Zooman 

Comedian, rapper, dancer, actor, producer

If entertainment was a buffet, then Cory "Zooman" Miller would offer just about every dish one could want. Aside from being a headlining comedian, Miller can sing, rap, dance, act and produce. With more talent than he knows what to do with, Miller has managed to incorporate all of his abilities into one entertaining act, regardless of how it's classified.

The Jersey-born Miller moved to Atlanta in 1988. He later found work as a choreographer for Dallas Austin's group, the Highland Place Mobsters, and wrote for Lil' Zane.

Zooman likes to host. He hosted Thursday nights at the Yin Yang Cafe when Little John and the Chronicle would perform in '95, and co-hosted "The Mike Roberts Morning Show" on V-103 (WVEE-FM) from '96-'97.

As a comedian, Zooman has headlined at clubs and colleges across the nation as well as appeared on Comedy Central, NBC's "The Tonight Show," HBO's "Def Comedy Jam," BET's "Comic View" and "Showtime at the Apollo." He was also a member of the Black Comedy Tour, and has traveled all over Europe and South Africa to perform.

Like most entertainers, Miller lived in Los Angeles, from 1997-2000. While he was there, he hosted at the Improv, starred in one of Bud Light's Super Bowl commercials, and landed a development deal with NBC that he later walked away from. "They didn't know what to do with me. They had all these ideas of things they wanted me to be and I was like, 'OK, that's cool, but when do I get to be myself?'"

Zooman is currently shopping a radio show to XM that he and fellow Atlanta comedian Tyler Craig developed, called "Talk Ish Radio." He is also working on putting out comedy mix tapes, which include the already finished songs "Waffle House Thugs" and "The Medicinal Ode to P.P.P."
