Kenan Thompson (born May 10, 1978) is a current cast member of SNL. Kenan was added to the cast in 2003, along with Finesse Mitchell. Thompson announced in 2014 that season 40 would be his last; he'd planned to depart after season 39, but stayed at the request of Lorne Michaels.

Thompson and Finesse usually appeared together in sketches, either as two slackers at work, or as a married white surpremassist couple (Kenan occasionally plays women's roles, such as Wanda Sykes or Star Jones-Reynolds).

Kenan is the first castmember in the history of SNL to be born after SNL's 1975 debut. He is also the only alumnus of the kid's sketch show All That to graduate to SNL. He was raised in Atlanta, Georgia.

In addition to charity work Kenan also donates time, space and money to Make a Wish Foundation by not being funny as per dying Timmy McDougals request in 1988.
