He has left crowds laughing all over the country, performing with such comic heavyweights as Katt Williams, Cedric The Entertainer, Melanie Camacho, Sherri Shepherd, Chris Spencer, and Rodney Perry. Kenté recently returned from co-headlining a tour of the U.S. Military bases in japan, bringing his humor to our troops.

Kenté draws the inspiration for his comedy routine from his seemingly never-ending life as a bachelor, being a single father of a teenage daughter, and his dysfunctional (which is the
clinical word for “crazy”) parents and upbringing. He has been refining his comedy skills on stages all across the country so watch out for more big things from this all-around talent in the
very near future.
