Andy Samberg breaks out

On a mediocre season (again) of Saturday Night Live there is a standout of late. His name is Andy Samberg. The hysterical Chronic of Narnia skit is going to be the equivalent of the Chris Farley's Chippendales skit with Patrick Swayze- it's going to put him on the SNL map for good and save the show. Check out his old comedy group The Lonely Island- lots of funny videos on their website. This week's SNL had another good digital short with Andy and he had a funny one with heads of lettuce earlier in the season. His smart, pop culturally aware style of comedy is going to be huge. The show really needs to change directions towards this intelligent humor because lately it's been a series of one-joke skits taken way too far. Things that are funny but get old quickly. This fresh blood is needed. Hopefully Andy's crazy delicious comedy will revive the show.
