By the time Kenan Thompson joined “SNL,” he had decades of experience performing professionally. He got his first acting job at age 10 in a commercial for “Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken.” At 14, Thompson landed his first movie role in 1994’s “D2: “The Mighty Ducks,” the second installment in the “Mighty Ducks” franchise. That led to his role on Nickelodeon’s variety show “All That,” where he played a wide range of eccentric characters. 

Even so, when he auditioned for “SNL” in his early 20s, it wasn’t an easy process and he didn’t find instant success. For a few years, he was told he looked too young to even try out. When he finally got his shot at 25, he felt completely out of his depth. “It was terrifying,” he told Vanity Fair. “I didn’t know how to engage the audience.”

Even though Thompson thought his audition was a disaster he wound up getting the job. Clearly, Lorne Michaels thought he was ready to join the “SNL” cast. But when he got there, even his years of experience in entertainment couldn’t guarantee a perfect performance every time. Early on, he found himself off his game once again during an embarrassing moment in dress rehearsal for a sketch called “Randy the Bellhop.”
