We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Kevin Nealon

Friday Oct. 22-Saturday Oct. 23 @ Wiseguys West Valley City



Actor/comedian Kevin Nealon has been a fixture in the entertainment world since the late 1980s, yet he still seems to have the need to be perpetually busy. Though most people would be more than satisfied with the amount of work he gets, through popular shows like Weeds and Adam Sandler movies, Nealon still enjoys traveling around and performing stand-up. Whether it’s to benefit his various philanthropic interests or just for his own fun, he continues to book gigs at comedy clubs, which Nealon prefers to bigger theaters.

His comedy style is perfectly suited to smaller audiences. He loves to interact with the crowd—most often when he’s performing as “Mr. Subliminal”—always maintaining a harmless, jovial attitude throughout his show. Nealon is not out to shock or offend anyone. He is just a friendly guy who seems to be performing as much for his own enjoyment as everyone else’s. To quote one of his most famous Saturday Night Live sketches, he’s just here to “pump (clap) you up”!

Kevin Nealon @ Wiseguys Comedy Café, 2194 W. 3500 South, West Valley City, 801-463-2909, Oct. 22-23, 7:30 & 10 p.m., $25.
