Comedian Seth Meyers to perform at Bedford High School

The Bedford Education Foundation will hold its BEF Comedy Night, featuring Bedford native Seth Meyers, at 8 p.m. Friday, June 1, at the Bedford High School auditorium.

Meyers, who recently performed in Boston, was born in Bedford and is a graduate of West High School in Manchester. He is an 11-year veteran of “Saturday Night Live” and the head writer for the show and sole anchor of “Weekend Update.” In addition, Meyers also hosted the ESPY awards on ESPN and was the speaker at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in 2011.

While Meyers lives in New York City, his parents live in Bedford. His mother, Hilary Meyers, a French teacher at Lurgio Middle School, will retire from teaching at the end of the school year.

The Bedford Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization with a mission to support academic excellence in the Bedford public school system by raising and providing funds for the benefit of Bedford students. Since 2007, the BEF has awarded almost $80,000 worth of grant funding to Bedford educators. For more information on BEF, visit
