Kel Mitchell balances pastoring and acting
"Welcome to Good Burger the home of the Good Burger can I take your order"? This was a popular line uttered by Kel Mitchell that originated as a sketch on the Nickelodeon series “All That” where Mitchell starred as Ed (no last name) and Keenan Thompson portrayed his friend and co-worker Dexter Reed. The sketch became a film that was a box-office success.
Good Burger was made for only 8 million and grossed close $24 million against a reported budget of $8 million. After the film, Mitchell became a youth pastor and travels the nation speaking to young people. In 2020 he spoke at Convocation at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
Good Burger 2 will premiere in November
The film has taken on cult status and the sequel Good Burger 2 will debut on Nov. 22 in the U.S. and Canada on Paramount+. GB2 premieres on Nov. 23 in the U.K. and Australia and will be available in additional international markets at a later date. Mitchell travels the US ministering to young people encouraging them to trust God and believe in their dreams.
In addition to Kenan and Kel the cast for Good Burger 2 includes original “Good Burger” cast members Josh Server, Lori Beth Denberg, and Carmen Electra. The film also features Lil Rel Howery, Jillian Bell, Kamaia Fairburn, Alex R. Hibbert, Fabrizio Guido, Elizabeth Hinkler and Emily Hinkler as Cindy and Mindy, and Anabel Graetz as Ruth.
