The Lonely Island

The Lonely Island is an American comedy troupe composed of Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone, and Andy Samberg, best known for their comedic music. Originally from Berkeley, California, the group is currently based in New York City. The group broke out due to their collective work from 2005-2011 on Saturday Night Live, featuring Samberg as a cast member and Taccone and Schaffer as writers. All three left their jobs at SNL, with Taccone leaving at the conclusion of the 2010-2011 season and Samberg and Schaffer departing the next year.

Once on the show, they wrote "Lazy Sunday", a music parody video that became an instant hit on YouTube. In August 2007, the group premiered its first feature film, Hot Rod. Following the success of "Lazy Sunday", the group produced the Emmy-winning "Dick in a Box", "Jizz in My Pants", "Like a Boss", and the Grammy-nominated "I'm on a Boat", which have subsequently had huge success both on SNL and on the internet, and prompted the release of the 2009 album, Incredibad. In 2011, the group released their second album, Turtleneck & Chain, which featured songs from such SNL digital shorts as "I Just Had Sex" featuring Akon, "The Creep" featuring Nicki Minaj, and "Jack Sparrow" featuring Michael Bolton. The music video of "I Just Had Sex" featuring Akon has received over 195 million hits on YouTube.

Famous quotes containing the words island and/or lonely:

    That island of England breeds very valiant creatures; their
    mastiffs are of unmatchable courage.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
    There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
    There is society where none intrudes
    By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
    I love not man the less, but nature more,
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
