‘Saturday Night Live’ comedian Kenan Thompson has been honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The former Nickelodeon star was joined by his two daughters to celebrate the monumental occasion in his career on Thursday.
The 44-year-old wore a navy suit and white shirt, completed with a peach-toned dickie bow as he stepped out at the landmark in California.

According to the Today Show, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame Ana Martinez said, “Kenan Thompson is the voice of a generation.”
Kenan’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star neighbours ‘SNL’ creator Lorne Michaels.
“It’s just an honour and a privilege going in next to the GOAT [Greatest Of All Time] Lorne Michaels,” the comedian said.
