SNL Star and Comedian Tim Meadows to Perform at NWU
Long-time Saturday Night Live cast member and comedian Tim Meadows will perform live at Nebraska Wesleyan University on Wednesday, March 7.
Meadows’ performance is this year’s Big Event, which begins at 9 p.m. in O’Donnell Auditorium, located at 50th Street and Huntington Ave. Tickets are $20 for general admission, $10 for NWU faculty and staff, and free for NWU students.
After studying television and radio broadcasting at Wayne State University, Meadows began performing improvisational comedy at the Soup Kitchen Saloon. In 1991, Meadows landed a spot on Saturday Night Live and would go on to become a longtime cast member, appearing on the program until 2000.
Meadows often spoofed famous personalities including O.J. Simpson, Michael Jackson, Tiger Woods and Oprah Winfrey. He eventually developed the character “The Ladies Man,” a talk show host who believed himself to be the living definition of what females search for in a man. The sketch/character was adapted into a 2000 film, “The Ladies Man,” which was not well received by critics or fans but has become a cult classic on DVD and cable.
Meadows has appeared in other feature films, including Coneheads, It’s Pat, and Wayne’s World 2, all of which were based on popular SNL characters. His greatest post-SNL success to date, however, was a major role as a high school principal in Mean Girls, a film written by and co-starring fellow SNL cast member Tina Fey.
