Angelique Bates, It's Been 20 Years And You're Still ALL THAT!
Angelique Bates is an actress best known for the two seasons she served on the Nickelodeon sketch-comedy series ‘All That’.
Angelique was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and is of Haitian and Native American descent (Her second home is back on the East Coast in the "Big Apple"). Bates got her start in a Borax commercial when she was a baby at the tender age of 9 months old. By the time she was 12 Angelique had co-hosted 2 teen talk shows, appeared in several commercials (she subsequently landed an AT&T), music videos, and print work and a co-starring role in the movie, ‘Sweet Potato Ride’. Years later, she got the job on the sketch comedy series.
How Angelique booked ‘All That’? Bates' agent sent her out to audition for it and she did a Steve Urkel impression and four or five auditions Angelique became part of the cast and the rest is history.
Two seasons later, Angelique left ‘All That’. At the age of 16, Angelique performed her 1st professional paid stand-up gig at The Laugh Factory. She later booked co-starring roles on Strong Medicine and Boston Public. Angelique also co-wrote, produced, and starred in her own pilot featuring Eric Benet and is the host of her own Variety show on cable
Angelique is also a singer song covers such as the "Numb / Encore", which sampled the song "Fly So High".
This is the 20th Anniversary of the TV Show, ‘All That’ and Angelique is still acting, singer, writing and producing. The series may be over but Angelique Bates, you’re still ALL THAT and then some!
