Stephen: Kenan Thompson reveals reason he’s still on SNL

Kenan Thompson, who kicks off his 16th season of Saturday Night Live, has shared the simple reason that he’s become the show’s longest-running cast member: He’s never landed any other jobs. “By Season 10, I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m here. I’ll be here next year. And we’ll see where this whole thing takes me,'” he tells Page Six. “Andy [Samberg] left to Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Fred [Armisen] left to Portlandia, Kristen [Wiig], Bill [Hader] and [Jason] Sudeikis left to movies. Everybody else left to a job. That’s what I was waiting on, and then all of a sudden I was in year 13.”
