At 10 seasons, Tim Meadows’ run on Saturday Night Live was one of the longest of any cast member. Still, he’s not often recognized by the general public. “People think I’m Don Cheadle,” he tells an audience. “I get that a lot, especially from white people. ‘Hey, Don Cheadle, I loved Iron Man 2!’ Black people see me they’re like, ‘Hey, I don’t know who you are.’” Meadows’ career stretches back to the mid-’80s, when he first started doing improv and standup in his hometown, Detroit. “I grew up in a rough part of Detroit,” he says. “It’s called Detroit.” He’ll be onstage at Joke Joint for the comedy club’s final weekend. The venue’s last show will feature local favorite Josh Blue on Sunday night.
