The SNL head writer and comedian performed his own material, as well as some SNL favorites, in Goldstein Auditorium on Wednesday night.

A sold-out Goldstein Auditorium welcomed Saturday Night Live head writer Seth Meyers with uproarious applause on Wednesday night.

The laughs started immediately when he “mistakenly” greeted the crowd as Indiana University, Syracuse’s latest basketball rivalry in Sweet 16 round of the NCAA tournament. Meyers then gave shout-outs to each class, spending extra time with the juniors, calling them “the dicks of every college campus.” Although he successfully insulted a portion of the audience, he was off to a great start.

Review: Awkward chemistry and not enough from the star himself sinks Andy Samberg's sold-out campus show.Review: Awkward chemistry and not enough from the star himself sinks Andy Samberg's sold-out campus show.

Andy Samberg has put his d--- in a box, jizzed in his pants, and cavorted with a black, transgendered version of Reba McEntire.

What a mensch!

So University Union and Hillel had a stroke of genius to ask the Saturday Night Live comedian to come to Syracuse University Wednesday night.

Most college students revere the man linked to SNL’s often hilarious Digital Shorts that have celebrities such as Justin Timberlake, Natalie Portman and Rihanna in unimaginable situations.
