'90s Nickelodeon fans remember watching "All That," a sketch comedy show that had kids rolling on the floor laughing.
Lori Beth Denberg was a cast member I loved to watch. Her energy and humor was always on point.
Denberg talked with TheTrueGossip.com about what she's been up to recently, as well as her roles on "All That" and "Workaholics."
Lori Beth Denberg enjoys the fact that people loved (and still love) "All That," and she shared some of her favorite memories from the show.
"It was my first professional job as an actor so I learned so much about television production and how many people it takes to get a show on the air. I would ask everyone about their jobs," Denberg told TTG. "It was always fun to work with animals on the show. There was a cow (who was stinky), puppies that were cute, and a goose who flew off set when we were filming in front of the live audience."
Denberg also talked about the funniest moments while on set, "Kenan [Thompson] was the cast member who was most likely to make me break character and laugh. One of my favorite things was a scene where I was driving in a convertible with the Big Ear of Corn. When I look back on it I think about how crazy it was!"
Fun fact: There's a Facebook fan page dedicated to the Big Ear of Corn. Oh, and a BuzzFeed post.
Many celebrities appeared on the show and Denberg worked with some of her favorites, "We worked with Usher, Coolio, Run DMC, TLC, Tyra Banks, Destiny's Child, Tia and Tamara Mowery, Malcolm Jamal Warner, The Spice Girls, and the cast of another Nickelodeon show, 'The Adventures of Pete and Pete,' which was one of my favorites! There were so many more too! It was so cool. It made us feel like big stars!"
The theme song for the show was performed by TLC, and I'll admit, it gets stuck in my head all the time.
Denberg was a cast member on the show from 1994-1998, and played Lydia on "The Steve Harvey Show" from 1998-2002. Denberg has worked with a lot of talented actors and actresses over the years and continues to keep in touch.
"I am Facebook friends with many of my old cast mates. It's weird to see everyone grown up. Danny Tamberelli is a rock star!"
Literally. He's a rock star now (and that's not a surprise because he had the best hair in the '90s).

In 2004, Denberg landed a role in the movie Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and worked alongside Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn, but her acting career didn't end there. She excited many of her fans in 2012 when she played herself on a hit Comedy Central show.
"I was called by the producer from the show 'Workaholics.' That was so fun, and so different from working on Nickelodeon! I never sat in a hot tub with guys smoking joints on Nickelodeon!"
Once again, she appeared on BuzzFeed.
Denberg continues to have a busy schedule. Recently, she's been working as a writer and has done work with some non-profit organizations that support great causes in her community. And guess what, she also officiates weddings!
"I got ordained to marry my oldest friend and his now wife. People really loved the ceremony and told me I should do more of them! I write personalized ceremonies for each couple," Denberg said. "It's really amazing to get to know new people and be part of such a special moment in their lives!"
Well, kids. It looks like our fun trip back to the '90s is coming to a close. But first, Lori Beth Denberg has a special message she wants to share with her fans.
"I would like to tell my fans that I'm so grateful they enjoyed the work we did on 'All That.' I hear from a lot of people now, 'You made my childhood!' It feels good to know that the work we did meant so much to the Nickelodeon kids and that it was such a big part of their lives growing up."
"If you want to get a dog or cat, rescue one from a shelter (I felt like I should say something socially conscious)."
