Seth Meyers




Sly Fox of Saturday Night Seth Meyers, 33, has remained one of the most consistently engaging members of the “Saturday Night Live” cast since joining the famous TV comedy troupe in 2001. This year he’s become SNL head writer and joined the illustrious Weekend Update desk, alongside blonde “brain-bo” Amy Poehler. He has two films in the works: “Spring Breakdown” — currently filming — and “Key Party,” which he is writing. Like Sarah Silverman, he’s from Bedford and went to high school in Manchester. He keeps strong ties to his home turf. He gave his $100,000 prize from a Celebrity Poker Showdown to the Boston-based Jimmy Fund, and when fans ask for tickets to SNL, his stock reply is, “I’m still working through my list of friends from West High.”

New Hampshire Magazine knows where "It" is at. Each November, we identify the state's most happening people and publish their names and profiles in our annual "It List."

So what defines an "It" Person?

How about buzz, panache, je ne sais quoi, currency,  a person whose time has come, a person of tomorrow, a timeless person, noteworthy, below the radar, in the news, in the know, hot, cool, high impact, slippery, a mover and shaker, a humble saint, a behind-the-scenes operator, a scenery chewer, an unsung hero, a hero who knows how to sing. 

It's a quality that's hard to define, but you know it when you see it.

Above is one member of the 2006 It List.
