Biography

Former child star-turned-actor/comedian, Kenan Thompson first came to national prominence as one of the cast members of the kiddie sketch comedy show, "All That" (Nickelodeon, 1994-2005 ). Unarguably one of the most talented of the lot, the Atlanta- born Thompson was frequently paired up in sketches with fellow cast member Kel Mitchell. Together, the two formed an informal comedy team known simply as "Kenan & Kel." As an adult, Thompson graduated to the big leagues by joining the cast of "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ) - the first regular cast member to be born after the show premiered.

Bonus Trivia

.

"Kenan has got a comedic instinct. You'd think he worked in vaudeville for forty years. It's like a seven year old who can play Mozart." --Dan Schneider, co-star of "Good Burger" and writer for "All That", "Kenan and Kel" and "Good Burger" quoted in DAILY NEWS June 26, 1997
