Kenan Thompson Is Supposedly Earning Six Figures for His New Creative Project on ‘SNL.’

Kenan Thompson’s life narrative is said to be quite valuable. The long-running Saturday Night Live performer has reportedly sold the rights to a comedy-filled biography for a (dollar)1 million payday, according to Page Six.
