    Missing Kenan and Kel
  • A great actor but a comedian...

    Kenan Thompson,
    Was one of the first and one of the legnedary peole to come off the show ALL THAT.He is best know for his work on Nickelodeon in the 90's But left to work on his career.He has starred in some great to good films such as Fat Albert Snakes on a Plane.In 2004 he joined the cast of SNL.His legendary work on ALL THAT didnt seem to help him.All in all he is one of the few to come off Nickand make it big.And i can see him doing great things in the Near Future.But he justs needs to help SNL out.

    I love Kenan. He's so funny. I grew up watching him. I loved him in All That, Kenan and Kel, Heavyweights, and The Mighty Ducks. Also Goodburger. I wish I could see him in All That and Kenan and Kel again.
  • I used to adore Kenan in my younger days.

    When I was little, Kenan was one of my biggest role models. I used to never stop watching him on shows such as All That and Kenan & Kel. He was quite funny on films too like The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle and Goodburger: The Movie.
    Now that I am older I don't really like him as much but he is still one of my favourite comedic actors.
    Overall, good comedic actor.

    I remember the good ol' mid-90's I was 10 years old and coming from the family I come from I used to block it all out with TV, back then it was mainly Nickloden that I watched. And my most faveriot was Snick, Saturday night nick! All the coolest shows: All that, Kenon & Kell, secret world of Alex meck ETC. Kenon Thompson use to make me laugh out load! He was so funny and so goofy no wonder after only two seasons on All That, Nick gave him and co-star Kel Mitchel there very own show: The Kenon & Kel Show.
    Now its ten years later and Now I sometimes try to watch All that and it sucks, Maybe its because I'm older now that I don't like it...or maybe its because classic actors like: Kenon Thompson, Kel Mitchel, Amanda Bynes only come around once in a decade. Kenon Now is doing SNL {the only reason why I still watch SNL} and I've seen him here and there in movies but I really think that Hollywood is not giving him a break. He should be a mega-star by now! Someone, Please give him a show!!! His so damn funny!
  • Good actor!!!

    He may be a little crazy at times but other then that his really good. I think he should get back in Kenan and Kal though that was where he was the best altough he is really good on Saturday Night Live. I think he was also really good in All That.
  • Kenan Thompson

    He is one of the best comedians around (Him and Kel Mitchell). They were funny in their show Kenan and Kel. I wish their show hadn't ended because it was so funny. I also seen him in one film Kenan and Kel Good Burger. He and Kel were good in that.
  • One of the best rising stars of this generation.

    One word to describe Kenan Thompson is talented. Another is funny. Kenan is one of best rising stars. He's been in various movies, Love Don't Cost A Thing, Barbershop 2, and Fat Albert were all pretty good films. Most important though is he was one of the funniest cast members on All That.

    I first saw Kenan on All That. He was my favorite cast member because he was the one who always made me laugh. He played several rememberable roles such as Piere Es Cargo and Superdude was my favorites. He and Kel made a great duo. The two did various roles together also.

    After All That, Kenan and Kel got their own show. 'The Kenan and Kel' show was funny. Even though Kel was the comedy-relief, I felt Kenan was funny himself. I'd toon in ever Saturday night just to watch the two.

    Now Kenan is part of the Saturday Night Live cast. I don't watch that show vary often however.

    I've seen Kenan in a number of movies lately. My favorites though was Barbershop 2 wherehe played Kenard, the annoying barber, and Fat Albert, where he played everyone's beloved Fat Albert.

    Kenan has been making a name for himself. I really hope he continues his acting career. He's talented enough to be one of the greatest.
