Bio

Within his first year of performing stand-up, he led his own show at Boston's well-known Beantown Comedy Vault where he started Wicked Wednesdays. In 2008 he was the winner of the Catch a New Rising Star comedy competition. In 2009 he was a semi-finalist in the New York Comedy Contest. He played a major role in R&B singer Samson’s music video, appeared in a pair of Sam Adams Commercials and a variety of cable television shows. In 2010 Corey was a semi-finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival and this year he was the winner of The Funniest Comic in New England Contest.

Corey has been entertaining since childhood. Growing up in Milton - a small suburb in Massachusetts - and spending a lot of time in the city at his familes barbershop businesses allowed Corey to bring what he likes to call "Urbia" to the stage. Since a very early age he's had the ability to impersonate many different voices. He was always the center of attention with his impersonation of family members leaving them in tears at every gathering. He would often startle his childhood classmates by imitating a teacher or principal's voice in the hallways.

Corey made a quick transition from class clown to professionional headliner althrough his “no holds barred” training provided by Boston’s Improv Asylum. From there he became a part of his own short form improv troupe, Flaming Awesome. Referred to as funny, endearing, edgy, quick and exceptionally likeable when he is on the stage, Corey owns the crowd.
