As the longest-running cast member in the history of "Saturday Night Live" Kevin Nealon clearly set himself apart from the other performers with his unique sense of humor, profound dry wit and likable demeanor. After nine seasons on SNL, Kevin left the show and starred in the Dreamworks prime time series "Champs" for ABC.
Kevin can be remembered for his well-known character: The Subliminal Man, Hans and Franz and Weekend Update Anchorman. Other favorite SNL characters of his include: Larry King, Sam Donaldson, Mr. No Depth Perception and Ganon PI. In 1988, Kevin was nominated for an Emmy Award as part of the SNL writing team.
Born and raised in Bridgeport, Connecticut Kevin devoted himself to art and sports and got his first taste of performing as a teenager in various garage bands. After graduating from Sacred Heart University with a degree in marketing, Kevin spent his time traveling throughout the United States and Europe. Eventually he settled in Los Angeles to what he refers to as "a career in part-time jobs" – working for a car leasing company, and a moving company, as well as serving as a department stare Santa Claus to name a few.
Kevin began his career in 1978 as a stand-up comedian while working as a bartender at the Improv in Hollywood. He readily made a audience roar with laughter and soon thereafter, made appearances on talk shows, commercials and feature films, including "All I Want For Christmas" with Lauren Bacall and "Roxanne" with Steve Martin.
Kevin currently resides in Lake Tahoe with his wife, Linda and six casts and is a committed vegetarian. He devotes a great deal of time to PETA and has adopted twelve farm animals at the Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, New York
