On Thursday, Saturday Night Live announced that Colin Jost will take a seat at the Weekend Update desk when Seth Meyers departs for his own late-night talk show next month. Jost is one of SNL's current head writers and an alumnus of the Harvard Lampoon, which introduced the world to Conan O’Brien, John Updike, B.J. Novak and others who went on to write for The Simpsons, Seinfeld, 30 Rock, Futurama and nearly every other funny TV show you can imagine.

Here are a few pieces Jost wrote for The New Yorker. If you’d like to see his comedy chops in action, here are a few videos of Jost performing standup:
