I never found the guy to be anything special. In fact, Meadows is a classic example of an average SNL star. A person that although is part of the show his name would hardly come up in conversation (unlike Chris Farley, Mike Myers, Phil Hartman).
Looking at his post SNL career it looks mediocre at best. They did a movie about his "Ladies Man" character from SNL the movie failed miserable. His other movies are all forgetabble. He is not Eddie Murphy or anything like that. Ultimately, I find him to be a very forgettable personality and one of the more below average performers on SNL.
