Today, we thank the comedy gods for bestowing a special gift upon us.

August 18 is Andy Samberg's 35th birthday. Andy, also known as Ardy Party and Jandy Timsamlake (when cavorting with JT), will forever be our favorite funny guy.

The Berkeley native has accomplished a huge amount in Hollywood. He hit Internet gold as part of The Lonely Island, his slapstick sketch troupe created with junior high BFFs Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer. Their Youtube videos along with stints writing for MTV awards shows landed them in Lorne Michaels' office. In 2005, the trio began writing for "Saturday Night Live" and Andy's ridiculous digital short cameos turned into a recurring cast role for seven years.

Since then, he's starred in dozens of movies and appeared on friends' television shows ("Parks and Recreation," "30 Rock" and "Portlandia"). Andy elevated dick jokes, awkward faces and satirical spoofs to an art form, thus solidifying his place in comedy history. Join us in celebrating his special day as we salute Samberg's 35 funniest moments.

1. Die-hard Samberg fans are familiar with The Lonely Island's 2005 pilot, "Awesometown." So good.
