Staff Pick: Kevin Nealon at The Funny Bone

Patrick Swayze was handsome, Chris Farley oddly magnetic. Yet the highlight of their infamous dancing skit on “Saturday Night Live” was Kevin Nealon’s kind, contemplative judge. Forced to choose between the dancers, he said only, “I wish I could just flip a coin and be done with it … but we can’t. We’re Chippendales.”

That line could work only for a master of subtlety, an artisan of understatement. Nealon was it.

Resume peppered with movie and TV credits, he returns to stand-up for a national tour that includes four shows at the Funny Bone: 8 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
