In The Weeds

I'm worried about Kevin Nealon. Not because he smokes too much pot--I mean, Weeds is just a TV show, and there's no way a cool, smart, hilarious, handsome famous person would ever do something heinous and illegal like smoke pot in real life, right? Right. No, my concern is this: On Kevin Nealon's official Web site promoting his upcoming comedy tour and DVD, Now Hear Me Out!, he is billed as “"one of your favorite stars of Weeds." They wouldn't let me major in public relations because I have a soul, so I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that now is not the time to be "one of" anyone's favorite anything. Are you listening to me, Kevin Nealon? You're on a national comedy tour! You're on an incredibly popular TV show! You used to be on Saturday Night Live! No one is going to fault you for claiming to be THE favorite star of Weeds. If you can't be hyperbolic in your own promotional materials, when can you be? So allow me: Hilarious comedy funnygod Kevin Nealon is coming to a Lakewood Theater, 1825 Abrams Parkway, near you! His 20-year career of funny can only begin to be comprehended in his gut-decimating performance at 8 p.m. this Friday. Tickets are a measly $29 to $39. Visit
