On the Radar: Kevin Nealon at the Tampa Improv this weekend

The affable actor-comedian known for his dry wit and modest persona makes an appearance in hectic Ybor.

Kevin Nealon first got attention back in the ’80s as a cast member of Saturday Night Live. His recurring role as Mr. Subliminal provided hilariously out-loud subtext to weekly news blurbs, but his most recent stint on Weeds, as Nancy Botwin’s stoned and addled accountant, Doug Wilson, is definitely his best gig yet. Brandishing quotable lines — like “Don't look at me; I'm fucked up on corn bread” – the role has earned Nealon a Screen Actors Guild award and other accolades. To get a taste of Nealon live, watch the hour-long stand up special, Kevin Nealon: Now Hear Me Out!, which first aired on Showtime in September. His recent book, Yes, You're Pregnant But What About Me?, offers a comical male point of view of pregnancy, and one of his recent big-screen appearances include the Adam Sandler comedy You Don't Mess with the Zohan. Fri.-Sat., Nov. 12-13, with show times 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Fri and, 7:30 and 10 p.m. Sat.; the Tampa Improv, 1600 E. Eighth Ave., Ybor City. $25.For more information, call 813-864-4000 or visit improvtampa.com.
