‘Saturday Night Live’ Star Kenan Thompson Dishes About ‘Weird’ Kanye with Andy Cohen [WATCH]


*Kenan Thompson dished about Kanye West, “Good Burger” and Star Jones during his visit with Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live on Thursday.

The “SNL” star says West was “off-the-ripper weird” when he was the musical guest on the sketch comedy show in September.

“Kanye was super far-off-the-ripper-type weirdness,” he confessed. “Like the ripper of weirdness was here, he was like way over there.”

When Andy Cohen asked Kenan if there was any celebrity who did not like an impression he did of them, the comedian got candid and put it out there, saying:  

“The most pissed off was probably Star Jones, just because I was doing it around a very happy time in her life,” he revealed. “We were kind of digging at the fact that she got somebody to sponsor her wedding, which is supposed to be a girl’s magical day. We just had to go digging.”

Kenan reunited with his “All That,” “Kenan & Kel” and “Good Burger” cp -star, Kel Mitchell, for a “Good Burger” revival on “The Tonight Show” a few years ago. So Andy wanted to know what’s up with a sequel?

“It’s in the higher powers’ hands,” he said “because we’ve both said that we’re down to do it,” Kenan said on behalf of himself and Kel.

Thompson thanked Dan Snyder and “The Tonight Show” for reuniting him with Mitchell.

“They had that idea to do the reunion,” Kenan said. “[Snyder] reached out to me and I called Kel and then we talked … and we were like, Yeah, I mean, we might as well do it.”

He went on to say, “It was nice to reconnect because it was like picking up right from where we left off, we worked so well together.” He added that the two have stayed in contact regularly since the reunion sketch, which you can watch below:
