Kenny is back with his 6th Stand-Up Comedy Special “The most interesting person in the room”. After “Don’t be that guy” , Kenny’s brand new Special focuses on how his outlook on the important people in his life has changed ever since he turned 28. Also, he talks about animals, birds and why the world being lazy around him is getting to him.
A 60 minute show with jokes, music and a lot of unnecessary act outs, Kenny’s sixth special is tighter, darker and weirder than before!

Samay caught in the middle of the conflict, tries to please and mollify both of them.
