For night three of Preliminary Round One, we will be at an old favorite, the Auburn Avenue Theater.
16 comics will perform, but only five will advance to the semi-finals, so every night counts!
The Auburn Avenue Theater is a really great venue because it’s one of the few in our contest where you can see all 32 comics in the same venue. It’s a preview of some of the best emerging comedy talent.
Performances at the Auburn Ave Theater tend to sell out, so we recommend pre-purchasing your tickets to a performance. Seating at the Auburn Avenue Theater is on a first come, first served basis. The Theater is open one hour prior to the start of a show for box office ticket sales and 30 minutes prior to the start of a show for seating. Ticketholders can enjoy a 10% dining discount on the day of the performance only at several downtown Auburn restaurants.
This show features: Anica Cihla, Kate Ghiloni, Abi Harrison, Samson Koletkar, Silas Lindenstein, Emmett Montgomery, Stephanie Oberto, Wilfred Padua, Al Park, Patrick Ramirez, Andrew Rivers , Will Spottedbear, Neeraj Srinivasan, Owen Straw, Rick Taylor and Kortney Shane Williams.
A teacher by day and comic by night, Cory Michaelis keeps his act edgy enough to keep the audience from feeling like they’re in his 10th grade History class. Cory 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, or the 2014 Tacoma Comedy Contest (2nd) but he took another crack at the SICC and made the 2014 finals. 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.
The Seattle International Comedy Competition brings two shows at the Auburn Ave Theatre with completely different comedians. This gives you the ability to see all of the comedians performing in the Competition at the same venue.
