Bend Comedy Presents:
– CORY MICHAELIS –
According to a bunch of girls he’s dated, Cory Michaelis will shock you with some of the things he says but do it in a way that you’ll still kinda find him charming. You won’t want to date him but you’ll want to see him do comedy again. He talks about his high school sweetheart and former wife, his new relationships, and his unique day job and co-workers in a way that he wouldn’t want any of them to hear. Cory just recorded his first comedy special “Collage Graduate” – 45 minutes of squeaky clean material – in Provo, Utah at Dry Bar Comedy and released his first album “The Collage Dropout” that reached #2 on Billboard and iTunes. He is a regular in all of the clubs in the Pacific Northwest, Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas, and headlines comedy clubs, casinos, colleges, and weird bars all over the country. He has been invited to the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, Oregon, the Limestone Comedy Festival in Bloomington, Indiana, and headlined the Idaho Laugh Fest in Boise. He was a finalist in Seattle International Comedy Competition and lost a bunch of other competitions too. And Louie Anderson – who he has been mentored by and opened for in Vegas multiple times – says “you’re funny, why do you always make fun of Roze?” – come see what Louie’s talking about.
