Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers to Perform Comedy Show on Campus March 16
GREENVILLE, S.C.—Seth Meyers, a regular cast member on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” will perform a comedy show Wednesday, March 16 at 8 p.m. in McAlister Auditorium on the Furman University campus.
“An Evening with Seth Meyers,” is open to the public and is sponsored by the Furman University Student Activities Board. Tickets are $10 and available through Ticketmaster.
Seth Meyers returns for his ninth season on "Saturday Night Live," his fourth season as head writer, and his fourth season as anchor of "Weekend Update." Before focusing his attention solely on “Update,” Meyers was a regular player in sketches, performing numerous characters and impressions, most notably, an uncanny portrayal of Senator John Kerry for the show's satire of the 2004 Presidential election.
A graduate of Northwestern University, Meyers studied and performed at ImprovOlympic (where many SNL cast members and writers got their start) before moving on to the Boom Chicago Theater in Amsterdam, Holland. His acclaimed show "Pick-ups and Hiccups" with partner Jill Benjamin toured Europe and eventually caught the eye of "SNL."
Most recently, Meyers has written the script for an upcoming feature, "Key Party," for Lorne Michaels' Broadway Video Motion Pictures. He has appeared in Paul Weitz’s “American Dreamz,” and appeared alongside Brendan Fraser in “Journey to the Center of the Earth.” Meyers can also be seen in “Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist” which debuted in 2008.
