    I was reading Jay Mohr's book about his time on SNL (somebody on here recommended it) and he goes into detail about a 'long time cast member' and a wig incident. During their weekly pickup basketball game, this person's baseball cap came off, wig inside, to reveal a shiny dome up top. They proceeded to pick the cap up and walk off the court without uttering a word.

    Here's the list of cast members who were on the show at the same time, I wasn't sure if perhaps one of these guys male pattern baldness was common knowledge?

    Phil Hartman
    Rob Schneider
    Al Franken
    Chris Farley
    Norm Macdonald
    Michael McKean
    Tim Meadows
    Mike Meyers
    Kevin Nealon
    Adam Sandler
    David Spade

    Two other wig related trivia items from the book: (1) Chris Elliot wore a hairpiece which if you recall made it look like he was going bald...so it was a wig of a receding hairline worn by a completely bald man. (2) Rob Schneider asserts (to Jay) that it's common knowledge Steve Martin wears a wig, although Jay can neither prove/disprove during a skit when he gives Martin's hairline a stare-down

    Dunno who it was but Mike Myers jumps right off that list as the toupee wearer.

    All strike me as wig wearers.

    Had to be Kevin Nealon. It was pretty obvious back then.

    Watching most of those guys attempt to play basketball would have been funnier than the SNL sketches.

    My Wig-dar (and Gaydar) is tingling when I see Mike Myers.

    And David Spade is an obvious candidate too.

    This bullshit story from his Wikipedia confirms my suspicions of fake hair.

    Nealon, Hartman and Myers are all wig wearers.
