He’ll always be best known for the decade he spent on Saturday Night Live, creating such characters as Mr. Subliminal, Franz and Mr. No Depth Perception, and serving as anchor of Weekend Update. But in the years since, Kevin Nealon has honed his standup act, while landing a supporting role as a middle-aged pothead on the cable series Weeds. ''I don’t really smoke, but people come to the show and afterward say 'Hey, this is good stuff! Come on, just you and me.' And I wonder if the actors from The Sopranos, when they go out to dinner, fans come up to them with a .38 and say 'Hey, you wanna go whack a few people tonight?'''
He’s also upset that you now have to take off a certain item of clothing in airport security, all because of the failed Shoe Bomber. ''Why couldn’t it have been the bra bomber?'' he muses. ''Now that would be great!'' 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713‑333‑8811 or visit www.improvhouston.com. $25.
