Punch Up the Jam

Comedians are frequently asked to enhance a joke or a screenplay, but to improve a pop song? Not at all. Punch Up the Jam, the comic tag duo of Miel Bredouw and Demi Adejuyigbe, champions and dissects and redefines some of popular music’s most memorable classics.

Every week, the pair, along with a new guest, debate on a hit song.
