Star of Saturday Night Live's 'Weekend Update' comes to the BYHAM THEATER for a rare night of standup! As head writer for SNL, Seth Meyers has helped shape some of the best comedy of the last 10 years and recently delivered an absolutely incredible & hilarious keynote at this year's White House Correspondents Dinner.
The New Hampshire-born Seth Meyers graduated from Northwestern University and soon joined the improv/sketch comedy group Boom Chicago, which performed in Chicago, London, Amsterdam, Edinburgh and Singapore. Meyers also performed with Chicago's Improv Olympic, which has been used as a springboard by many other SNL cast members and writers.
During a performance at the Chicago Improv Festival, he caught the eye of SNL producers and was soon hired as a featured player. In addition to contributing to numerous sketches, Meyers appears in the recurring "Jarret's Room" sketch as DJ Jonathan Feinstein as well as co-hosting the Irish talk show "Top O' The Morning" as William Fitzpatrick, opposite Jimmy Fallon's Patrick Fitzwilliam. He has also contributed notable impressions of Hugh Grant, Russell Crowe, Tobey Maguire, Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry and NBC News' Stone Phillips and Brian Williams.
