Tim Meadows To Perform Standup At SPA LateNight

Former “Saturday Night Live” cast member and current “Marry Me” star Tim Meadows will be performing standup at the HUB on April 10, at 10 p.m.

The Student Programming Association hosts its Comedy Month every April, and this year’s iteration will feature Meadows as well as the Upright Citizens’ Brigade and “Workaholics” star Adam DeVine.

Meadows’ popularity snowballed during his time on SNL from 1991-2000, which was the longest tenure by a cast member up to that point. Since leaving the show, Meadows has gone on to appear in movies such as “Wayne’s World 2,” “Mean Girls,” and “Grown Ups.” He’s also made numerous impressions on the small screen, appearing on “The Colbert Report,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” and currently plays Kevin 1 on NBC’s “Marry Me.” One of Meadows’ most recognizable scenes came from his brief cameo on “The Office.”

The winner of the March 28 Penn State Joke Off, a standup comedy competition held in the HUB, will be the opening act for Meadows’ show.

Visit SPA’s website for more information about the organization and LateNight.
