Seth Meyers Taping New Standup Comedy Special

Seth Meyers is bringing his standup act to Chicago this Spring, where he’ll be taping a new special at the Vic Theatre.

It’s unclear when and on what platform Meyers’ special will be released, but his previous hour, Lobby Baby, premiered on Netflix in 2019.

That special saw Meyers mining his personal life for stories about marriage proposals, his chaotic wedding day, and — as the title suggests — the time his wife Alexi gave birth to their son in the lobby of their apartment building.

That’s a premise that sounds hard to top, but the couple has since welcomed another child. Here’s hoping it gave him some more good material.

The host of NBC’s Late Night has been spending a lot of time on the standup stage recently. In addition to performing weekend solo dates across the country, he’s also in the middle of a six-date monthly residency with fellow late-night host John Oliver at New York’s Beacon Theater.

Meyers is no stranger to Chicago, where the special is being taped. He was raised in New Hampshire, but born in Evanston, Ill., a Chicago suburb that’s also home to his alma mater, Northwestern University.

Meyers will tape the special over two performances on Saturday, June 15. Tickets for both tapings became available Friday morning and can be purchased here.
