Before there was Lazy Sunday and the fabulous Dick in a Box there was Awesometown. Created by The Lonely Island crew of Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone, and Andy Samberg (aka the Dudes), Awesometown was a sketch comedy program which showcased a variety of off the wall comedy sketches. Originally created for FOX who rejected it and MTV who also rejected it, Awesometown ended up becoming the attention grabber that got the Dudes their current gigs on Saturday Night Live. Since their arrival, the group has written some of the most popular bits in recent SNL history, most notably, the SNL Digital Shorts. Who wants to bet FOX and MTV are kicking themselves now? Here’s the Dudes in one of their early sketches from the totally awesome Awesometown.
