Kel Mitchell Talks "Good Burger" Remake

November 16, 2017

American actor and stand-up comedian Kel Mitchell is involved in many endeavors these days.

The “Kenan & Kel” star is a parent in real-life and plays a hip hop mogul on Nickelodeon's “Game Shakers.” His character “Double G” has one of his songs illegally sampled by a pair of twelve-year-old girls.

Mitchell told Cheddar he’s happy to be back with Nickelodeon and that, as an avid hip hop fan, he enjoys the show.

“It’s a fun character,” he said. “He’s like a mixture between Kanye, 2 Chainz, and Diddy.”

But the show is not the only thing on Mitchell’s plate. He recently re-teamed with former co-star and SNL cast member Kenan Thompson for a “Good Burger” skit on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

He and Thomson worked on “Kenan & Kel” from 1996 to 2000 and on “All That” from 1994 to 2005. The latter program gave rise to the “Good Burger” sketch that eventually turned into a movie in 1997.

The pair remain really good friends, and Mitchell says they’d be down for a remake.

He says he watches Thompson’s SNL skits now and has a few favorite impersonations.

“I think he’s killing the LaVar Ball,” Mitchell said.
