Seth Meyers, the Weekend Update anchor and head writer of Saturday Night Live, will present an evening of standup comedy at 8pm Feb 25 at the University at Buffalo Center for the Arts on the North Campus, Amherst.
The star of Saturday Night Live’s ‘Weekend Update’ comes to UB Center for the Arts 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.
Tickets are $35 and go on sale this Friday (Jan 20) at 10am through the box office, ticketmaster.com and Ticketmaster outlets, or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
