Corey Lamont Holcomb is a prominent American actor, radio host, and comedian. Holcomb is best known for his show, The Corey Holcomb 5150 Show, which is available on YouTube.
Holcomb grew up in Chicago’s “Robert Taylor Homes," which were reasonably feared among the citizens and were later declared defunct. Holcomb sometimes refers to the time spent in these homes and uses them as his content for his comedy show. Before turning to comedy, he had a brief stint as a basketball player as well.
Rise as Comedy Star and Internet Personality
Holcomb started gaining fame as a rising comedian along with two other stand-up comedians from Chicago, DeRay Davis and Godfrey. He often refers to himself as "Ghetto Dr. Phil." He poses as a relationship doctor and talks about how relationships go wrong, interspersed with wit and humor.
Holcomb became a known face on television as he frequently appeared on shows like Last Comic Standing, Nick Cannon Presents Wild ‘n Out, and Comic View. He was also featured on The Jerry Springer Show. Later, he went on to appear in his own comedy specials, like Corey Holcomb: The Problem is You and Comedy Central Presents: Corey Holcomb, among others.
Holcomb also appeared in several sitcoms as a guest star. The most notable ones are Everybody Hates Chris, Black Jesus, and Tyler's House of Payne, among others. He has also done brief roles in films like Dance Flick and Like Mike. He also appeared in shows like Corey Holcomb: Your Way Ain’t Working. He often credits his friend Kevin Hart for giving him the opportunity to star in major films.
Holcomb also lent his voice to The Cleveland Show”, a spin-off of the popular “Family Guy." He is a well-known voice actor and has been the voice of Robert Tubbs, Cleveland's rival on the show. Holcomb frequently appeared on Jamie Foxx's satellite radio channel. Titled “The Foxxhole," the show successfully ran for five years.
Holcomb now spends his time between his internet show, “The Corey Holcomb 5150 Show," and doing stand-up comedy. His show deals with the trials of the African-American community in a humorous way but sheds light on pertinent issues like racism, economic development for the community, police bias against blacks, and single motherhood.
Corey Holcomb's shows are full of fun and laughter, yet they will make you think about critical social issues.
