The Comedy Jam / Comedy Central
One of the hottest comedy shows in Los Angeles and New York, is the Goddamn Comedy Jam. The show takes music and comedy and blends them together, by allowing comedians to share music related jokes, and follow them up with a performance of a popular song, sometimes dressed up as the band or artist! Comedians have the option to play an instrument, or sing!
One of the highlights of the GDCJ, came when the show was airing on Comedy Central (for Comedy Central, the show was rebranded to just The Comedy Jam). Popular comedian and TV host Bert Kreischer told a story about how he tried to start a band back in high school. Quick side note: Bert is one of the best story tellers in comedy. Seriously. If you haven’t already, look up his story called “The Machine,” which is about how he once got involved with the Russian Mafia and robbed a train. Anyway, this story talks about how he tried to start a band, and ended up kicking one of the guitarists out because he was “too good.” Well, the guitarist claimed that he would start a better band than them. And he did. The guitarist happened to be Mark Tremonti, and the band he started was Creed.
So Bert ends up inviting a few members of his old band, former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot” Thal, and Creed vocalist and frontman Scott Stapp on stage for an unforgettable cover of “Higher.”
