What unites two people who love two different shows? Kenan Thompson. But who is Kenan Thompson? More importantly, what’s his net worth?
The American born actor-comedian was one of the most popular teenage stars in the country at that time. His humor and acting skills are widely appreciated by audiences seeking rib-tickling performances.

Aged 39, Kenan Thompson was born in Atlanta, Georgia on the 10th of May 1978. His acting career started at a very early age. All that and Kenan & Kel. These two shows were his ‘breakout’ shows. From there on, as an actor his fame and reputation only further enhanced. By then, he had become an icon for teenagers across the country. His next big break was the film industry. While still pursuing an education, he began filming for D2: The Mighty Ducks. Since 1994, he has worked in more than 20 movies and is presently still working on a couple of new releases. His biggest break, career wise was in 2003 when he joined the cast of the famous TV show, Saturday Night Live.
In his nearly 25 year long career, Kenan has performed multiple roles in various TV shows and movies. He began acting at a very young age. The pros of this were definitely seen in his latter years. He had experience and maturity which a lot of actors his age back then lacked. However, because of his relatively early success, throughout his professional career he has constantly been under the radar to perform.
