NEW YORK, August 18, 2016 - Comedians tear up the stage in "Goddamn Comedy Jam" which showcases Pete Davidson ("SNL"), Adam Devine ("Workaholics" & "Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates"), Jim Jefferies ("Jim Jefferies: Freedumb"), Natasha Leggero ("Another Period") and Jay Pharoah ("SNL") telling funny, poignant and ridiculous stories that have an association with an iconic hit song.

Jefferies then follows with an impeccable impression of Liam Gallagher performing Oasis' "Wonderwall." Next up is Leggero with an anecdote about her familial connection to Rockford, IL and her segment is capped off by belting one out with a rock legend. Pharoah then takes the stage to reveal a vocally astounding version of Jack � and Justin Bieber's "Where Are � Now." Last up is Davidson who performs a ridiculously fun rendition of "Gangsta's Paradise," and then all the performers return to sing a classic rock anthem.
