GRAMMY award winning artist Kenny G shared the stage with comedians Jenny Zigrino and Ron Lynch on the June 21 episode of Comedy Central's @Midnight with Chris Hardwick. Culling from the darkest recesses of social media, they compete to determine who will be the funniest person for the next twenty three and a half hours. The group shared little-known royal traditions, guessed what kind of severance package Uber's former CEO received and made up #MillennialFood.
Kenny G stood toe-to-toe with the two comics and delivered audience-pleasing one-liners like, “Members of the Royal Family are not allowed to have casusal sax.”
