In early 2014, Emmy Award winner Seth Meyers joined NBC’s extraordinary late-night legacy as the host of Late Night with Seth Meyers. Succeeding Jimmy Fallon in the 12:35 am spot, Meyers continues to entertain the nation with his wit and perfectly timed comedy.
Meyers began his TV career on Saturday Night Live in 2001. He completed his 13th season on the legendary sketch comedy program in 2014, serving as head writer for nine seasons and Weekend Update anchor for eight seasons. Viewers recognize Meyers for his sharp, satirical commentary on topical events and newsmakers, and hilarious interactions with the wide array of guests that visit the Weekend Update desk.
A graduate of Northwestern University, Meyers 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 also lends his voice to Hulu’s animated superhero show The Awesomes, which he co-created with Mike Shoemaker. The show premiered August 2013 and quickly became a hit releasing its second season in August 2014. Meyers hosted the 2010 and 2011 ESPY Awards on ESPN and headlined the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner to rave reviews. He recently had the honor of hosting the 2014 Emmy Awards.
In 2011, Meyers won the Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for host Justin Timberlake’s musical monologue, and has also garnered 10 additional Emmy nominations for his work as a writer in television. TIME magazine named him one of their “100 Most Influential People” in 2014.
Meyers currently resides in New York City with his wife, Alexi, and their dog, Frisbee.
