LISTEN NOW: Fly On The Wall — Andy Samberg
Andy talked about how after never stepping in the writers room at SNL, aside from those insanely popular pre-tapes, he ventured off into the unfamiliar territory of creating and writing for his own show Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Speaking of those popular pre-tapes, they found a home on YouTube, that contributed to the rise in his recognizability and popularity tenfold. Samberg shared how he and his comedy partners, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone — aka The Lonely Island — fell in love with comedy at a young age all thanks to Saturday Night Live.
Eventually conversing about SNL’s 40th Anniversary show, Dan Aykroyd roaming the halls of Studio 8H, Andy’s audition for the famous sketch-comedy show, and a whole lot more. Listen to it all in the episode above.
