The All-Star Comedy Festival featuring Corey Holcomb, Lavell Crawford, J.B. Smoove, Smokey Suarez, and Earthquake is coming to the Fox Theatre!
Corey Holcomb was born in Chicago in 1968 and is a stand up comedian and actor. He began his career in comedy with the help of another Chicago based comedian, Godfre Danchimah. Corey said in an interview, “He [Godfrey] would talk about how he was on stage and was having a good time and I was like “I wanna do it.” He was like “Corey, it’s not easy as sounds.” He took me to the comedy club; but I think he took me there to show me a lesson. I went to this open mike and I rocked. I rocked the first time, so I was cocky. I invited everybody from the neighborhood for the next week. I bombed so badly. Between 2007 and 2011, Corey regularly featured on Jamie Foxx's satellite radio channel (The Foxxhole) and he currently hosts currently hosts his own internet show (The Corey Holcomb 5150 Show). He’s also starred in many films (Like Mike, The Watermelon Heist, Baggin', Dance Flick, Who's Watching the Kids, Think Like a Man Too, and The Wedding Ringer) and TV shows (Half and Half, Nick Cannon Presents Wild 'n Out, Everybody Hates Chris, The Cleveland Show, Comic View, Def Comedy Jam, Last Comic Standing, and Black Jesus).
