COREY HOLCOMB  BET & MTV Special Engagement

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
