Corey Holcomb: Comedy Show
Corey performed at his first open mic in 1992 and has since been on Jay Leno’s “Tonight Show,” while also taking top honors at the Miller Genuine Draft Comedy Search and Budweiser Comedy Competition.

Various times. $34. The Comedy Zone: 3130 Hartley Rd., Jacksonville, FL; eventvesta.com/events/11107-corey-holcomb // @coreyholcombfan
