co-star Chelsea Peretti.[14] Samberg discovered Saturday Night Live
Saturday Night Live
as a child, while sneaking past his parents to watch professional wrestling on television. He was obsessed with the show and his devotion to comedy was frustrating to teachers who felt he was distracted from his schoolwork.[15] Samberg graduated from Berkeley High School in 1996, where he became interested in creative writing and has stated that "[writing classes] were the ones that I put all my effort into... that's what I cared about and that's what I ended up doing."[16] He attended college at University of California, Santa Cruz
University of California, Santa Cruz
for two years before transferring to New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, where he graduated in 2000.[17] Writer Murray Miller was his roommate.[18] Career[edit] Acting and filmmaking[edit] Samberg majored in experimental film. He became a YouTube

and Internet star and made his own comedy videos with his two friends Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone. When YouTube
YouTube
was created in 2005, the streaming of their videos became much more widespread over the Internet. Samberg became a featured player on SNL in part because of the work he had done on their sketch comedy website TheLonelyIsland.com, which helped them land an agent and eventually get hired at SNL.[19] Prior to joining its cast, Samberg was (and remains) a member of the comedy troupe The Lonely Island
The Lonely Island
(along with Taccone and Schaffer). The trio began writing for Saturday Night Live in 2005 and released their debut album, Incredibad, in 2009.

as possibly being racist, telling the studio and television audience "Well, I've gotta say, sure, Donald Trump seems racist. Let's see what else?" He also lampooned U.S. presidential candidate Bernie Sanders

as having an unkempt appearance: "Is it just me or does Bernie Sanders

Guy’s a mess!"[24][25][26] Samberg starred in Sleater-Kinney's "No Cities to Love" video along with other celebrities such as Fred Armisen, Ellen Page, and Norman Reedus.

Saturday Night Live
as a featured player along with Schaffer and Taccone as the show's writing staff. Though his live sketch roles were limited in his first year, he appeared in many prerecorded sketches including commercial parodies and various other filmed segments. On December 17, 2005, he and Chris Parnell starred in the Digital Short show "Lazy Sunday", a hip hop song performed by two Manhattanites on a quest to see the film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The short quickly became an Internet

Another digital short, "Motherlover" (also featuring Timberlake), was released on May 10, 2009 (to commemorate Mother's Day) and is a sequel of "Dick in a Box."[28] Outside of his prerecorded segments, he also participated in recurring live segments, such as his Blizzard Man sketch.[29] On June 1, 2012, Samberg's spokesperson announced that he had left the show.[30][31] He returned to the show as the host on the Season 39 finale in 2014.[32] Personal life[edit] Samberg has described himself as a "superfan" of musician Joanna Newsom, whom he first met at one of her concerts.[33][34] After five years of dating, Samberg proposed to her in February 2013, and they married on September 21, 2013 in Big Sur, California,[35][36][37] with Saturday Night Live
