Kevin Nealon Will Pump [Clap] You Up

With laughter


It's hard to believe Kevin Nealon hasn't been on Saturday Night Live for more than ten years. But now, the former "Subliminal Man" and Weekend Update anchor has a slew of Adam Sandler flicks to his name, a smoookin' part as a stoner accountant/business advisor on the Showtime hit (ha!) Weeds, fleshier jowls, an ever-receding hairline and a rekindled passion for taking the stand-up stage when his schedule allows. His humor's dry, absurdist and chock-full of wordplay; in other words, it's unique. Hear me now and believe me later — like when you catch the Emmy nominee headlining the West Port Funny Bone (614 West Port Plaza, Maryland Heights; 314-469-6692 or this weekend. Shows are at 8 and 10:30 p.m. on Friday and 7:30 and 10 p.m. on Saturday (September 15 and 16); tickets cost $20 to $25. You should go — after all, he's Kevin Nealon, and the fact that he's funny is news to no one.
