stiller yet (other than doing some comedy bits in a Night of Too Many Stars), but he has done bits with Sarah Silverman and guested on her show (where they made out).

Thanks to Anony for the scoop!

Let me know if anyone finds video of this event!

Enjoy!
