Like most ’90s kids, you probably dreamed of what it would be like to participate in all of those hilarious comedy sketches on Nickelodoen’s beloved All That. Well, in 2003, actress Christina Kirkman actually got to live out that fan fantasy when she won the “R U The Funniest Kid In America” contest.
Winning the highly competitive competition at just 1o-years-old, Kirkman earned a spot as a series regular on the iconic kid’s comedy sketch series. Together with other ’00s cast members like Jamie Lynn Spears, Chelsea Brummet and Jack De Sena, Kirkman ticked our funny bones with sketches like American Idiot, Good Burger, and Arts and Crafts with Percy and Poncy.
After All That came to an end in in 2005, Kirkman took a break from acting to head back home to Massachusetts where she focused on her studies. Eventually, the child star attended and graduated from Emerson College where she earned her degree in broadcast journalism and also participated in on-campus productions.
Up next, Kirkman is making her grand return to acting! She’s set to star in Night Shadow. The intense crime drama focuses on the days leading up to a shooting.
We’re definitely looking forward to seeing what Kirkman brings to the screen now that we know she’s got a new project coming up!
