Kenan appears to be a Christian. We found multiple sources citing he was Christian but nothing pointing to any sources. Once source even sugggested that he was Hindu. He doesn’t appear to talk about his religion too much so this could be why there is so much speculation.

Thompson holds the record for the most number of celebrity impressions done by a “SNL” cast member. Currently this number stands as over a hundred. For his role on Fat Albert (2004), Kenan had to actually lose weight. He went on a weight loss program before shooting the film. This was due to the fact the he needed to wear a fat suit to play the role of Fat Albert. Once the filming was over he gained the weight back.
