Nealon’s extensive television credits include the CBS sitcom "Man With a Plan," in which he starred alongside Matt LeBlanc; Showtime’s "Weeds," which ran for eight seasons and was honored at the 2006, 2007 and 2009 Golden Globes with nominations for “Best Television Series Comedy or Musical.” In 2007 and 2009, "Weeds" was nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Award for “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.” Additional television roles include two critically acclaimed stand-up specials for Showtime; and a number of appearances on "Hot In Cleveland," "Franklin & Bash," "Monk," "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Still Standing."

As one of the longest running cast members on NBC’s "Saturday Night Live" (1986-1995), Nealon created some of the show’s most memorable characters, including ‘The Subliminal Man’ and ‘Hans and Franz.’ Nealon’s recurring role as an anchor on ‘Weekend Update’ helped make the sketch a show staple. In 1988, he earned an Emmy nomination as part of the SNL writing team.

In 2008, Nealon released his first book, "Yes, You’re Pregnant, But What About Me?" -- a comical look at the male perspective of pregnancy.

Currently, Kevin resides in Los Angeles with his wife and son.
