FROM Seth Meyers
Seth Meyers: Late Night with Seth Meyers As the anchor of Saturday Night Live's' "Weekend Update," Seth Meyers did lots of material based on the news. As host of NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers , he gets to riff on news stories every day, especially in the show's "Closer Look" segments. Meyers' knack for breaking down the news is one of the ways he's stood out since taking over at Late Night in 2014. In this election year, presidential candidate Donald Trump has provided fodder for many comedians, but Meyers and Trump have a special relationship, dating back to Trump's last presidential run in 2011. That year Meyers made several jokes about Trump while hosting the White House Correspondents' Dinner, and Trump was, shall we say, less than impressed. Meyers tells us what was going through his head the night of that performance, and why it's one of the most difficult gigs in comedy. He also takes us through his very quick transition from SNL to Late Night, and shares how working in Amsterdam early in his career helped him find his comedic footing.

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
