Get ready to laugh with Weeds and Saturday Night Live veteran Nealon as he performs an evening of all-new standup material.

Nealon has set himself apart from other performers and comics with his unique sense of humor, profound dry wit and likable demeanor.

In 1988, Nealon was nominated for an Emmy Award as part of the SNL writing team. Weeds, in its seventh season, has been nominated three times for a Golden Globe for Best Television Series Comedy or Musical and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

Nealon’s film credits include Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, Little Nicky, John Waters’ Cecil B. Demented and Roxanne.

His television career has encompassed the series Conspiracy Zone, Hiller and Diller and Champs.

Nealon is also a regular guest on talk shows, including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the Late Show with David Letterman.
