STG Announces Upcoming Events: Seth Meyers and More
Seth Meyers returns for his tenth season on "Saturday Night Live," his fifth season as head writer, and his fifth 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, he 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 hosted the 2010 ESPY Awards on ESPN. Meyers currently resides in New York. His birthday is December 28.
Venue: The Moore (All Ages / Bar w/ ID)
