  • A trained comedian, Nealon has performed his standup routines across the country, and earned fame as a sketch-player on Saturday Night Live for nearly ten years.
  • Nealon has over 70 film and television credits to his name.
  • Presently, he provides the voice for Glenn Martin DDS on Nick at Nite, and taped his first one-hour standup special Now Hear Me Out, which aired on Showtime.

As one of America’s most prominent comedians, Kevin Nealon is known as the “everyman’s funnyman.” He is an alumnus of the legendary, New York-based sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live, where he earned fame as the subliminal man and Franz of the mock bodybuilding duo Hanz and Franz.

Leaving SNL in 1995, Nealon went on to act in several films, including Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, Anger Management, Daddy Day Care, and Grandma’s Boy. He recently found fame with newer generations for his supporting turn as dope-smoking city councilman Doug Wilson on the Showtime comedy Weeds, which ran from 2005-2012. He has published a memoir entitled Yes, You’re Pregnant, But What About Me? and holds a degree in marketing from Sacred Heart University.

Nealon is predominantly known for his standup programs. In his recent Showtime special Now Hear Me Out, Nealon discusses phrases that people often say, yet hold no significant meaning. “What are you going to do?” is the phrase he uses to open up the discussion. He humorously brings up a scenario in which someone’s car is broken into. The owner looks at his vehicle and despondently says, “Well, what are you going to do?” Gee, maybe call the police? File an insurance claim? There’s lots one can do!

Moving on, he brings up the very phrase that gives his comedy special its title – “Now hear me out!” Nealon jokes that the phrase often precedes a scenario or discussion that isn’t going to be very good for the other person. The humorous example he uses involves one man telling another that he’s going to lower him into a well by his ankles and douse him in gasoline. When the “victim” objects, the man quickly says, “Now hear me out,” as though there’s some sort of prime objective to be accomplished.

Nealon also discusses a figure we all likely know… The man who answers his own questions. A person who says things like, “Do I like this theater?” only to immediately answer himself within a matter of seconds – “Yeah, I do. I do.” Further examples include, “Do I like this guy? No I don’t. Would I go there again? Yeah, I would.” It’s simple comedy, yet it hits home. Nealon embodies the common people we likely all know or have encountered at some point in our lives.
