Andy Samburg: We Let The Hijinks Begin

Posted: Updated:

Like so many little boys, And Samberg grew up wanting to become a policeman.

 

That's a joke, says the New York Daily News. He actually grew up wanting to become what he did become .. a comedian. So, lucky Andy. He gets to play both in Fox's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," a sitcom set in a cop shop.

No one should be even a little bit surprised that Detective Jake Peralta, the cop played by Samberg, is also a joker.   He's the kind of detective who walks around a crime scene, sees his boss — played by Andre Braugher — come in, and buoyantly declares, "Welcome to the murder."

But if you're a New Yorker and see Andy on the street, he says you'd never mistake him for a real cop.  "I could last maybe 30 seconds trying to impersonate a real cop," says Samberg. "I don't want to belittle the work that actual police officers do."

Andy joins Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.

  • Before joining the late night comedy show SNL, Samberg was a YouTube and Internet star. He first began making comedy videos with his two friends Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone. When YouTube was created in 2005, the streaming of their videos became much more widespread over the Internet.

    Sutter Zachman had his first record deal when he was barely out of his teens. You may have seen the Orange County native was on stage at the Largo and other hot clubs around LA. He then left town...after what he called a few "bouts" with the music business, but now he is back with a new EP called ‘Repeat Offender.'
