From All That to SNL: Spotlight on Kenan Thompson!

It’s no surprise that people usually associate 90’s TV with Kenan Thompson.

Kenan Thompson’s been a fixture on our TVs for most of our lives. We first got to know him when he starred in over 100 episodes of All That— and yes, we still crack up when we remember Pierre Escargot, Baggin’ Saggin’ Barry and so many other classic characters he portrayed.

After All That, Kenan and his BFF Kel Mitchell went on to star in Kenan & Kel. Kenan and Kel were the perfect best buddy combo on TV— setting a generation of bromance goals in the process! Between All That, Kenan & Kel and the Good Burger movie, Kenan was a Nickelodeon fixure from 1994 to 2001! At the same time, he was racking up roles in childhood film favorites like D2: The Mighty Ducks and Heavyweights. Kenan was nonstop, and he’s never really slowed down.

Kenan said a sad goodbye to Kenan & Kel in 2001, and in 2003, Kenan joined the cast of Saturday Night Live as a featured player. He became the first cast member to perform on both a kids and adult sketch comedy show, and went on to break the record for most celebrity impressions in SNL history. Today, Kenan is in his 13th season on SNL, tying him with Seth Meyers as the second-longest running cast member on the show.

In addition to all his work on SNL, Kenan has featured on many TV shows and movies over the years, including Felicity, Barbershop 2: Back in Business, Snakes on a Plane, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a cameo as himself in iParty with Victorious and more! He recently delighted his fans by reuniting with his old friend Kel in a Good Burger sketch on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Kenan’s been making us belly laugh since we were kids, and we know he’ll be putting smiles on our kids faces, too.

Top 10 Bromance Traits Shared by Kenan & Kel

Kenan and Kel’s bond is the ultimate bromance. It shaped all our friendship goals while we were growing up. Their bromance spanned so many hilarious sketches on All That, Good Burger and we still love watching the guys of Kenan & Kel.

With a bromance so strong, we had to revisit some of the traits that we always wanted in our best bud:

You always have a blast together

No matter where you go, BFF’s know how to have a good time together.

You celebrate the good times together

Because who else would you rather celebrate with?

You’ve got each other’s backs…even when you don’t understand what’s going on

If you can’t tell who’s the “Kel” in your friendship, it might be you!

You tell each other the truth, even if it’s tough

It takes a real friend to admit they screwed up your tuna.

Y’all look great as a team

#Twinning all day.

Probably because you do your own thing

Let the others say what they need to say. You and your BFF have swag for days!

You’re always game for each other’s crazy schemes

BFF’s stick together, no matter what hats they have to wear.

And when you’re not together, things seem off

Being away from each other feels like PB without the J.

But when you get back together, it’s like nothing’s changed

You might be a little older, but nothing else has changed. Except for maybe Jimmy Fallon tagging along.

Because bros stick together
