STATELINE, Nev. (March 29, 2007) - Kevin Nealon\'s golf game isn\'t good, and that\'s not news to him.
The Saturday Night Live alum who punctuated his Weekend Update reports with \"That\'s news to me\" and did his best to \"pump you up\" as over-muscled bodybuilder Franz (a hilarious precursor to today\'s steroid-addled athletes) tells it straight.
Even if he doesn\'t always hit it that way
Nealon is a semi-regular in the celebrity golf world. TravelGolf.com caught up to him in Lake Tahoe, competing in a field that included comedians Ray Romano, Anthony Anderson and John O\'Hurley (J. Peterman from Seinfeld).
Romano is so golf-obsessed HBO did a documentary about how crazed he got at Pebble Beach; his comedy colleague is decidedly more relaxed. At a celebrity auction, Nealon did shtick for the crowd, coming out on a Lance Armstrong bike sans pedals and claiming to have ridden it all the way around Lake Tahoe.
Even up on the stage, piloting a pedal-less bike in his black dress pants, Nealon comes across as more of an average guy with an interesting job than some manic comic.
He seems almost cast against type as a pot-smoking politician in Showtime\'s quirky Weeds. Nealon is about the last comedian you\'d expect to be perpetually high, but he plays the role well.
Whether he\'s performing or answering questions, there\'s a bit more to Nealon beneath the placid surface than you might expect. He will not pretend that comedians are athletes or forget Dan Quayle\'s dis\' of Murphy Brown. Here\'s Kevin Nealon unplugged.
