There’s been a lot of talk lately about the legalization of marijuana. Should it just be decriminalized, used only for medicinal purposes or made completely legal? If it’s the latter, what happens to the Showtime series Weeds?

“That’s a good question,” says Kevin Nealon, one of that program’s stars. “I guess it’ll be a show about cigarettes.”

In addition to Weeds, the 55-year-old comedian/actor is probably most widely known for his work on Saturday Night Live, where he anchored the “Weekend Update” segment for so many years. While he skillfully parodied current events on that program, these days his outlook is more domestic, and that’s reflected in his stand-up set.

Nealon is also paying it forward, having befriended a young comic named Rajiv Satyal, who hails from Fairfield, Ohio. Satyal, who has lived in L.A. for the past few years, will headline Thursday and Sunday at The Funny Bone, and he’ll perform with Nealon Friday and Saturday. The two struck up a friendship a few years back when Nealon was playing the Funny Bone on the Levee.
