Ukulele Underground
The guy in the video is using a round the neck wire frame, the kazoo is held with what looks like a rubber ring around it's tail.
I found the thing holding onto the kazoo tail is called a "Rubber cushioned Tube Clamp" or "Fixing Clamp with Rubber".
They come in a number of different sizes.  I believe they are sold by electronics suppliers or do an on-line search
