A teacher by day and comic by night, Cory Michaelis keeps his act relatively clean but edgy enough to keep the audience from feeling like they’re in a 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 or the 2012 Seattle International Comedy Competition but will take a crack at both again.
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 third year of monthly sold out shows.
