Kel Johari Rice Mitchell (born August 25, 1978 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American actor, comedian and rapper. He first became well-known for his role as a cast member on the Nickelodeon sketch comedy show All That. His character Ed became popular enough to be given a spin-off film, Good Burger. He also starred in Kenan & Kel with his All That co-star Kenan Thompson. The comic duo parted ways after that series' cancellation but reunited in 2015 for a sketch on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Mitchell's other roles include Invisible Boy in the cult comedy Mystery Men and Double G on Nickelodeon's Game Shakers.

Selected Filmography:


  • Attention Deficit Creator Disorder: For three years, he and Kenan were regulars on two Nickelodeon shows and also made Good Burger during the same time period.
  • Reports of My Death Were Greatly Exaggerated: In 2006, a rumor on MySpace stated that he had died. Mitchell was later quoted as saying, “It was kind of laughable, you know what I mean? It’s laughable, but at the same time, it’s a serious matter. It’s shocking to me that someone would sit there and say someone else died.”
  • What Could Have Been: He auditioned to be on Saturday Night Live but the producers decided to cast Kenan instead. He did eventually get to appear on the show in a sketch that reunited him with Kenan as part of a "gritty reboot" of Kenan & Kel.
