Pilot TV Festival and RAD Screenings have joined forces to present a full day of big-screen comedy material by The Lonely Island trio. The main features are the cult classic Hot Rod, following the aspiring stuntman Rod Kimble (Andy Samberg), and Popstars: Never Stop Never Stopping, a mockumentary on a Justin Bieber-esque pop sensation, with a special compilation of shorts, sketches and clips by The Lonely Island sandwiched between. The gang, consisting of Samberg along with Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, gained fans from their satirical Digital Shorts slots on Saturday Night Live, before going viral with spoof music videos such as ‘I’m on a Boat’, ‘Like a Boss’ and ‘Dick in a Box’.
