That quick, raw wit has kept him on top, well after hanging up the Franz bodysuit. Nealon is now one of the most versatile television, theatrical and stand-up comedians of his generation. He’s starred in a number of classic comedy films — from Adam Sandler’s The Wedding Singer to the cult favorite Grandma’s Boy — and can now be found in reruns on the smaller screen in the Golden Globe-winning series Weeds. He’s also recently taping his first one-hour special Now Hear Me Out, which is set to air on Showtime.
