SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE veteran, Kevin Nealon has captured the hearts of millions with his dry wit and amicable personality. With over 35 years of stand-up under his belt, he continues to delight live audiences with fresh comedy and a slightly twisted way of looking at the world.
At nine seasons, Nealon is one of the longest running SNL cast members. He was part of a renaissance for the program, working alongside Dana Carvey, Mike Meyers, Chris Rock, Phil Hartman, and Chris Farley. Nealon hosted Weekend Update and brought several memorable characters to the screen including Mr. Subliminal, Franz of the Hans and Franz duo, and Mr. No Depth Perception.
Nealon has also enjoyed a successful film career, appearing in several of Adam Sandler’s earlier movies like Happy Gilmore and Anger Management. In 2008, he joined the cast of the critically acclaimed hit series WEEDS as stoned accountant, Doug Wilson, a role he interpreted for 8 seasons until the show’s conclusion. Most recently he can be seen in the reoccurring role of Don Burns on the CBS sitcom Man with a Plan.
In addition to his passion for making others laugh, Nealon is dedicated to supporting several causes such as animal rescue and protection, the promotion of natural medicine, and aiding the homeless population of Los Angeles.
With his unique sense of humor, profound dry wit and likeable demeanor, Kevin Nealon has established himself as one of the premiere television, theatrical and stand-up comedians of his generation.
As a cast member of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE (1986-1995), Kevin is most recognized for the characters he created, including; ‘The Subliminal Man,’ ‘Hans and Franz,’ and anchoring ‘Weekend Update.’
Kevin appeared on Showtime’s, Golden Globe winning hit series, WEEDS. He also provided the voice for Glenn Martin DDS on Nick at Nite. Kevin also taped his first one-hour stand up special, Now Hear Me Out, which is aired on Showtime and is also available on DVD.
Nealon, who made his film debut in the 1987 romantic comedy, Roxanne, with Steve Martin, has gone on to star in over two dozen comedies, including Happy Gilmore and The Wedding Singer, both with Adam Sandler, Anger Management with Jack Nicholson, Daddy Day Care with Eddie Murphy, Grandma’s Boy, and 2011′s Just Go With It, with Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman.
He published a comedic memoir that chronicles his life and his experience with going through his wife’s pregnancy called, Yes, You’re Pregnant, But What About Me?
Raised in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Nealon has a degree in Marketing from Sacred Heart University and currently resides in Los Angeles.
Kevin Nealon bends the imagination and cracks up the audience with his unconventional perspective on his new electric car, taking risks in life, and facing his fear of chimpanzees. To clarify, he’s not afraid of “cute little chimpanzees,” but rather the larger ones that have the strength of “four grown men,” though Nealon does raise legitimate concern about how that number was calculated.
“They must have done a study at one point,” he ponders before going on to comically narrate a scenario in which scientists usher various quantities of men into a cage with a chimpanzee for the purpose of seeing how many are needed to take down the chimpanzee. “It cost six lives that study, but it was worth it,” Nealon remarks. “At least they got their answer. It’s four.”
