COREY HOLCOMB "MTV & BET" 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


role on UPN’s “Half & Half,” NBC’s “The Tonight Show,” BET’s “Comic View,” Fox’s “Mad


TV,” Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam,” “It’s Showtime at


the Apollo,” Showtime’s “Shaq’s All Star Comedy Jam,” Tyler Perry’s “House of Pain,” TV


Ones “Rickey Smiley Show,” and plays recurring character Robert Tubbs on Fox’s “The


Cleveland Show”! He has appeared in three comedy specials of his own, Corey


Holcomb: “The Problem Is You,” Comedy Central Presents: “Corey Holcomb,” and Corey


Holcomb: “Your Way Ain’t Working.”


Corey currently hosts his own internet radio program, The Corey Holcomb 5150 Show,


which began on The Foxxhole but later moved to CoreyHolcomb.com.


Corey is currently bringing funny to the big screen with his role as 'Boonie' on “Adult


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


music video "These Walls."
