Seth Meyers bringing politically tinged comedy to Pittsburgh

Shirley McMarlin

With a dad hailing from Pittsburgh and a late-night talk show, Seth Meyers leaves little doubt as to what his Western Pennsylvania show will entail.

Pittsburgh Steelers, Penguins and Pirates talk and political commentary will rule the night when Meyers, host of NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” appears June 14 at the Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall.

Beginning in 2001, Meyers was a “Saturday Night Live” cast member for 13 seasons. He served as head writer for nine seasons and “Weekend Update” anchor for eight.

In 2011, he won the Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for a musical monologue performed by host Justin Timberlake. In all, Meyers has garnered 20 Emmy nominations for his work in television.

Meyers created the famous line, “I can see Russia from my house,” uttered by Tina Fey playing former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

He also portrayed figures such as Prince Charles, Ryan Seacrest, Sean Penn, Tobey Maguire, Peyton Manning, Ty Pennington, Bill Cowher, Brian Williams, Donald Trump Jr. and Tom Cruise.

Meyers hosted the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards and the 2018 Golden Globe Awards.

His signature “Late Night” segment is “A Closer Look,” an edgy take on current events and politics.

Tickets from $39.50-$59.50 go on sale at 11 a.m. April 19 at 877-4-FLY-TIX, ticketfly.com and librarymusichall.com.

Venue presale begins at 10 a.m. April 18 with the passcode “SETHMEYERS.”

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
