Joshua Dylan "Josh" Meyers (born January 8, 1976) (// MY-ərs) is an American actor and comedian, known for being a cast member of the sketch comedy series Mad TV and playing Randy Pearson in the eighth and final season of That '70s Show. He is the younger brother of Late Night host Seth Meyers.
Early life and education
Meyers was born in Bedford, New Hampshire on January 8, 1976, the son of Hilary Claire (née Olson), a French teacher, and Laurence Meyers, Jr., who worked in finance. He attended Manchester High School West in Manchester, New Hampshire. He went on to graduate from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Meyers' paternal grandfather was Jewish; his other ancestry is Czech-Austrian (from his paternal grandmother), Swedish, English, and German.
Meyers officially joined the cast of Mad TV in 2002, as a featured performer for the eighth season. He would fill in the spot of the Spishak Spokesperson that David Herman and Pat Kilbane previously owned. Meyers was also known for his celebrity impersonations, including Anna Nicole Smith's son, Daniel, various members of 'N Sync, rapper Eminem, and actor Owen Wilson.
Meyers's appearances on Mad TV on Fox aired directly opposite his brother Seth's appearances on Saturday Night Live on NBC. This was referenced on a season 28 episode of Saturday Night Live in which Seth appears on Weekend Update to talk to his father and tells him to turn off Mad TV and pay attention to him.
Meyers has a supporting role in the 2008 film College Road Trip, and appeared alongside Pee-wee Herman in the 2010 stage show revival of Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway, TheThe Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway.
