Kevin Nealon made a name for himself on "Saturday Night Live" as the deadpan anchor of "Weekend Update." His sarcastic commentary would usually end with a split second of silence and then a thunder of laughter as the audience processed what he'd said. He was also on the writing team for the show. Before SNL, he was a Sacred Heart University student. Friday, he returns to his alma mater for a benefit performance for the school's scholarship programs.
