Great selection of comedians who were very poised and funny. Corey was a riot, honest, hard-hitting, witty, and down right hilarious.

Description

Corey Holcomb will perform stand-up comedy at a funeral if they’re serving drinks. And he’ll kill. A native of inner city Chicago, Corey’s distinctive voice of what it means to be “ghetto” and what it takes to be a player makes him one the most engaging and appealing acts in comedy. No matter how cold his stories of poverty, street life, and women may be, he always warms you with his charming smile, and he certainly leaves you rolling with laughter.

Corey hit his first open mic in 1992 when Adele Givens called him to the stage. He was a smashing success and has been a full-time comedian ever since. He has taken top honors at the Miller Genuine Draft Comedy Search, Budweiser Comedy Competition, Chicago Home Jam, and Laffapalooza. He has appeared at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival and the Chicago Comedy Festival.

Corey’s film and television credits include 20th Century Fox’s “Like Mike,” a recurring role on UPN’s “Half & Half,” NBC’s “The Tonight Show” and “Late Friday,” Fox’s “Mad TV,” Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam,” “It’s Showtime at the Apollo,” and BET’s “Comic View.”
