College Park Comedy
For one night in November, College Park Center transformed into an oversized comedy club. As part of the Maverick Speakers Series, Saturday Night Live star Seth Meyers entertained a sold-out crowd with an hour-long stand-up routine. “I hope Texas doesn’t secede from the union,” he joked. “I wouldn’t want to look back on Friday Night Lights as a foreign film.” Meyers, who is in his sixth season as head writer and 11th as a cast member for SNL, also answered about a dozen questions from the audience. His appearance capped off Homecoming week and the dedication of the College Park District, which took place earlier that evening.
