Biography

Berkeley, San Francisco CA, United States (2001 – present)

The Lonely Island is a group consisting of filmmakers Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone, and Andy Samberg (aka The Dudes). The group was originally formed in Berkeley, California - in 2001 - but they now reside in New York City. They wrote, produced, and were featured in the “SNL Digital Shorts” on Saturday Night Live (Samberg was a cast member, Taccone and Schaffer were writers) most notably “Lazy Sunday,” “Dick In A Box” featuring Justin Timberlake, “Jizz In My Pants, “I Just Had Sex” featuring Akon, and “I’m On A Boat” featuring T-Pain. In August 2007, “Hot Rod” was released, which was co-written by the Dudes (with Pam Brady) and directed by Akiva. It co-starred Andy, Jorma and fellow SNL-ers Bill Hader and Chris Parnell, among others.

On February 10, 2009 the Lonely Island’s debut record “Incredibad” was released. It includes most of the SNL Digital Shorts as well as new songs featuring E-40, Julian Casablancas, Beck, Jack Black, and Norah Jones.

On their YouTube channel, The Lonely Island announced an upcoming album on October 28, 2010, which would be released in the spring of 2011. On December 18, 2010, the SNL Digital Short was the official music video of “I Just Had Sex” (featuring Akon), the first single off the album.

On January 29, 2011, the group debuted “The Creep” featuring Nicki Minaj and a cameo by filmmaker John Waters, on SNL and YouTube. On March 15, 2011, Direct Current Music reported that the album would be named Turtleneck & Chain and would be released on May 10, 2011. On April 1, 2011, The Lonely Island appeared as guests on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, where they premiered the lead track, “We’re Back!”, as well as the new album cover.

    The Wack Album is fantastic! I like how they do various styles of good quality rap with really funny lyrics. Usually when you hear a comedy group, the instrumentation is either really weak or rips off another song because they are doing a parody of it. The fact that the production is really good plus the lyrics of funny really makes their latest album one of my favorite rap albums of 2014.

    Previous statement: "Really let down by The Wack Album. No track was really funny or catchy, whereas the previous two albums had a bunch of such songs." So not true anymore. Granted it's definitely not as good as the previous two, but it sure as hell has its share of catchy and funny songs. Although the funniest track isn't even a song, it's "Where's Brooklyn At?" :D
