Going from hanging in the hood to performing comedy on Jay Leno’s “Tonight Show,” not
to mention the privilege of afterward being invited to take a seat on the “couch” which not
many comics are asked to do, has been a long and fulfilling journey. 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 comedy genius transcends class and racial divides. If you understand English,
Corey’s humor will tickle your funny bone. People all over the world can relate to the
drama of trying to make a relationship work. According to Corey, a “hunter” (man) being
captured by his “prey” (woman) makes for the best comedy ever.
Corey offers plenty of advice on how men who have been the victim of a “hostile
takeover” by the female in the relationship can take back control. You can believe there
is no counselor on the planet who offers the kind of relationship advice and remedies
Corey dispenses from the stage.
Corey Holcomb’s comedy set is both an auditory and visual experience. His facial
gestures alone can make an audience burst with laughter. “I spend a lot of time
practicing my stage faces because I need to be able to convey care and concern while I
criticize.” Although Corey has a long and diverse resume of successes, he remains
humble and approachable.
Corey’s film and television credits include the films “Think Like A Man Too," "Wedding
Ringer," independent film “Who’s Watching The Kids,” MTV2’s “Wild ‘N Out,” MTV’s
“Wild ‘N Out,” NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” 20th Century Fox’s “Like Mike,” a recurring

Swim’s TV series “Black Jesus.” He is also featured in Hip-Hop artist's Kendrick Lamar's
