Kenan Thomson from SNL wants you to join him on stage this Sunday in NYC

Actor and comedian Kenan Thompson’s “Road to NYC” nationwide talent search for kid and adult comedians will culminate with a grand finale show at Times Square comedy hotspot Carolines on Broadway (1626 Broadway at 49th Street) on Sunday, May 6 with shows at 4:00 p.m. (kids) and 6:00 pm (adults).    The event is presented by Atlanta-based Simply C Productions, LLC.

Kenan Thompson’s “Road to NYC” launched in 2011 when Thompson and his friend, executive producer Cherie Chiles-Buchanan, invited young comedians to come to New York to spend time with Kenan at SNL and to perform at a comedy club in the city.  Since then, there have been comedy showcases in Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Miami.  

As part of the “Road to NYC” search, two youth winners and two adult winners will be attending SNL on May 5 (the kids will attend the dress rehearsal and the adults will attend the live show).   Thompson will have one-on-one meetings with all of the winners at the show.

The 4:00 p.m. kids show will feature a special performance by Instagram sensation Russell Horning, aka “The Backpack Kid,” best known for his SNL appearance with Katy Perry.

Kenan Thomson will host the 6:00 p.m. adult show that will feature special celebrity guests.

To purchase tickets to Kenan Thompson’s “Road to NYC” visit www.carolines.com.  For more information, call 212.757.4100.   Ticket price includes a special VIP reception with complimentary food and drinks with celebrity guests.

“I’m so thrilled that we have engaged so many talented performers at our various events across the country!” Thompson said.  “We’ve found some great comedians during our search and I can’t wait to share in their excitement of performing in New York City for the very first time!”

Kenan Thompson is in his 15th season on “Saturday Night Live,” making him the show’s longest-running cast member.

Thompson has made numerous contributions to the show with his slew of hilarious impressions that include Rev. Al Sharpton, Charles Barkley, Steve Harvey and David Ortiz, and by playing memorable characters such as D.J. Dynasty Handbag, the scathingly fierce co-host of “Deep House Dish,” boisterous second wife Virginiaca Hastings and “Weekend Update” correspondent Jean K. Jean.

Thompson 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?” In 2017 Thompson received an Emmy nomination for co-writing “Last Christmas” from the popular “Jingle Barack” sketch.

A native of Atlanta, Thompson made his television debut as a member of Nickelodeon’s all-kid sketch comedy series “All That.” He and his partner Kel Mitchell debuted on a spin-off show, “Kenan and Kel,” in 1996. Thompson also had a recurring role on the WB’s “Felicity.”

Thompson showcased his voice talents as Greedy Smurf in the animated films “The Smurfs” and “The Smurfs 2.” His past projects include starring opposite Samuel L. Jackson in “Snakes on a Plane,” “Wieners” and “The Magic of Belle Isle” with Morgan Freeman. Thompson has also lent his voice to the animated comedy “Space Chimps,” the television series “Sit Down, Shut Up” and the Kobe Bryant/LeBron James Nike puppet campaign during the 2009 NBA Playoffs. Other feature film credits include “Fat Albert,” “D2: The Mighty Ducks,” “Good Burger,” “The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle,” “Brother Nature, ” “Heavyweights,” “My Boss’s Daughter,” “Barbershop 2,” “Going in Style ” and “They Came Together.” He was the voice of Austin “Impresario” Sullivan in the Hulu animated series “The Awesomes” and Riff in the film “Rock Dog.”

Thompson lives in Florida and New York City with his wife and daughter.
