Kelfies Are a Thing

Annalise Mark“Welcome to Good Burger, home of the good burger, can I take your order?” is a phrase that resonates with the kids of the 90s. It was said by Kel Mitchell, who is best known as the co-star of Nickelodeon’s “Kenan and Kel,” “All That” and the movie “Good Burger.”

Last night, Blue Devil Productions hosted the very man himself for a free comedy show in the Great Hall of the Memorial Student Center.  

The line of people waiting to get into the show extended from the Great Hall past the ballrooms and downstairs, well into Huff’s Lounge. Blue Devil Productions estimated that nearly 500 UW-Stout students attended. Everyone was beyond excited to reminisce about their childhood memories of the actor who starred in the shows they grew up watching.

Prior to the show, I was working behind the scenes with BDP to get event volunteers in order and lastminute details triple-checked, along with ensuring Kel was ready to go. When Kel and his road manager strolled backstage for the first time, they mirrored us with big smiles and warm welcomes.

When 8:05 p.m. rolled around, Kel burst through the side doors in the Great Hall, danced around the crowd and high-fived everyone within an arms length. Kel’s act was filled with Good Burger references, jokes about things college students could relate to and material that required audience participation.

Even with nearly 500 people in attendance, Kel wanted to meet everyone after the show and take a “Kelfie,” or a selfie with Kel. And without a doubt, nearly everyone flew out of their seats to get in line to meet the “Good Burger” man. 


The entire Great Hall was filled with smiles, laughter and picture-taking the entire night. Everyone I have spoke
n to agrees this comedy show was one for the books.  

I’m proud of everyone who made this event a success.
