Cory Michaelis brings an excitement and likability to the stage that is difficult to not enjoy. Cory was a finalist in the 2010 Giggles’ Laff Off and has been featured multiple times in the Everett Herald and on Seattle’s “Evening Magazine”. That’s right folks, local press!
Cory has also taken his act on the road to Louie Anderson’s show in Las Vegas, Harvey’s Comedy Club in Portland, The Gaslamp Show in San Diego, as well as many one-night engagements in the western half of the states. Now, Cory is working as host and producer of “Everett Comedy Night”, a premier show in his hometown of Everett, Washington that sells out every month.
A teacher by day and comic by night, Mr. Michaelis keeps it relatively clean but edgy enough to keep the audience from feeling like they’re in a classroom. Cory shares clever jokes about teaching, marriage without kids, his grandma, and race relations in an act that tries to get audiences to think but doesn’t take itself too seriously. His style has been called “Drake Withamy”, a flattering comparison to the 2003 Seattle International Comedy Competition winner and the first headliner Michaelis opened for. Louie Anderson said of Cory Michaelis, “He’s hilarious but I think he is too mean to ‘Roze’ in his act”. Come see what Louie’s talking about!
