Seth’s comedy career started when he was a member of Mee-Ow Show, an improv sketch group in university. Following his time at university, Seth joined Preponderate and Boom Chicago, two improv troupes. This experience helped him land a job on the hit show “Saturday Night Live” in 2001, and his work ethic and funny bone propelled him to writing supervisor, co-head writer, head writer and co-anchor for the show’s “Weekend Update.”
Throughout his tenure at SNL, Seth appeared in several motion pictures, including “See This Movie,” “American Dreamz,” “Journey to the Center of the Earth” and “New Year’s Eve.” He also directed a web series called “The Line” for Crackle and hosted a wide array of award shows, such as “2011 Espy Awards,” “66th Primetime Emmy Awards” and “4th Annual NFL Honors.”
He left the long-running sketch comedy in 2014, when he was tapped to be the new host of NBC’s “Late Night,” succeeding Jimmy Fallon.
Outside of the entertainment industry, Seth is quite the philanthropist, participating in Bravo’s “Celebrity Poker Showdown.” He is also politically active, donating $4,000 to former President Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns.
Seth is a big sports junkie, being a fan of the Boston Red Sox, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Boston Celtics. He spends a lot of his free time watching sports and reading comic books.
