Cory Michaelis will shock you with some of the things he says but do it in a way that you'll still find him charming. Even though he's a school teacher by day and comic by night, Cory keeps his act edgy enough to keep the audience from feeling like they’re in his classroom. He cleverly tells short stories and jokes that try to get audiences to think but are silly and absurd as well. Cory is a regular in all of the clubs in the Pacific Northwest and has headlined clubs, colleges, casinos, and weird bars all over the country. He didn’t win the 2013 World Series of Comedy (semi-finals), the 2012 Seattle International Comedy Competition (SICC), or the 2014 Tacoma Comedy Contest (2nd) but he took another crack at the SICC and made the 2014 finals. He is a regular at Brad Garrett's Comedy Club at the MGM in Las Vegas and has opened numerous times for one of his mentors, Louie Anderson. Cory is proud to say he has brought a great comedy show to his hometown of Everett, Washington as host and producer of “Everett Comedy Night”, a premier comedy show that is in its fifth year of monthly sold out shows.
