Nick Cannon reunites with Kel Mitchell on his nationally syndicated daytime talk show Nick Cannon. The two chat about old times on Nickelodeon and how they have both blossomed into loving fathers and flourishing businessmen.
Cannon shares how Mitchell and his co-star Kenan Thompson from The Kenan and Kel Show gave him his first shot in the entertainment business at 16 years old.
“You and Kenan gave me the opportunity to write episodes,” Cannon expresses to Kel on the show. “I was the audience warm-up. At 16 I would drive up in my mama’s old car. Kel would let me sleep in his apartment sometimes. You and Keanan just opened your doors to me and really saw me as family. If I haven’t said thank you enough. I say it again.”
