“Andy Samberg is an
amazing comedian, just as offbeat as IFC,” IFC prexy and g.m. Jennifer Caserta said. “We’re thrilled that he’s hosting this
year’s Spirit Awards. This is a real treat for our viewers.”
Samberg, who co-starred in "Celeste and Jesse Forever," hosted the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, which was the
highest-rated version of that show since 2004.
His former "SNL" colleagues Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are co-hosting the Golden Globes on Jan. 13.
