Kevin Nealon Yes, You’re Pregnant But What about Me? Kevin Nealon is a man of (so) many (amazing) words. Saturday Night Live (SNL) Alum brought to life (your favorite characters) Subliminal Man and (better) half of the comedy duo Hanz and Franz.
After SNL, Kevin had (Award Worthy) Roles in television and film and now stars with Mary Louise-Parker in the Showtime Original Series Weeds.
Now, Kevin can add author to his list with an hysterical take on becoming a first time father at 53. In his book Yes, You’re Pregnant, But What about Me?, he talks about the stress of assembling a crib (use duct tape), diapers (you can’t reuse disposable ones), and his party-hungry neighbors that keep him awake far past his (9pm) bedtime.
HMC got to talk to him about his book, his son (Gable), and what people now bring him after he performs on stage.
What did you think you knew about being a father that you realized you didn’t know?
I thought I should prepare myself for sleepless nights and frustration. When they happened, I was ready for it. I’m not saying it wasn’t difficult or easy so that wasn’t hard.
Maybe the difficulty of choosing the strollers, I didn’t realize how hard that would be.
What about behavior problems?
Yes, behavior to do with the temper tantrums, but that’s only with my wife.
