Comedian Seth Meyers heads to Richmond

Popular comedian, writer and Saturday Night Live cast member Seth Meyers will be in Richmond next week to present a night of comedy.

The Feb. 2 show, at River Rock Show Theatre, comes as Myers is in his 12th season as an SNL cast member and seventh season as head writer and “Weekend Update” anchor.

Meyers studied and performed at Chicago’s ImprovOlympic where many SNL cast members and writers got their start, before moving on to the Boom Chicago Theatre in Amsterdam. He eventually caught the eye of SNL and joined the show in 2001.

Myers also has several film credits and last summer filled in as co-host on Live! opposite Kelly Ripa for several shows.

He started doing stand-up shows five years ago, and has since then been performing to sold-out audiences throughout Canada and the United States.

A few tickets ($60) remain for the 8 p.m. show. Visit ticketmaster.ca or call 1-855-985-5000.
