Kevin Nealon

Best known as a long-running cast member of "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ) and the show's "Weekend Update" anchor for three seasons, actor, comedian and writer Kevin Nealon got his start working the trenches of the L.A. stand-up comedy scene and was fortunate enough to land on "SNL" at the start of one of its most revered eras - one that included fellow Not-Ready-for-Primetime-Players like Phil Hartman, Jon Lovitz, Jan Hooks and Dana Carvey. But after nearly a decade in the show's acclaimed ensemble cast, Nealon's career seemed to lack direction, unlike many of his co-stars who left "SNL" for greener Hollywood pastures. Following several failed sitcom attempts and seemingly endless cameos in teenage mall comedies, Nealon finally came into his own with winning roles on Showtime's dark comedy series "Weeds" (Showtime, 2003-2012), playing a client-turned-cohort to a suburban pot dealing mom, and the antic older brother on Matt LeBlanc's family comedy "Man With A Plan" (CBS 2016- ). Having established himself as a dependable supporting player and stand-up comedian in his own right, Nealon had largely moved beyond his notoriety as merely an "SNL" alumni.
