What’s New With Seth
Seth Meyers most recently did a stint as Kelly Ripa’s guest co-host on Live With Kelly, while Saturday Night Live is on hiatus. Though he was an audience favorite to take over the seat exited by Regis Philbin earlier this year, Seth has been quoted as saying he’ll return to SNL for its 38th season this Fall.
Seth wrote two feature films, Alone For The Holidays and Key Party, both scheduled to premiere in 2013.
A native of New Hampshire, Seth attended Northwestern University where he began writing and performing sketches. He then went on to study improv and sketch comedy at the famous i.O. in Chicago.
In 2001, Seth joined the cast of Saturday Night Live as a featured player along with Amy Poehler. Two years later he was raised to the main cast, which also consisted of Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey. In 2005, Seth was promoted to co-Head Writer, a position previously held by the likes of Tina Fey, Adam McKay and Al Franken. He currently serves as SNL’s Weekend Update anchor as well as the show’s Head Writer.
Seth’s big screen credits include roles in Journey To The Center Of The Earth, Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist and the star-studded New Year’s Eve with Jessica Biel, Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert De Niro. He served as Executive Producer on MacGruber, which starred fellow Saturday Night Live castmates, Will Forte and Kristen Wiig.
Seth is a multiple Primetime Emmy writing nominee for Saturday Night Live. He won the Emmy in 2011 for Outstanding Music and Lyrics alongside Justin Timberlake. He’s also a three-time Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) Award winner for his work on SNL.
