SNL funnyman Seth Meyers to speak for free at UT Arlington in November
You'll want to get tickets in advance.
ARLINGTON You could see Seth Meyers, Saturday Night Live's star of the funny news segment Weekend Update, for free this November. He's performing at the University of Texas at Arlington's glitzy new College Park Center, which has played host to other top-level talent like hip-hop star Drake when the facility opened in spring 2012.
Meyers is part of UTA's five-speaker series. The titles of each speaker series make them sound snoozy, but look past that and consider the subjects: a Sports Illustrated editor, an astronaut, and comedian Meyers, to name a few.
Tickets are free and open to the public, though you'll want to grab tickets in advance. Tickets become available October 25, 2012 for Meyers' show on November 19, 2012.
