We are celebrating our “Opening Night Gala” at the wonderfully renovated Market Theater in Seattle (“at the Gum Wall”), home of the Northwest’s top improv comedy troupe Unexpected Productions. 200+ seats in an intimate setting, great lobby and bar (cheap drinks!) and an iconic Seattle location, in the Market, under the pig, and behind the gum wall.
We’re going to need a few drinks because this is the first of 22 shows over 26 Days at 18 different venues from Vancouver, WA to darn near Canada and all the way out to North Bend for the Final Night at the Snoqualmie Casino. 33 comedians from the U.S., Canada and over $15,000 in cash prizes.
Appearing Tonight at the Market Theater:
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.
Tonight’s Emcee: Cory Michaelis
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.
