NBCUniversal and Comcast XFinity have joined together to launch their second annual Professors of Entertainment promotion. This year, the companies are giving one lucky university a chance to bring comedian and actor Kenan Thompson to their campus.

Thompson, who recently announced his return to “Saturday Night Live” for a 13th season, has been in numerous films such as “D2: The Mighty Ducks,” “Goodburger” and “Fat Albert.” Thompson made his television debut in Nickelodeon’s sketch comedy show “All That” and has appeared in various television shows since. On “SNL,” Thompson is famously known for his Rev. Al Sharpton and Bill Cosby impressions.

The event will culminate in a guest lecture and performance by Thompson.

In order to win, students must complete an online entry form to vote for their school. Students can return to vote only once per day but can also gain votes by participating in a series of tasks. Moreover, students can gain additional votes by taking an online quiz or watching a video on the promotion’s site. The promotion ends Monday, Sept. 28th.

The winner will be announced early to mid-October.
