Meyers began his TV career with “SaturdayNight Live” in 2001. Currently
completing his 13th season on the legendary sketch comedy program, he has served as
head writer for nine seasons and “Weekend Update” anchor for eight seasons.
Viewers recognize Meyers for his sharp wit, 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 before being picked up for a second season. Meyers hosted the 2010 and 2011 ESPY Awards on ESPN and headlined the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner to rave reviews. 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.
