Early life and background[edit]
Samberg was born in Berkeley, California, on August 18, 1978.[2] His mother,
Marjorie Isabel "Margi" (Marrow), is an elementary school teacher, and his father,
Joe, is a photographer.[5] He has two sisters, Johanna and Darrow.[6] Samberg was
raised in a Jewish family, and describes himself as "not particularly
religious."[7][8][9][10] In a 2019 episode of Finding Your Roots, hosted by Henry
Louis Gates Jr., Samberg discovered that his mother Marjorie, who was adopted, is
the biological daughter of a Sicilian father (Salvatore Maida) who immigrated in 1925,
and a German-Jewish refugee mother (Ellen Philipsborn), who had come to the U.S.
in 1938; they met in San Francisco.[11] Samberg's adoptive grandfather was
industrial psychologist and philanthropist Alfred J. Marrow,[12] through whom he is
a third cousin to U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin.[13]
Samberg attended elementary school with his future Brooklyn Nine Nine co-star
Chelsea Peretti.[14] He discovered 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 [he] put all [his] effort into... that's what [he] cared about
and that's what [he] ended up doing".[16] He attended college at University of
California, Santa Cruz for two years[17] before transferring to New York University's
Tisch School of the Arts, where he graduated in 2000.[18] Writer Murray Miller was
his roommate.[19]
Career[edit]
Acting and filmmaking[edit]
Samberg majored in experimental film. He became an online star and made his own
comedy videos with his two friends Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone.[20] When
YouTube was created in 2005, the streaming of their videos became much more
widespread. Samberg became a featured player on Saturday Night Live in part
because of the work he had done on his sketch comedy website
TheLonelyIsland.com, which helped them land an agent and eventually get hired at
Saturday Night Live.[21] Prior to joining its cast, Samberg was (and remains) a
member of the comedy troupe 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. Samberg appeared in numerous theatrical films,
commercials, music videos, and hosted special events, including the 2009 MTV
Movie Awards.
In 2012, Samberg delivered the Class Day speech at Harvard University,[22] and
starred with Adam Sandler in That's My Boy and Hotel Transylvania as the main
character, Jonathan, a role he reprised for its sequels Hotel Transylvania 2 and Hotel
Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation.[23] In September 2012, Samberg played Cuckoo
in the BAFTA nominated BBC Three series Cuckoo,[24] and in 2013 landed the role
of Detective Jake Peralta in NBC's police sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine which first aired
on September 17 of the same year[25] and led to Samberg winning the Golden Globe
Award for Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy in 2014 for his role as
Peralta. Samberg hosted the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards on September 20,
2015.[26][27][28] Recently, he co-hosted the 76th Golden Globe Awards with Sandra
Oh on January 6, 2019.
Samberg starred in Sleater-Kinney's "No Cities to Love" video along with other
celebrities such as Fred Armisen, Ellen Page, and Norman Reedus. On May 16, 2016,
Samberg and the Lonely Island performed their 2009 hit "I'm on a Boat" with
classroom instruments on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.[29]
In September 2005, Samberg joined 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,
Chris Parnell and he 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 became an Internet phenomenon
and garnered Samberg significant media and public attention, as did "Dick in a Box",
a duet with Justin Timberlake that won a Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding
Original Music and Lyrics.[3] The video for his comedy troupe's collaboration with T-
Pain, "I'm on a Boat", had over 56 million views on YouTube, after debuting on
February 7, 2009. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award. 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".[30] Outside of his
prerecorded segments, he also participated in recurring live segments, such as his
Blizzard Man sketch.[31] On June 1, 2012, Samberg's spokesperson announced that
he had left the show.[32][33] He returned to the show as the host on the Season 39
finale in 2014[34] and in the 40th anniversary special's Digital Short.
Personal life[edit]
Samberg once described himself as a "superfan" of musician Joanna Newsom,
whom he first met at one of her concerts.[35][36] After five years of dating, Samberg
proposed to her in February 2013, and they married on September 21, 2013, in Big
Sur, California,[37][38][39] with Saturday Night Live co-star Seth Meyers serving as
the wedding's groomsman.[40] In March 2014, Samberg and Newsom purchased the
Moorcrest estate in the Beachwood Canyonarea of Los Angeles, California.[41] They
also own a home in the West Village in New York City.[42] The couple announced the
birth of their daughter in August 2017.[43]
