The Lonely Island is a funny place to go

The lonely Island releases their first album Icredibad tomorrow. Check it out here. The trio of Andy Samburg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone seem like the Mighty Boosh of America to us. They are doing something fresh, mixing simple slapstick, well written comedy with popular music.  

Their big break came when they were picked up by Saturday Night Live. Samburg acts the two others are writers for the show. They got that gig by tapping into the digital trend of creating their own fan base using youtube and their own website. The shows producers saw their home made sketches online and immediately got them on board.  

You just need to look at the production budget of "I'm on a boat" to see that these guys are on their way to doing alot more very funny things!
