Comedian Corey Holcomb



Corey Holcomb will perform a 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."


Corey came over to do the Real Deal Comedy Jam tour in February 2009.  His comedic style is what I'd call 'shock comedy' which is funny only because it's true.  But the subject matter is normally too uncomfortable to talk about.  Unless your Corey Holcomb of cause, who gets away with talking about anything.  Any player in the room will shrink into his chair as all his tricks of the game are revealed by Corey.


JEP Quote:  "It was a real privilege to work with Corey.  I have been a fan of his work for a long time.  The majority of people know him from 'Wild n Out', but I actually know Corey from his Def Comedy Jam days when he was one of my favourite comics from the 1st series.  We were a little unsure as to how he would be received in the UK as his material is very edgy.  But we took the gamble and were really please with the feedback we had".
