As the weather turns colder and the video store shelves have grown bare of movies I haven’t seen, I have taken to introducing my boys to some of the older kids movies on the shelves.
On one recent lazy Sunday, we opted to watch the Nickelodeon classic Good Burger starring Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell as a couple of goofy guys left to work at the local burger joint. The duo had a proven track record on the hugely popular Nickelodeon shows All That and Kenan & Kel. The choice had my boys rolling with laughter and got me thinking about what had happened to one of the stars…. where is Kel Mitchell today?
While Castmate Kenan Thompson has had post Nickelodeon success as a permanent cat member of Saturday Night Live, Mitchell has taken a lower profile to his continued post-teen TV success.
You may have to look a little harder for Kel Mitchell’s credits, but he has had ongoing tv work following the end of Kenan & Kel. Currently you can find the former child star on the G4 channel playing a variety of characters on Attack of the Show. He has also made a couple attempts at finding a sitcom home – first on the UPN series One on One as recurring character on the fifth season and later on the BET series Take the Cake.
In addition to his professional success, Kel Mitchell has spent the past decade building his family. Mitchell was married to Tyisha Hampton for six years until their divorce in 2005. The couple have two children - Allure and Lyric.
