His feature debut, "Hot Rod," was directed by Akiva Schaffer and also starred Jorma Taccone, Ian McShane, Sissy Spacek, Isla Fisher and Bill Hader.

Samberg, along with his Lonely Island partners Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, released their first full-length album, "Incredibad," on Universal Republic Records in February 2009. "Incredibad" is the first comedy album to reach the #1 spot on iTunes and features favorites such as "D**k in a Box" and "Natalie's Rap" (featuring actress Natalie Portman and Chris Parnell), as well as new musical creations featuring a diverse arsenal of guest artists including hip-hop impresario T-Pain, Grammy-winning superstar Norah Jones, The Strokes' Julian Casablancas, Bay Area rapper and The Click founder E-40 and comedy hellion and Tenacious D veteran Jack Black.

Samberg has been a long-running cast member on "Saturday Night Live." His breakthrough performance with the veteran comedy showcase was the music video "Lazy Sunday," a collaboration with SNL alum Chris Parnell. "Lazy Sunday" was an undeniable online phenomenon that amassed over five million hits on YouTube.com within a few days and sparked its own legion of Internet imitations. The controversy surrounding the legal ramifications of online video content thrust the story into the media spotlight, highlighting Samberg as the poster-child for a new generation of DIY filmmakers and comics.

The following season, Samberg, Schaffer and Taccone again made waves with the short video "D**k in a Box," starring Samberg and Justin Timberlake in a spoof on early 90s R&B. "D**k In a Box" at one time ranked as the #4 all-time video on YouTube.com with more than 20 million views. The song reached unprecedented levels of popularity both online and in print, culminating in Samberg joining Timberlake on stage at Madison Square Garden in February 2007 and performing the song live for more than 18,000 fans. The classic R&B spoof won a 2007 Emmy Award for "Outstanding Music and Lyrics."

Samberg, Schaffer and Taccone, collectively known as "The Lonely Island," have been friends since junior high school in Berkeley, CA. In 2000, the trio began writing, directing and producing their own brand of comedy and showcasing it on their website, www.thelonelyisland.com. Some highlights include one of Channel101.com's longest running primetime shows, "The 'Bu," a parody of "The O.C.," and a sketch comedy pilot created for Fox titled "Awesometown."

Prior to joining "Saturday Night Live," Samberg performed stand-up comedy in both New York and Los Angeles for seven years and was featured on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend" in 2005.

Samberg attended college at UC Santa Cruz and graduated from NYU's Tisch School for the Arts with a film degree in 2000.
