Kevin Nealon talks Mr. Subliminal, Hans and Franz, getting offered pot and more


Hey, check this out: Kevin Nealon and Tim Meadows are both in Tampa Bay this weekend! Nealon is at the Club at Treasure Island on Friday (tickets are $35; click here for details), while Meadows is at Side Splitters Comedy Club through Sunday (tickets are $20-$25, click here). Here's hoping they can meet up in the middle -- it's been far too long since Ike Turner said, "I'm sorry, Kevin Nealon."

Nealon took the time to talk to our Stuck in the '80s pals recently, and while he didn't talk about that classic Weekend Update bit, he did discuss classic Saturday Night Live skits like Hans and Franz and Mr. Subliminal. He also discussed his more grown-up role on Weeds, and how it has led many of his fans to offer him free marijuana.

"Occasionally people offer me pot, and I explain that I don’t smoke pot," he said. "And they’re surprised, because I’m on that show. They think I’m a big pothead! I get a lot of letters from the hemp society and marijuana advocates. I’m not involved in that stuff. I’m just an actor playing this role. What we smoke on there is actually a honeyrose herb. I would think I’d be getting calls from the honeyrose herb advocates. It’s not as innocent as it sounds; we actually get it from the honeyrose herb cartel in Colombia."
