Everyone knows that Kenan Thompson does a perfect Steve Harvey impression—even Harvey himself.

Thompson, the longest-tenured cast member in Saturday Night Live history, portrays Harvey in hilarious Family Feud sketches on the weekly show.

He recently told reporters that he and Harvey have been friends for quite a while with the TV host and producer jokingly telling Thompson to “watch yourself” over his impressions.

“I just saw [Steve Harvey] when we were shooting Bring The Funny and he was on the next stage doing Family Feud. I sat down with him and he was like, ‘You better watch yourself.’ I love Steve. I’ve known him for a super long time,” Thompson added.

The pair have actually worked together before. Thompson appeared on The Steve Harvey Show from 1996 to 1998 as a recurring character named Junior.

Thompson, who recently scored his own NBC series titled The Kenan Show, told reporters that his decades-long career has been full of learning experiences.

“Comedy is a craft. It’s something that you sharpen over time so the more you educate yourself about topics and references the better [your comedy] will be and the more appealing it’ll be to a wider audience,” he explained. “Your comedy skills get better over time but you have to work at it.”
