​Contest to bring SNL personality to UNM opens

UNM students can vote for Kenan Thompson, a veteran member of Saturday Night Live, to appear at UNM as part of a national competition held in a collaboration between NBCUniversal and Comcast.

The contest is available to colleges nationwide, and students can vote by visiting, according to an email sent to the Daily Lobo.

According to the email, students can vote and increase their chances of winning by “participating in a series of tasks such as taking an online quiz or watching a video.

For every task completed, students will win additional entries to attend the lecture. The school with the most votes will win a performance by Kenan in their college town.”

Students provide their vote on the website by entering with their UNM email addresses.

Voting is open until Sept. 28, with the winning college being announced the same day.

According to the release, Thompson is about to begin his 13th season on SNL, and has “a catalog of hilarious impressions that include Rev. Al Sharpton, Steve Harvey and Charles Barkley...he’s also starred in hit movies including Fat Albert, Good Burger and Heavyweights.”
