Seth Meyers began his career at Boom Chicago where his shows attracted the attention of Saturday Night Live scouts. After a 13 year stint at SNL, nine of which were head writer, he was given his own Emmy Award winning TV show Late Night with Seth Meyers. His A Closer Look segments are watched around the world and provide a smart, insightful and very funny take on US politics. Seth was named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in 2014. Seth’s recent Netflix special, Lobby Baby, is one of the most watched comedy specials on that network in 2019.

Seth hosted the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2011 where many say his scathing takedown of Donald Trump caused him to run for president. Seth owes us all an apology for that.

Seth also executive produced and lent his voice to Hulu’s animated superhero show The Awesomes, which ran for three seasons. In addition, he joined forces with SNL alums Fred Armisen and Bill Hader to create the critically acclaimed docu-parody series Documentary Now for a four-season run. See more!
