You know Kevin Nealon, even if you don't think you do. Surrounded by bigger personalities like Dana Carvey and Mike Meyers, he flew largely under the radar during his nine-year tenure at Saturday Night Live. Since then, he's been criminally underused, typically playing small parts in big movies like Anger Management, Get Smart, and Just Go With It. But on Showtime's Weeds, he gets all the space he needs, and it's a joy to watch. As perpetually blazed accountant-turned-drifter Doug Wilson, he's one of the show's most consistently funny characters; even when the series began to fly off the rails into bizarre melodrama, Nealon's droll delivery saved it. His two-night stand-up stint at Tommy T's (5104 Hopyard Rd., Pleasanton) is sure to be equally engrossing. Friday, Apr. 8, 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.; Saturday, Apr. 9, at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. $25-$35, plus two-item minimum. 925-227-1800 or TommyTs.com
