Seth Meyers | Head Writer/Repertory Player
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 (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.
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. His birthday is December 28.
