Every comic wants to be a rock star and on The Goddamn Comedy Jam comics get to do just that!
The Goddamn Comedy Jam is the intersection of comedy stardom and rock & roll dreams. Comedians perform a stand up set and short story followed by a song of their choosing, accompanied by a live band. It is an unprecedented opportunity to shine as both a comedic star and rock God in the electrified atmosphere that can only be found at The Goddamn Comedy Jam.
Hosted by Josh Adam Meyers (Comedy Central/Netflix) and his house band Elemenopy, the GDCJ has been a hit since its creation in 2014. The JAM has sold out every show it has done in LA and NYC and plays to audiences all over the world. The JAM is a staple at all the major comedy festivals like JFL, Moontower, NYCF and music festivals around the United States like Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and Bumbershoot to name a few. Every major comedian has graced the GDCJ stage such as The Godfather of the JAM Bill Burr, Dave Chappelle, Wanda Sykes, Sarah Silverman and countless others. The popularity of the show grew so big that In 2016 it became a TV series on Comedy Central that ran for 2 seasons.
The best stand up comedy and storytelling draws on a comedian’s ability to be vulnerable. The GDCJ embraces that vulnerability and takes it to the next level by giving comedians a platform to bask in the glory of laughter and then morph into a rock star. It’s a thrilling experience for viewers who get to watch their favorite comedians express their personal artistry in a way that has never been seen before.“
Comedians tend to find a comfort zone and stay there and do lamer versions of themselves for the rest of their lives.”–Chris Rock What happens when you ask well established comics to take an audience on a journey using a creative medium unfamiliar to them?
Goddamn magic. That’s what.
