Kenan Thompson is one of a small handful of entertainment figures who are comforting to me because they have been present in a super positive way for literally my entire conscious life. Him and Homer Simpson (Castalanetta), really. Maybe They Might Be Giants. They've just always been with me. They've never NOT been there to help me laugh through the pain.

If you ever read this Kenan man... thanks. That... is what's up with that.

Kenan Thompson makes Will Smith look like Malcolm X .

Of all the cast members leaving SNL, why was Keenan not one of them?

He didn't rescind the ban. He was never banned in the first place.

"Do you not know what a ban is?"

"I was thinking he was just gonna go, like, a fake move and just stop at the f, you know what I mean?" Thompson told Fallon, demonstrating by making an f sound of his own. "But he went full train at it, because I guess he's a Method kind of guy."

It's not about Method acting. It's about flow. If you don't carry on speaking until being cut off then there's a sharp cutoff followed by an obvious, unnatural pause while you wait for the other actor to deliver their line.

Not a whole lot of work for a hefty paycheck? Not a lot of comedians can't go on to have successful movie/TV careers

Kenan Thompson's not going to say anything about Cosby, because Kenan Thompson loves to work

That's exactly it.  Keenan is the new Lorne.  Expect the 50th SNL anniversary to be the big switch.

Dude's been doing live sketch comedy on television for 28 years (no, really - All That first aired in 1994). There aren't many people outside of Lorne Michaels who have that kind of experience.

But when Jackson let it slip again, that's when Thompson began to worry. "But then he doubled down and said it again, and I was like, 'Yo, my man, we gotta pay for those,'" Thompson said.

SNL had a SwearJar before Fark?

You'd think for being on television so long he'd come up with a new facial expression besides bemsed, detached dope.

That rumor's been around for at least a year, so it must be true.

Good for him.

I still don't think it was a smart decision. Was it?

He doesn't want to live off his wife?

He also said something like, "It's some bullshiat!"
