Corey Holcomb Tore Down the Stage at Punchline Philly! Watch Our Recap Video!
I’ve seen my fair share of comics throughout the years. Some made me smirk here and there, some made my stomach hurt with laughter. Corey Holcomb was definitely the latter of the two. Selling out six shows at Punchline over a 3 day span (midnight show was added on Saturday), homeboy delivered the funny.
If you’re not familiar with Corey’s work you may have seen him in projects such as Comedy Central’s “Last Comic Standing,” “Think Like a Man Too,” “The Wedding Ringer, MTV’s “Wildn’ Out” and also his flagship show 5150 on Jamie Foxx’s Foxhole Radio.
For the most part America has seen the cleaner version of Corey mostly movies. His stand-up however is a complete 180. Think Patrice O’Neal type raunchiness with a no-holds-barred subjects. Mainly staying within the realm of relationships specifically cheating, Corey dissected the dark world of cheating. The audience could hardly contain himself as Corey touched on subjects including the consequences of not using protection as well as giving a hood dissertation of the difference of the “the real girl” vs. “the side chick.”
As the crowd switched from shocked to exploding with laughter, it was awesome to see how Corey Holcomb can control a room. Especially in a town know for tough crowds. Hear what fans had to say about Corey Holcomb’s performance at Punchline in our recap video above.
