SETH MEYERS returns for his twelfth season as a cast member, eighth season as head writer and seventh season as the anchor for Weekend Update. In 2011, Meyers won the Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for host Justin Timberlake's musical monologue. He was nominated in the same category in 2012 for host Jason Segel's monologue song. Meyers has also garnered five additional Emmy nominations for his work as a writer on SNL and the 2011 special The Real Women of SNL. Most recently, Meyers was officially named to succeed SNL alumni Jimmy Fallon as the next host of the Late Night franchise on NBC. The assignment will keep Meyers under the production leadership of Lorne Michaels who will continue to oversee Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and Late Night with Seth Meyers.
As the sole "Weekend Update" anchor, Meyers charms audiences as he lampoons top news stories and entertains fan favorite guests including the outlandish and uber trendy correspondent "Stefon" as well as "Drunk Uncle." Before focusing his attention solely on "Update," Meyers was a regular player in sketches, performing numerous characters.
A graduate of Northwestern University, he studied and performed at ImprovOlympic 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.
Meyers hosted the 2010 and 2011 ESPY Awards on ESPN and headlined the 2011 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner to rave reviews.
Meyers currently resides in New York City.
