41 Andy Samberg Andy Samberg Andy Samberg is an American actor and comedian. He is a member of the comedy group The Lonely Island and was a cast member on Saturday Night Live, where he and his fellow group members have been credited with popularizing the SNL Digital Shorts.

Andy Sandberg is one of a few comedy actors that this younger generation can relate too. His random but creative Lonely Island videos are the funniest I've ever seen. He should definitely be on the top 10!

He's too low to be honest. He's a natural you gotta give that to him. And for me, he is just perfect in the hang over. No one could have done his role so good I just died at his speech in The Hang Over pt. 2. So good

He's the best ever what is wrong with you people

He's got a talent to make people laugh & he's got a kind of body language that makes people to go for L M F A O. BUT he's a great comedian in second place cause first place is taken by one and only ken jeong (Hangover super gangster & great comedian of all time).

Why is he criminally underrated in this list?

Everything he does is flat out hilarious.
