Kenan Thompson is entering his ninth season on "Saturday Night Live."
Thompson has made numerous contributions to the show with his catalog of hilarious impressions that include Bill Cosby, Rev. Al Sharpton, Charles Barkley, Grady Wilson, and Whoopi Goldberg, and by playing memorable characters such as DJ Dynasty Handbag, the scathingly fierce co-host of "Deep House Dish," boisterous second wife "Virginica Hastings," and Weekend Update correspondent "Jean K. Jean." Thompson has most recently garnered praise from audiences for playing characters Lorenzo McIntosh, a convict who uses "scare tactics" with delinquents, and D'Andre Cole, the disruptive singing talk show host on the wildly popular sketch, "What Up With That."
