SPA To Host Comedian Seth Meyers For Virtual Lecture November 16

Penn State’s Student Programming Association (SPA) will host writer and comedian Seth Meyers for a virtual lecture Monday, November 16, the organization announced Wednesday.

Meyers’ event will begin at 7 p.m. that night. Students can register for the lecture and receive a free ticket through SPA’s website.

SPA is working alongside WPSU Radio to provide access to a Zoom webinar. Tickets will be required to access the livestream event.

Meyers began his career with improv comedy in Chicago before getting his big break on “Saturday Night Live,” where he served as head writer for nine seasons and a cast member for 13 seasons. He notably headlined as the anchor of SNL’s Weekend Update segment alongside Amy Poehler and Cecily Strong.

He later left the show but remained with NBC and launched his own late-night talk show, “Late Night With Seth Meyers.” The show, which airs weeknights, has been on TV for eight seasons and counting.

Like all SPA events, Meyers’ lecture is free for all Penn State students and funded by their student-initiated fee. They’ll need to verify themselves using their Penn State IDs before gaining entrance to the virtual event.
