He doesn’t look much taller than Kel in recent photos of the two standing next to each other. There are some where they even look identical.

How tall would you guess Kel Mitchell ?
Editor Rob
He does look a bit shorter than Kenan
MaskDeMasque said on 15/Jun/21
He looked 5'8.5 in Kenan and Kel. Kel was the same height as him iirc.

Rob either kenan deserves a downgrade or cudi is wearing lifts here Click Here
Editor Rob
Looked a bit further away than Cudi, how much that effected height is tricky to say, sometimes it's not much, other times it's more than a fraction.

Yeah Jost definitely wear lifts on account that he looks like a six footer most of the time and looks taller than 6'2 Michael Che when he's sitting down, when he's no more than 5'10. I think Jost is 5'10 no more no less

There is a no promo for snl where he's next to bill burr, 5'8" is more accurate.

5ft 8 flat isn't impossible.

Keenan always seems to be edged out next to Fred Armisen. I give him a weak 5'8".
Matt said on 11/May/17

Kel Mitchell. What do you think Rob?

I have all the list of the current SNL Cast heights
Kenan Thompson: 5 ft 8 in (Note: Rob, you might really need to please change his height because he does not give the appearance of being that tall.)
Beck Bennett: 5 ft 6 1/2 in to 5 ft 7 in
Sasheer Zamata: 5 ft 7 in
Kate McKinnon: 5 ft 4 in
Kyle Mooney: 5 ft 7 in to 5 ft 7 1/2 in
Bobby Moynihan: 5 ft 7 in
Colin Jost: 5 ft 9 1/2 in to 5 ft 10 in (actually might have a large shoe size with 2 inch lift shoes to give a taller appearance, but on an episode of Saturday Night Live, he looked a little shorter than 5 ft 10 in Chris Rock and in some cases significantly shorter than Taran Killam and Cecily Strong in high heels might be a tad taller than him and Vanessa Bayer with heels might approach near his height, so Colin Jost is pretty much average in height,)
Vanessa Bayer: 5 ft 6 in
Pete Davidson: 6 ft 3 in (can look 6 ft 2 1/2 in sometimes) If you go on Youtube and see Pete Davidson do stand up comedy, he mentions his height as 6 ft 3 in.
Michael Che: 6 ft 1 1/2 in to 6 ft 2 in
Jay Pharoah: 6 ft 1 to 6 ft 1/2 in
Taran Killam: 6 ft 0 1/2 in (looks shorter than Bill Hader in some cases)
Cecily Strong: 5 ft 8 in
Aidy Bryant: 5 ft 2 1/2 in to 5 ft 3 in
Please comment these heights if they are on point.

If He's 5'8" then Kel Mitchell's no more than 5'7", which I can believe just look at him next to Jennette Mccurdy and Ariana Grande, who are both 5'0", in Sam and Cat.

I watching Barbershop 2 and saw that Kenan Thompson and Ice Cube are about the same height when they stood up right next to each other. Ice Cube is also about 5'8"- 5'9".

Sure john do you have sex with him too? you sick sick man....this guy is fat and short no way to disrprove it....
Jon said on 23/Oct/12
Kel Mitchell is definitely 5'8,because he's not much shorter than kenan thompson.Kel Mitchell is 1 inch shorter than Kenan Thompson because Kenan Thompson is 5'9.By the way he also wears basketball sneakers that make him 2 inches taller.
steve said on 12/Oct/08
when kenan and kel stood next to each other in the last ever episode, both looked the same height, so that means kel must have grown 3 inches?
thekiddd said on 11/Jul/08

5'8" seems about right. How tall is Kel? :)

Just by visually diminishing inches from the top of Damien Fahey's head, it seems like Keenan Thompson is about 5ft 8in.
