Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

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 a winning role on Showtime's dark comedy series "Weeds" (Showtime, 2003-2012), playing a client-turned-cohort to a suburban pot dealing mom. 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.
