Nealon was born in St. Louis, Missouri, the son of Kathleen M. (née Kimball) and Emmett F. Nealon, an aircraft company executive. A few months after he was born, the family moved to Bridgeport, Connecticut. He was raised Catholic, and graduated from St. Joseph High School in Trumbull, Connecticut, in 1971. Nealon graduated with a bachelor's degree in marketing from Sacred Heart University (and worked in a variety of part-time jobs while doing stand-up comedy).
Nealon debuted on network television doing a stand-up routine for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in 1984. On the September 24, 1985 nighttime syndicated episode of Sale of the Century, Nealon can be seen onstage congratulating his friend Tim Holleran on winning more than $150,000 in cash and prizes. In 1986, Saturday Night Live recruited his friend Dana Carvey, and Carvey in turn recommended Nealon. Both joined the cast that year, and Nealon became a full-time performer in the 1987-1988 season, and remained for nine seasons...
