BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

One of the most popular Saturday Night Live players will bring his stand-up routine to Bethlehem this summer.

Seth Meyers is best known for his role as lead writer on the late night comedy show, but has become a household name for his amusing parodies and impersonations.

He's in his fifth season hosting the hit segment, "Weekend Update," and his star is rising.

NBC announced Sunday that Meyers will replace Jimmy Fallon as host of "Late Night" as Fallon moves up an hour to take over the "Tonight Show." The moves are expected to take place next February.

In the meantime, Meyers will perform at the Sands Bethlehem Events Center on Friday, July 12 at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the show range from $35 to $45 and go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

Tickets can be obtained at sandseventcenter.com, the Event Center box office, ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

Sands will also host two other comedy acts this summer:

Longtime NBC "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno will bring his encore show to the Sands on Sunday, August 11 at 8 p.m.

Tickets for Leno's show range from $65 to $95 and go on sale Friday, May 17.

The Impractical Jokers -- four lifelong friends -- have made their mark on the comedy scene by embarrassing each other by staging public, mortifying challenges.

Their interactive comedy show comes to the Sands on Wednesday, July 31 at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the Leno and Impractical Jokers are available at the same outlets as for Meyers' show.
