Seth Meyers’ Best ‘SNL’ Sketches

Considering he’s anchored Weekend Update since 2006, it’s easy to forget that Seth Meyers was once a regular SNL cast member who served as the perfect sketch complement to Jimmy Fallon and Amy Poehler and the show’s go-to slightly nerdy, slightly jocky college sports dude. During his 13-year run on SNL, Meyers showed up in a handful of sketches, bringing in his Red Sox superfandom (see Boston Powers from “The Kings of Catchphrase Comedy”), Irish boy charm (see “Top O’ The Morning”), impersonation talents (see “The Adventures of Peter O’Toole and Michael Caine“) and ability to pull off almost any bizarre supporting character in a way that made his cast mates shine (see his 7 appearances as the mullet-sporting Nerod in “Appalachian Emergency Room”). In anticipation of Seth’s final SNL episode tomorrow night, here’s a look at some of his most memorable characters, impersonations, and sketches that give his time at the Update desk a run for its money.
