First We Feast: SNL cast member Kenan Thompson joins Hot Ones to eat wings

Kenan joins Hot Ones/First We Feast

Kenan Thompson discusses series. 

Blog King, Mass Appeal

NEW YORK — Kenan Thompson spewed a profanity-laced tirade while becoming the latest sacrificial lamb to appear on the popular YouTube series “Hot Ones” to answer questions for 20 minutes in conjunction with masticating a plate of spicy hot wings. While sedentary, the 42-year-old TV personality joined “First We Feast” host Sean Evans virtually to confabulate on everything from his new self-titled NBC comedy series to being the longest tenured cast member in “Saturday Night Live” history.

Kenan also delivered his best Steve Harvey mimicry.

However, all hell broke loose when the “Good Burger” thespian ingested a wing drenched in Kansas City’s “Da’Bomb Beyond Insanity Hot Sauce” which contains a hellish 135,600 Scoville units. “This is f*cking hot, yo,” Kenan wailed as the studio audience chortled at his expense. “That sh*t was hot, bro.”

“Now I know why they call it Da’Bomb,” he added.  

Kenan also devoured a wing saturated in Tyrann Mathieu’s “Honey Badger” sauce. Mathieu is an All-Pro safety for the Kansas City Chiefs. “Alright Honey Badger, don’t do me dirty now,” he cracked.

“We already suffered through the Super Bowl with you.”

Will Kenan survive the wings of death or punk out like the rest?

Watch the mouthwatering episode.

  1. Kenan does the best “hold it together” on the heat I think I’ve ever seen… and then I thought “Oh, no! he’s going in for the last wing before ‘the last dab'” …and then he goes back to another wing with a big dab. Kudos!

  2. Top 3 I’ve watched on here. Took it like a CHAMP !!! 🏆
    LESLIE JONES !!!!!!

  3. I’m so happy to see Kenan still in the business after all these years. 90’s kids 🙌🏽

  4. I’ve been watching SNL for decades and Kenan deserves to be mentioned with the greats. He’s like Eddie Murphy in one way- there have been seasons where the SNL cast was super weak and Kenan, like Eddie, had to carry the show by being in a multitude of skits and he had the ability to make the poorly written ones funny from his presence alone.

  5. He seems real chill. I was hoping for a Kenan & Kel question, but I can’t imagine what would’ve been asked. lol

  6. One of the least funny people on tv, he must have a great agent.

  7. That was worth it 100% And I don’t think I’ve seen anyone put more of the “De Bomb” sauce than usual, and ate two pieces of wings with the last sauce. Salute!

    One thing I miss him saying is: Why~!?


  9. Mad Respect! Not just for his career but he actually Coated All the Wings with sauce. Not just a few drops but a solid layer!

  19. Keenan still looks like a teenager

  20. Selina Alexandria

    Holy shit!!! He’s 42. He looks great.

  21. Nancy McNafferson

    I grew up watching Kenan and Kenan and Kel. It’s so awesome to see Kenan being successful.

  22. I used to bring da bomb into school, way back like 15-16 years ago. Dared all the other students to try it, and they’d often go running out of the classroom. It was so much. Definitely got me into trouble a few times.. well worth it for the entertainment it brought me and the rest of the class. Via showing them that it “isn’t that bad- see, I’ll try it…” I got the point where I used it like most people do ketchup, on fries, and other such things. No way in hell could I eat it like that anymore.. and yet Keenan would have blown even me out of the water.. hell, he somehow did better than Sean!!

  23. Effin’ LOVED this one!!

  24. Samuel Mateo, Jr.

    I had no idea Keenan had become the longest tenured cast member. Wow.

  25. Everytime I see Keenan, I flashback to my childhood. I’m a 90’s baby and I grew up on Keenan (and Kel) and All That. Staying up late. Being a kid. Good times.

  26. No lie, black don’t crack.

  27. Da bomb wins again! 😂😂

  28. Kind of a shame there was no mention of Kenan & Kel…

  29. Sean: Thats a lot..
    Kenan: Thats a lot?
    Sean: Thats a lot.
    Me: dying laughing in my chair lmao

  30. Kenan and Kel, and Good Burger were some of my favorite things to watch as a kid. Love this dude

  31. KENAN DID THE “BIG PAPI”!!!!!! Ahahahahahahahahha I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!!!!!!!

  32. I’m not disappointed, but I was kinda expecting Sean to ask him which sauce would go best on a Goodburger.

  33. I bought a bottle of Da Bomb Beyond Insanity, and I can tell you it’s NO JOKE! it’s pure FU in a bottle, no flavor as such, just pure burn! The weird thing about it is if you swallow any of it, you can feel exactly where it is in your intestines before you have your lava shit from it! Seriously the hottest thing I’ve ever ingested…

  34. ♫ Spicy as HE-ellllllll♫

  35. the bomb sucks ! bad flavor !!!!!

  36. Keenan is SNL’s og

  37. Fluffymonkeyem

    Kenan is looking great! I remember watching All That as a kid and loving Pierre Escargot. It’s always really nice to see someone have a good long career and keep on keeping on!

  38. Definitely will admit that this interview with Kenan was the best one I’ve seen on Hot Ones in a while. Super relaxed and enjoyable interview. Talk about a very humble person!!

  39. This was absolutely delightful, and a ton of fun to watch.

    Kenan absolutely nailed every spice and held up like a total boss. Add to that, this was a awesome conversation that was fun to hear between two great entertainers.

    Awesome video!

  40. Kenan seems like he’s from that group of guys like Steve Martin, Tom Hanks or Paul Rudd, as in he just seems like a genuinely good guy to his soul. Wish nothing but the best for him!

  41. I’ve always loved Kenan, my childhood crush on him still applies, he seems like such a genuine, chill ass dude. I wanna be his friend so bad!!!

  42. Enthusiastic Gamer

    When Kenan dumps Da Bomb; in his eyes you can see “NOOOO WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!?!”

  43. leatherjacket9

    This is an snl parody waiting to happen! Omg! I can see it now…

    A skit with a host asking off the wall questions as his guests devours the most toxic poisonous burning stuff ever!! And then have impersonated actors and ficitonal characters as guests like Shrek, RoboCop, Godzilla Stallone, Abraham Lincoln, Christopher Walken, etc… Comedy Gold! 🤣

  44. Wow, Kenan Thompson looks like he’s on his early 20’s ..And he’s 42. Not a single white person can’t look like he does at 40’s. Henry Cavill looks older and he’s a bit younger than Kenan.

  45. I use the bomb. I had a co-worker one night take a bet that if he could eat a tablespoon of the bomb you wouldn’t have to do any work and sit on his ass but he couldn’t drink anything for 5 minutes he only got three drops in a spoon put it in his mouth and immediately ran to the back door and projectile vomited for about 10 minutes. I love the bomb.

  46. That’s the way you do it. Kenan has to be crowned the Hot Ones King! Best ever on the show!

  47. I love that Keenan is a fan of the show ❤️

  48. WOW…impressive. he ate a lot of tha bomb. i had a tiny dab of the bomb and almost lost my damn mind. that hot sauce is not to be played with. lol.
