Seth Meyers: You Can Do Crazy Stuff for Late Night Talk Shows!
Here’s what the 40-year-old upcoming Late Night host had to share with the mag:
On him and his staff’s writing routine: “Then I’ll go upstairs and start writing on something. Then I’ll pop down here and look at the next pass of those bits. Then I’ll spend the night sleeping upstairs. Then I’ll wake up and come down here. It’s like having two families. I feel like Ray Liotta at the end of Goodfellas, with the helicopter following me.”
On taking over the famous slot: “I like that everyone before me has established this as a place to try things out. It’s 12:35 at night. You can do crazy stuff.”
Amy Poehler, on Seth’s abilities: “[Seth] enjoys bringing the best out of people. Maybe it’s his improv training, but he really knows how to make other people look good.”
Seth‘s Late Night show is set to debut on February 24.
