Kenan Thompson knows what comedy is — he’s been doing it almost his entire life! He starred in Nickelodeon’s Kenan & Kel when he was just 18, and he’s now been on Saturday Night Live longer than any other performer in the history of the show. So that makes him a perfect judge for NBC’s new comedy competition, Bring the Funny. We’ve already seen shows that try to discover the next great stand-up comedian, but Thompson told us Bring the Funny goes way beyond just stand-up, and that’s what makes it so much fun to watch.

Bring the Funny premieres next Tuesday night at 10/9c on NBC.
