Kenan moved to Atlanta, Georgia with his family, when he was nine months old, with his older brother named Kerwin, and younger sister named Feleecia. He was a very expressive and creative child, which prompted his mother to enroll him into acting classes at the age of five. Through his childhood, Kenan appeared in numerous local theatre productions, including “The Wiz” and “The Gingerbread Duck”. Growing up, he was a big fan of the TV show “The Price Is Right”, which had a significant effect on his future acting style.
Some of Kenan’s earliest roles were in children’s TV shows “Real News for Kids” and Nickelodeon’s comedy sketch “All That”. He made his film debut as Russ, in the 1994 Disney live action sports drama “D2: The Mighty Ducks”, directed by Sam Weisman, and which starred Emilio Estevez, Michael Tucker and Kathryn Erbe.

Kenan also holds the record for most celebrity impersonations performed on the show; he’s portrayed almost 130 celebrities, including Steve Harvey, Whoopie Goldberg and O. J. Simpson. For his work on the show, he’s been nominated for four Primetime Emmy Awards, winning once.
