"Stoned-Cold" Comedy

A good laugh can go a long way, especially when you're in the weeds and especially when you're watching Kevin Nealon on the epic HBO series that paints him as a stoned accountant and business advisor. But you don't have to get your Nealon fix by just watching the show; you can see him in person during a standup comedy show at the Fort Lauderdale Improv. Nealon sets himself apart from other comedians with his unique dry sense of humor and congenial spirit. Not only has he received critical acclaim for his role on Weeds but he's most notoriously known for his signature comedic acts on NBC's Saturday Night Live. As one of the longest-running cast members on SNL, with about nine years on the show, Nealon created some of its most memorable characters, including "The Subliminal Man" and "Hans and Franz." His role on Weeds has also contributed to the success of that show, which just recently completed its eighth and final season and has been honored at the 2006, 2007, and 2009 Golden Globes with nominations. He's a man on a mission to make you laugh with his dry wit and hopes to have you at the edge of your seat laughing out loud, just as he did in movies such as Just Go With It, Grandma's Boy, The Wedding Singer, and Happy Gilmore. The comedy show runs for two days and will take place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino's Improv, which is located at 5700 Seminole Way. You can see Nealon either Friday at 8 or 10:30 p.m. or Saturday at 7 or 9:45 p.m. Tickets cost $25 and can be purchased at improvftl.com. You must be 21 years old or older to watch the show, and there is a two-drink minimum purchase. Call 954-981-5653.
