Short bio of Cory Michaelis is that after teaching high school history and college readiness and preparatory classes for 12 years and doing comedy on the side, he is now a full-time comedian and substitute teaches on the side (mostly for the stories). Cory has opened for and been mentored by Louie Anderson who helped him record a 40-minute squeaky-clean comedy special "Bad Teacher" in Provo, Utah for DryBarComedy.com that has 20 million+ Facebook views. Additionally, his debut album "The Collage Dropout" was released June 19th, 2018 on 800 Pound Gorilla Records and reached #2 on both the Billboard and iTunes Charts (dang "Weird Al" Yankovic - didn't even know he did comedy any more).
Cory is a regular headliner in all of the clubs in the Pacific Northwest and a dozen others in the US and Canada. He works regularly at Brad Garrett's Comedy Club at the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas and has headlined many fine and not-so-fine comedy clubs, colleges, private corporate gigs, casinos, and weird bars and restaurants all over the country. He has done a bunch of prestigious comedy festivals and was a finalist in the Seattle International Comedy Competition. Okay, we fibbed a little - that wasn't the short bio, that was pretty much everything.
Come see Cory weave stories of his life and teaching into his fun, relatable, silly, and often thought-provoking stand-up act perfect for your college students.
