Mr. Pibb and Red Vines? Crazy delicious.
According to Andy Samberg, anyway.
The shaggy-haired Internet sensation and “SNL” funnyman will take the Center stage at the O’Connell Center on Tuesday. The event is sponsored by Accent Speakers Bureau and Jewish Awareness Month.
Samberg’s been working on his brand of quirky, sometimes bizarre comedy with partners (and long-time friends) Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, both of who are now writers on “SNL.”
The trio, known collectively as The Lonely Island, has since worked together on such viral hits as “Lazy Sunday,” “D**k in a Box,” and the Emmy-nominated “Motherlove.”
Samberg himself has taken to the big screen in roles such as the quick-talking younger brother in “I Love You, Man” and as a wannabe stunt man in “Hot Rod.” He has also performed stand-up in New York and Los Angeles and was featured on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend.”
The event is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8.
