EPISODE 24

Comedian Kevin Nealon (SNL, Weeds) wishes he had wider aspirations, but the thrill of the comedy scene was too invigorating to pass up. After Dana Carvey helped him get on SNL, Kevin has maintained a healthy career on screen and a healthy lifestyle off screen. Find out about Kevin's serial killer demeanor, his initial disdain for activists, Garry Shandling's uninvited monk, and a near-death experience on a morning hike.

 

LESSONS FROM KEVIN:

1. Find time to meditate.

2. Do your passion and go into it with nothing to lose.

3. Half the battle is showing up.
