Cory Michaelis comes to Salem/Keizer and McMinnville on Feb 3rd & 4th!

PNW Comedy is excited to bring Cory Michaelis to the Willamette Valley on Feb 3rd and 4th!

Friday, Feb 3rd, 2023 – Keizer Homegrown Theatre in Keizer, OR

After teaching high school for 12 years, Cory Michaelis “retired” to do comedy full-time because he wanted to try out both of the lowest-paying jobs in America.

Cory has a Dry Bar Comedy Special -“Bad Teacher” – that snagged over 75 million views. His debut album, “The Collage Dropout,” was released by 800 Lb. Gorilla Records and charted at #2 on iTunes & Billboard (because it was the only album released that week). Cory has been seen on the TV show “Laughs” for his stand-up comedy which aired on FOX. In addition to headlining comedy clubs all over the US and Canada, Cory has taken his act global, doing tours in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Pakistan.

Salem/Keizer on Feb 3rd – WVCC @ Keizer Homegrown Theatre in Keizer, OR

McMinnville, OR on Feb 4th – Moonlight Theater @ 3rd Street Pizza

Saturday, Feb 4th, 2023 – Moonlight Theater in McMinnville, OR

Both nights feature a duo of opening comics coming from central Oregon- Katy Ipock and Carl Click. Katy Ipock is a force of raunchy aunt comedy and she currently hosts and produces stand-up shows out of Craft Brewery in Bend. Carl Click, whom some might remember from his years at KGW in Portland, cleverly combines stand-up and musical comedy for a memorably funny performance.

Plus Special Guest Grace Sophia! Hosted by Jordan Cerminara on Friday night in Keizer and by Jared Richard on Saturday night in McMinnville.
