Earlier this October, Corey Holcomb shook things up by publicly calling out several comedians for stealing material, in which he described it as ‘#fakecomicblast.’ Before kicking off a weekend of shows at Fort Lauderdale Improv, Holcomb spoke to Broward Palm Beach New Times to share why he called out the comedians.

Q: Your Twitter feed is an entertaining, crazy spectacle. You treat it like no one else I’ve seen. There was your recent #Comicblast campaign. What thought process goes into it?

……But I do go out of my way to not be so mean, that it’s all the way insulting. Sometimes it’s a little shocking what I say on Twitter, I worry about the way things are going in the world now, if someone may be able to orchestrate some drama against me. Even though I worry about that, I can’t stop doing what I’m doing. It is what it is. As far as those comics I put on blast, I would love for them to challenge me on what I’m saying. Everything I say I can back it up, especially with these comedians, I know these guys. When you’re a comedian who comes out here and you work to come up with original material, then you see these guys who, in my opinion, steal from the comedy game, I have to put them on blast. I could have kept going with people, but I’m just one guy, I can’t be the comedy pope. (laughs) So I just took a stab at those four, but I can’t stay I won’t keep stabbing on folks. Depends on how I feel that day on Twitter.
