Watch the performances from Comedy Central’s “Goddamn Comedy Jam”

In case you missed it over the weekend, Comedy Central debuted the first-ever televised edition of The Goddamn Comedy Jam, the live concert held monthly in Los Angeles.

Comedians tell stories and stand-up jokes that relate to a song of their choosing, then belt out that song with a full band, The Goddamn Band, and host Josh Adam Meyers. Among the participants for this first Comedy Central special: Pete Davidson, Adam Devine, Jim Jefferies, Natasha Leggero and Jay Pharoah.

Davidson even got an assist from Coolio himself on his rendition of Gangsta’s Paradise.

Adam Devine claimed he lost his virginity to this blink-182 song after taking his girlfriend to their concert in Kansas City when he was 17.

Jim Jefferies once hung out with Noel Gallagher from Oasis, which is one more reason to hear “Wonderwall.”

Natasha Leggero is from Rockford, Ill., which is the same town that birthed Cheap Trick. And when Leggero went back home for her grandmother’s funeral, this song played as trouble brewed. Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick joins in on guitar!

Jay Pharoah, meanwhile, hallucinated a vision of Justin Bieber, which is the only way anyone truly sees Biebs, by the way. “Where Are U Now.”
