Life and career

Mitchell was born in Atlanta, Georgia. After attending Douglass High School, he graduated from the University of Miami, where he was a member of the University of Miami's football team and the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity.

He made his first television appearance on BET’s Comic View in 1999 where he instantly became a favorite among the show’s loyal followers. Shortly after Comic View, Mitchell moved to both Los Angeles and New York City where he had several appearances on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn and two on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. This sparked high demands from universities, corporate events, and concert promoters all over the U.S. and internationally. He was offered his own Comedy Central half hour special and is now headlining various comedy clubs on the circuit.

In 2003, Mitchell was asked to be a feature player on Saturday Night Live. In 2005 he was promoted to cast member. Mitchell was a featured player on SNL's 29th and 30th seasons, and became a full cast member at the start of the 31st. His screen time was drastically reduced after this promotion. On September 20, 2006, Saturday Night Live announced that the show was dropping Mitchell, Chris Parnell and Horatio Sanz from the show.

After his stint on SNL, he has continued doing stand-up comedy, something he did even while on the show. Recently, he was seen in the film Who's Your Caddy? which features a cameo from fellow SNL alum, Garrett Morris.

With the help of Quincy Jones’s son, QD3, Mitchell released his stand-up comedy available in DVD form entitled, “Snap Famous.” He is also a writer and offers relationship advice in Essence magazine. In addition to his column, he has released a book entitled, “Your Girlfriends Only Know So Much”, that gives dating advice to African-American women.

On September 13, 2008, he married Jessica Santos in Atlanta.
