Fresh out the box. Stop, look and watch. It's Aaaaaaall That.
If you don't think All That's theme song—performed by the timeless TLC—offers the best opening sequence ever, then we had extremely different childhoods.
In some bizarre and cruel trick of time, it turns out that All That first premiered in 1994, making it 21 years old. As soon as your favorite childhood TV shows are old enough to drink, you know you're over the hill. In honor of Earboy, Pierre Escargot, and the rest of your favorite characters, let's take some time to look back.
Check out what your favorite cast members from All That have been up to since leaving Nickelodeon's unforgettable sketch show!
Angelique Bates was a member of All That's original cast and the first one to leave the show. She continued acting following her departure in some small roles on Strong Medicine and Boston Public. Bates is also a rapper and performed under the name Alizay for a while. Most imporantly, you can find Angelique in a segment from Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! called Bub-Bubs.
Lori Beth Denberg
Here's some vital information for ya: Lori Beth was easily the best cast member All That ever had. She left the show because she "was getting older" (she was 22 years old by Season 4) and went on to star as Lydia Liza Gutman on The Steve Harvey Show. She's had hilarious cameos in Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and, more recently in [Workaholics](series:720998).
These days, she's an ordained minister specializing in "quirky, personalized" weddings. She also does a variation of "Vital Information" based around celebrities through Perez Hilton's website.
Katrina Johnson introduced an entire generation of politically oblivious kids to Ross Perot, and I will be forever grateful for how bizarre that is. Johnson now describes herself as an actress/singer/comedian/train wreck and co-hosts the "Uncensored Podcast." She was also a series regular on Playboy TV's King of Clubs as a "vivacious cigarette girl."
Kel was a fan favorite in the days of All That and Kenan and Kel. Following his Nickelodeon days. These days, Kel has found success in voice work for Motorcity as Dutch and Wild Grinders as Jay Jay. He was even nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program for his work in Clifford the Big Red Dog.
Sadly, Kel said this month that he and Kenan haven't spoken in about seven years.
After leaving All That after her third season, Reyes has continued acting. She had guest roles on Six Feet Under, Strong Medicine, NYPD Blue, and Boston Public. In the greatest piece of trivia I learned today, she also voiced the character LaCienega Boulevardez in Disney Channel's The Proud Family.
These days she works as a DJ on Sirius XM's Playboy radio.
Josh Server left All That after the show decided to relaunch with a new cast. He made some guest appearances on later Nickelodeon shows like 100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd, Drake & Josh, Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, and Sam & Cat. He's supposedly good friends with Drake Bell, Josh Peck, and Miranda Cosgrove.
Kenan has stuck to his All That roots by landing on another sketch comedy show you may have heard of: [Saturday Night Live](series:788145). He's been on SNL since 2003, but still managed to pull in some consistent work in some other projects. Kenan voiced Greedy in The Smurfs and [The Smurfs 2](movie:393218) and Impresario in the Hulu cartoon The Awesomes. Next up, catch him in Rock Dog and Brothers in Laws.
For a while after All That, Amanda Bynes was the one with the best career. She worked consistently in her teen years, hopping from The Amanda Show to The WB'S What I Like About You. Her devoted fan base allowed her an impressive film career, and she booked starring roles in successful comedies like Big Fat Liar, What A Girl Wants, and She's the Man.
As Penny Pingleton in Hairspray, Amanda was featured on the Grammy-nominated soundtrack. These days, Amanda makes headlines for her legal and potentially psychological issues after being placed on a couple of psychiatric holds. She's currently studying at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.
After already being a noteworthy Nickelodeon presence on The Adventures of Pete and Pete, Danny Tamberelli joined All That in its third season. After leaving the show, he took some time to focus on his education, graduating from Hampshire College. More recently, he leant his voice to Grand Theft Auto V as Jimmy De Santa, and he is a member of the sketch comedy group Man Boobs Comedy.
The former Mr. Mariah Carey used All That as a launching pad, and he's arguably superseded Amanda Bynes as the most successful All That alum. He used his comedic chops to host his own shows like The Nick Cannon Show and Wild 'N Out. He also made a name for himself in movies like Drumline, Love Don't Cost a Thing, and Roll Bounce. Currently, he's hosting America's Got Talent.
