Kevin Nealon -- A Benefit for Defeat the Label

Audiences will enjoy a special evening with comedian/actor Kevin Nealon, as he brings his standup show to the Flagstar Strand Theatre for the Performing Arts on Friday, June 2, at 8 p.m. Tickets on sale Thursday, May 11 at 10 a.m. Proceeds benefit Defeat the Label.

With his unique sense of humor, profound dry wit and likable demeanor, Kevin Nealon has established himself as one of the premier television, theatrical and stand-up comedians of his generation. As a cast member of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE (1986-1995), Kevin is most recognized for the characters he created, including; ‘The Subliminal Man,’ ‘Hans and Franz,’ and anchoring ‘Weekend Update.’

 

Nealon’s other memorable television roles include starring on Showtime’s Golden Globe-winning hit series, “Weeds.” Currently he stars on CBS’ “Man With A Plan” opposite Matt Le Blanc. Nealon also has two one-hour standup specials, “Now Hear Me Out” and most recently, “Whelmed, But Not Overly,” both now available on DVD and CD. Since making his film debut in the 1987 romantic comedy, “Roxanne,” with Steve Martin, Nealon has gone on to star in more than two dozen comedies, including “Happy Gilmore” and “The Wedding Singer,” both with Adam Sandler, “Anger Management” with Jack Nicholson, “Daddy Day Care” with Eddie Murphy, “Grandma’s Boy,” “Just Go With It” and most currently, “Blended,” with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. He has published a comedic memoir that chronicles his life and his experience with going through his wife’s pregnancy called, “Yes, You’re Pregnant, But What About Me?” and currently has a web series on AOL that he is co-producing with Ellen Degeneres called, ‘Laugh Lessons with Kevin Nealon’ which invites comedians to help teach little kids to be funny.
