With his dimpled cheeks and twinkly blue eyes, it’s plain to see why Saturday Night Live’s head writer Seth Meyers is the object of Bill Hader’s affection. He’s been a mainstay at Studio 8H for a dozen years, and while he always entertains when manning the “Weekend Update” desk or channeling Anderson Cooper in a crisis situation, Meyers is just as delightful when he’s being himself. He’s an entertaining talk show guest (check YouTube for clips of him singing Paul Simon songs with Jimmy Fallon) and great on Twitter (Red Sox fans in search of commentary and commiseration should look no further). This bodes well for his forthcoming takeover of Late Night and also for his stand-up performance at the Warner Theatre. Meyers doesn’t peddle any particular gimmicks—no props, no characters, no silly voices—but remains one of the most likeable mainstream comedians out there. Watch him for a couple of hours and you may forgive his regrettable turn in New Year’s Eve.
Seth Meyers performs at 8 p.m. at the Warner Theatre, 513 13th St. NW. $35. (202) 783-4000. warnertheatredc.com.
