Some of my friends and I had the opportunity to watch Seth Meyers perform standup comedy at Zellerbach yesterday. All in all, it was a hilarious performance, and the head writer of Saturday Night Live (and current anchor of the Weekend Update segment) has still got it!
I wasn’t sure what to expect, since I’m used to watching him only during Weekend Update, but Seth Meyers turned out to be funny, animated, and insightful.
He definitely did his research and prepped well for the Berkeley audience, cracking jokes about the current Republican candidates, college and dating life, as well as his personal experiences.
Although the show itself was only about an hour, I think I spent a good portion of that hour laughing. Quality definitely trumps quantity.
Below is a video of Seth cracking some good jokes at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner:
