Can you spot "Saturday Night Live" star Seth Meyers in this crowd of Northeastern University Kappa Sigmas? Yes, he's the one in the middle -- the guy who looks like he's 35 years old (because he is). Bedford, N.H.-native Meyers headlined the frat's 7th Annual Comedy Night at Blackman Auditorium on Sunday, just one night after he appeared on "SNL"'s season premiere with host Megan Fox.

Meyers didn't go to Northeastern -- he attended Northwestern -- but he seemed right at home cracking jokes to the sold-out, Boston crowd about drunk eBay shopping and backstage antics at "SNL." Previous Kappa Sigma Comedy Night headliners include Jay Mohr, Sarah Silverman, and Bob Saget.

In other "SNL" news, executive producer Lorne Michaels has told The Washington Post that he won't be firing new cast member and Milton-native Jenny Slate for accidentally saying the F-word instead of the word "frickin'" on live television over the weekend. Michaels said to the Post, "The pain that Jenny is going through is, I'm sure, considerably worse than that experienced by anybody who saw it."
