You know you have a special gift with respect to the funny game if you can come out on stage looking like you had paused a PlayStation 3 game, changed out of your house shoes and moseyed on over to Westport Plaza to bring the house down! Corey Holcomb had the folks weak at the Funny Bone as he threatened to date a woman in the audience, talked about the side woman/side baby game. I must give a note to my audience neighbors – the male component of the couple in particular. Even though he probably knows this now based on how things probably turned out for him after the show was over, I feel compelled to tell the masses that kissing your boo in the mouth and publicly proclaiming her as your side chick is absolutely NOT about that life! She played it cool during the comedy, but something in my spirit tells me that a cuss out went down in the parking lot and stretched all the way down Westline Industrial Drive.
But back to the show, y’all already know the nature of black comedy – i.e. NONE of his show is safe for Partyline. Those of us in the building will be cackling until he makes his way back to the Lou. I’m telling you, I live for Corey Holcomb at least as much as some of the comics that headline arenas and whatnot. And when he told his friend and fellow comic Jessie Taylor that all he needed was a bang to make his female security guard dreadlock ponytail complete, I was ready to follow him on the road and make my world-famous fried egg sandwiches at his every command!
