Kel Mitchell        

Award-Winning Comedic Actor, Best Known for "Kenan & Kel," "Good Burger" and "All That"

Actor and comedian Kel Mitchell, with a new television series and two animated series roles premiering this year, has been a beloved household name for almost two decades. He’s been frequenting the big and small screen since his 1994 debut on hit Nickelodeon series “All That”. Following “All That”, Mitchell’s lovable personality and eccentric characters took off and he soared through the 90’s with a four-season run on Nick’s “Kenan & Kel”, Paramount’s “Good Burger”, Universal’s “Mystery Men” (Ben Stiller, William H. Macy), and guest appearances on ABC’s “Sister Sister” and WB’s “The Steve Harvey Show”. He currently is the voice of skateboarding germaphobe Jay-Jay on the Rob Dyrdek & NickToons cartoon series, “Wild Grinders” and the cool teen mechanic “Dutch” on the Disney XD cartoon series, “Motorcity”.

Mitchell grew up on the south side of Chicago and began his acting career at the age of 12 with the ETA Creative Arts Foundation. Mitchell wowed audiences with his on stage performances such as Kasimu & The Coconut Palm and Dirt. His outstanding performance in Eden at the historic Victory Gardens Theater caught the eye of a prominent talent agent. At the age of 14, he got the opportunity of a lifetime. He flew to Florida to be on the then new network for kids, Nickelodeon. He beat out thousands of other kids and was cast in what soon became a groundbreaking show, “All That”. He was an original cast member from 1994-1999. He followed with spin-off series “Kenan & Kel” from 1996-2000, as well as Paramount’s major motion picture “Good Burger”.

Mitchell was honored with a Cable Ace Award in 1997 for Best Actor in a comedy series for his work in the Nickelodeon series “Kenan and Kel” and also honored with a Kids Choice Award in 1999 for Best Actor in a comedy series for both Nickelodeon series “All That” and “Kenan and Kel”. Mitchell later earned two Daytime Emmy Award nominations for his voice work as the lovable “T-Bone” in the award winning PBS series and book series “Clifford the Big Red Dog” in 2001 and again in 2002.

He went on to shoot Universal’s “Mystery Men” (Ben Stiller, William H. Macy), guest appearances on ABC’s “Sister Sister” and WB’s “The Steve Harvey Show”, Universal Pictures’ “The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle” (Robert DiNero, Rene Russo), “Like Mike 2”, “”Honeydripper” (Danny Glover, Charles S. Dutton), and Cedric The Entertainer’s “Dance Fu”.

Voice work on animated series and films includes MGM’s “Pink Panther and Pals”, Warner Brothers & Scholastic’s “Clifford’s Really Big Movie”, Rob Dyrdek & NickToons cartoon series, “Wild Grinders” and Disney XD cartoon series “Motorcity”, Netflix’s “Veggie Tales”.

Having a genuine understanding of today’s youth and roots in kid’s television, Mitchell speaks to youth across the country encouraging them to follow their dreams, to walk by faith and not by sight and live a Godly lifestyle. Kel is involved in putting on and hosting uplifting concerts in inner cities teaming up with major Gospel and Christian music artist. Mitchell is also the spokesperson for “The Black College Expo” providing numerous scholarships for students through out the year. Mitchell and his wife Asia Lee-Mitchell were recently honored with an award from the “Carson Black Chambers of Commerce” for their work in the city of Compton, California, providing a safe program for kids to show off their creative talents in a dance variety live show created by the couple called, “The Back House Party”.

Hopeful in reducing bullying in schools, Mitchell has written and directed a faith-based film that both teachers and youth pastors use to teach their students about how to eliminate bullying by using the principles of forgiveness and unconditional love.

Mitchell also uses stand-up comedy as a tool to get closer his fan base. He does nation-wide comedy tours as well as the university circuit.

He appeared on season 28 of Dancing with the Stars.
