There was a miniature SNL reunion last Monday night when Bill Hader stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to reminisce about the good times he had playing the delirious and beloved character, Stefon. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Late Night with Seth Meyers (1-10 of 17)
Tuesday’s episode of The Tonight Show started not with a “hello,” but with a “nanu nanu” from The Roots’ Questlove. The drummer was paying tribute to Robin Williams, who died Monday at 63: “Nanu nanu” was how Mork said goodbye to his fellow aliens in ’70s sitcom Mork and Mindy, the show that gave Williams his start.

After opting out of his contract with the Miami Heat, LeBron James has a big decision to make. And luckily for him, Seth Meyers has an offer he can’t (but probably will) refuse.
On Late Night with Seth Meyers, Meyers and his team put together a rather compelling argument for James to take his talents to New York, but not in the way you’re thinking. Meyers isn’t recruiting James to the New York Knicks. Nope: Meyers thinks James’ talents are better suited for an office setting that offers him a computer, a tape dispenser, access to tons of electrical outlets, and eight different kinds of milk to keep his bones strong. Not to mention that the Late Night office has “heat, calves, and [nail] clippers.” So really, is it all that different from the basketball world?
Today in “sentences that once seemed impossible”: Lena Dunham performed an interpretive dance to Sia’s latest hit, “Chandelier,” on Late Night with Seth Meyers Tuesday night.
As fans of Sia — a singer who’s also written songs for Beyonce and Katy Perry, among others — are aware, the musician doesn’t like appearing on camera. “Chandelier” is the first single off her upcoming solo album 1000 Forms Of Fear, Sia’s first since 2010’s We Are Born.
Inspired by the song’s official video, the Late Night performance finds Dunham (wearing a blond wig not unlike the one Hannah Horvath wore last season on Girls) dancing around a bedroom set, smashing things and rocking out. You know, as one does. Important note: For this entire performance, Sia is also lying facedown on a bed.

Let’s take a moment to celebrate Jennifer Lawrence’s actual best friend,
you a woman named Laura Simpson.
Lawrence was on Late Night with Seth Meyers Wednesday, promoting X-Men: Days of Future Past. Of course, Meyers immediately wanted scoop from her most recent Oscars night. Lawrence charmingly obliged, and explained that her BFF Simpson demanded to be her date to the ceremony this time around — and apparently, Simpson is quite the bad influence on the Oscar-winning leading lady.
Lawrence said that Simpson encouraged her to drink — a lot — and yell at an amazing-smelling Brad Pitt. The night culminated with Lawrence vomiting on the steps of a fancy-pants, Madonna-hosted after-party. The kicker? Miley Cyrus saw the scene play out — and told Lawrence to get it together.
Brief moment of humiliation in exchange for a party anecdote she’ll be telling forever? Sounds like a deal: READ FULL STORY
It’s already been a whole year since Seth Meyers and Stefon ran away together on Bill Hader’s final episode of Saturday Night Live — but Meyers remembers the wedding like it was yesterday.
“He was emotional, and I was emotional, and we’re sitting there, holding hands and almost crying, and he’s got a wedding veil, and I’m like, ‘This is a lot like an actual wedding,'” Meyers recalled on Late Night Thursday evening. “And then a few months later, I got actual married, to my current, real, human wife. And then when we got married? Nothing. Just nothing.”
Will Forte has literally been waiting years for this moment.
Some background: In March, Seth Meyers revealed plans to introduce a new Late Night feature called “Second Chance Theatre.” The segment would highlight rejected SNL sketches, including a lost Jason Sudeikis vehicle called “Juggling Flyer” and Will Forte’s “Jennjamin Franklin.”
What, exactly, is Jennjamin Franklin? As Forte explained to Splitsider last year: “It’s this woman who is the spitting image of Benjamin Franklin, and this guy gets set up on this date with this woman, and she’s, like, this real sexual creature but looks exactly like Benjamin Franklin.”
Last night, in the very first installment of Second Chance Theatre, all of Forte’s weird colonial dreams finally came true. Feast your eyes on something that proved too weird for the show that brought us “Bird Bible”:
Weeks ago, Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler went to dinner together, as friends do. They split the bill, as friends do. And then they accidentally took each others’ similar-looking credit cards, as friends do. But when Meyers gave back Poehler’s credit card, she failed to return the favor and continued to spend money with his… as identity thieves do.
Tip: Don’t mix up your credit card with Amy Poehler’s. She will steal yours.
At least, that’s what happened to Poehler’s pal Seth Meyers when they accidentally switched cards after splitting a dinner bill. As Meyers explained on Late Night earlier this week, once he realized the mix-up, he made a plan with Poehler to messenger the cards to each other. Meyers followed through; Poehler did not. Instead, after receiving her credit card, she took a selfie with the two credit cards and a fan of cash to send to Meyers with the hashtag “#upperhand.” That crazy Amy!
Billionaire Donald Sterling made headlines last week when TMZ posted audio recordings of the Los Angeles Clippers owner making racist comments. Specifically, the audio captures Sterling telling his mistress that he doesn’t want her associating with black people in public and asking her not to bring “them” to his games.
Everyone from President Obama to Snoop Dogg have offered their two cents on the controversy — and on Monday night, it was late night’s turn. See what each host had to say about Sterling, including what kind of animal he resembles, below:
