Kevin Nealon, the cast member on "Saturday Night Live" from 1986 to 1995 and character on the Showtime series “Weeds” is 59 years old (!) but still touring clubs around the country as he develops a TV pilot with his wife.
In a phone interview, Nealon (known as one-half of “Hans and Franz,” Subliminal Man, Mr. No Depth Perception, and the anchor of “Weekend Update” when he was on “SNL”) said that his potential show will, like “Weeds,” not have a laugh track, though, like “Weeds,” it could have a “munchie track.”
Since departing “SNL,” The Connecticut native and California resident has been busy over the last 15 years, having written a book about having a wife who is pregnant called Yes, You’re Pregnant, But What About Me? and his advice to expectant father is, “You’re not alone.”
He said he is considering writing another book as he continues to perform stand-up, hoping never to draw hecklers, though Nealon said that when he does encounter them, he does the same thing he does at the dinner table when he can’t get a word in edgewise: “I start speaking very softly.”
Well done, Subliminal Man.
