Comedy Central has ordered eight episodes of The Comedy Jam, an unscripted series where comedians talk about songs that have held importance for them and then offer their own renditions of said tunes.

The series previously existed as an hourlong special on Viacom, and featured guests as varied as Jay Pharaoh, Pete Davidson, and Adam Devine, who talked and sang about losing his virginity to Blink-182.

The show is based off of a live event in Los Angeles created by Josh Adam Meyers, who will be producing the show with Ugly Brother Studios.

Comedy Central president Kent Alterman said of the series, “We have been working under the false impression that what comedians want most is to have television and digital platforms to further their comedy careers. It turns out they really just want to be rock stars.”

Take a look at Pete Davidson giving his all to “Gangsta’s Paradise” below.

The Comedy Jam is in talks to air early next year.
