We’ve been waiting for a show like Comedy Central’s The Comedy Jam. It’s got a little bit of everything we like: comedians, celebrity guests, over-the-top musical performances, and folks belting out tunes like no one’s watching (even though a whole lot of people are watching).
Here’s how it works: comedians take the stage to tell a funny story about a song that means something to them, then live out their rock star fantasies by performing the song with a live band.
For example, here’s Chris Hardwick absolutely crushing his favorite Bon Jovi song “Wanted Dead or Alive”. The dude can SING (plus this clip includes a bonus Tom Cruise story you won’t want to miss):
And here’s Sam Richardson revisiting his childhood love of Wayne’s World with his rendition of Sweet’s “Ballroom Blitz”. His 80s metal falsetto is surprisingly good.
The Comedy Jam premieres March 22 at 10/9c on Comedy Central. And catch new episodes Wednesdays at 10/9c or anytime on the CC App.
