“All That” produced its fair share of incredible talent throughout the years. Watching young stars like Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell and Drake Bell grow into the adult stars they have become is always such a heart-warming part of the TV experience.
What you might not know is that a few other mega stars were among the “All That” ranks either on or behind the scenes. Just a few years ago we knew them as talented kids occupying the big orange couch, or writing jokes backstage in preparation for center stage. Today, these stars are splitting sides, selling out venues and more.
It’s not that we might have missed Nick on “All That,” it’s just that since his “All That” days he’s been in so many movies, TV shows and songs that you might forget where you first saw him! Today, we know Nick Cannon for his roles in “Wild ‘N Out,” “America’s Got Talent,” “Drumline,” “Roll Bounce” and so much more.
Nick was one of those young talents that you knew had star power. We’re so happy that Nick’s star continues to shine brightly in Hollywood. Keep doing great things, Nick!
Even though he was only around for one season, it was clear to see the funny pouring out of him. Fluffy has always been a funny, sweet comedian that fans of all ages love. It’s incredible to see all the success he’s having, and it was great having him part of the “All That” family.
We know him now for his characters and comedy on Saturday Night Live, but Taran Killam had a long history on Nickelodeon far before hitting NBC’s live stage. Killam was a writer for season one of “All That” in 1994, after which he landed roles in The Amanda Show, Drake & Josh, MadTV, Scrubs, and How I Met Your Mother.
It’s little wonder that a comedian with talent spanning some of TV’s best comedies would have launched his career at “All That.” Even if he wrote for them for just one season, we dare say the sketch comedy chops he developed there have served him well and grown tremendously during his career on SNL and beyond.
Another behind-the-scenes mastermind has stayed mostly behind-the-scenes, but the works he’s behind are of awesome proportions. Neal Brennan, a writer on seasons two through four, moved from his gig on “All That” to writing and producing from one of the country’s most popular comedians, Dave Chappelle, on the Dave Chappelle Show.
More recently, Brennan has been focusing on his stand-up career, taking his writing skills to the stage. But that doesn’t mean he’ll be out of the movie and TV game for good: he’s been involved in various Funny or Die episodes and is a credited writer for the upcoming Whitney Cummings comedy “The Female Brain.”
“All That” is an American, live-action sketch comedy-variety show, which aired on Nickelodeon from 1994 to 2005, lasting ten seasons. “All That” was produced by Dan Schneider, and produced breakout stars including Kenan Thompson and Amanda Bynes. Dan Schneider is an American actor, TV and film actor, and producer.
