Comedy, rock and metal are getting hitched again thanks to the folks at Comedy Central. There’s a new show that debuted earlier this week (March 22) called “The Comedy Jam” that marries rock and roll and stand-up in a way very similar to “Lip Sync Battle”, only this time around the stars will be actually singing.
And it’s nice to see rock and metal is well-represented thanks to Rob Halford, Sebastian Bach, Phil Collen and Richie Sambora, among others. Of the eight episodes planned, these performances are on my ‘Must-Watch” list:
April 12 – when Long Island’s own Jim Breuer and Rob Halford perform the Judas Priest classic “You’ve Got Another Thing Coming” as Breuer can actually sing.
April 19 – when another stand-up with pipes (Hal Sparks) teams with Sebastian Bach on “You Shook Me All Night Long” by AC/DC.
And April 26, when Malin Akerman, who’s no stranger to performing rock and metal onstage, performs Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”.
