Kevin Nealon on making it

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM - Actor and comedian Kevin Nealon knew he had made it in showbiz after one special television appearance.

"The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson,  as a stand-up comic that’s like passing your bar exam. Nothing surpassed that. I remember the whole routine. I could be talking to you and in my head I'd be going over my whole routine," said Nealon.

That five minute routine followed by an invitation from Carson to sit on the couch and be interviewed, changed it all.

"He also invited me home after that. Not many comics get that," joked Nealon.

The Bridgeport, Conn., native is returning to his comedic roots with performances this weekend at Caroline's Comedy Club and on Feb. 8 at the Paramount Theater.
