While most fans know Taryn Manning for her acclaimed portrayal of Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett on Orange Is the New Black, the actress is also quite an impressive singer -- a talent she displays on an all-new episode of Comedy Central’s The Comedy Jam. And Et has your first look as Manning takes the stage with Def Leppard’s Phil Collen to perform “Pour Some Sugar on Me.”

The eight-episode show, which first premiered on March 22, features celebrities dishing on their favorite memories of iconic songs and then later reliving them on stage with a live performance.

David Bowie Birthday Celebration: Gary Oldman, La Roux, Simon Le Bon and More Gather to Celebrate Rocker’s Life — Watch

9 January 2017 9:21 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been almost a year to the day since we lost David Bowie, but the rock icon and beloved creative force is still foremost in the minds of those who knew and loved him best. As Billboard reports, on Sunday evening, some of those people — including fans, friends and even former bandmates — gathered together to celebrate what would have been Bowie’s seventieth birthday for a three-hour charity concert at London’s Brixton Academy. It was an appropriately rocking and raucous event.

The show was hosted by actor (and close Bowie pal) Gary Oldman, who took the stage not only to emcee the event, but to rock out to a few of Bowie’s classics, including “Sorrow” and “The Man Who Sold the World.”
