If, like the rest of us, you won’t be in LA next month when Seth Meyers hosts the 75th Golden Globe Awards, don’t fret. The late-night host is performing two benefit shows in his native New Hampshire in February.
The former “Saturday Night Live” cast member, whose teen years were spent roaming the not-so-mean streets of Bedford, N.H., is doing two fund-raisers Feb. 10 at Concord’s Capitol Center for the Arts to benefit Court Appointed Special Advocates of New Hampshire and the Granite State Children’s Alliance.
We’re told the 7 p.m. show is pretty much sold out, but there are tickets available for the 9:30 p.m. set. Tickets are $58, $78, and $125, and all proceeds will be split between CASA of N.H. and the Granite State Children’s Alliance.
We don’t know what the “Late Night” host will be talking about, but it’s a good bet he’ll make a joke or two at President Trump’s expense. Meyers has made no secret of his antipathy for the current occupant of the White House, calling the just-approved tax cut “nothing less than a brazen heist of the country.”
“You’re by far our most checked-out president,” Meyers said on Wednesday’s show. “I mean, James Garfield worked harder than you after he was assassinated. You watch more TV than a sixth-grader at home with the flu.”
