SKL presents: Andrew Rivers and Cory Michaelis
Best friends Andrew Rivers and Cory Michaelis team up for the Bald and Beautiful tour together so they’re not so lonely on the road.
Friday, Oct. 14th | HB Social Club’s Slack Key Lounge | 7pm
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. Now in his 12th year as a comedian (he’s not THAT old…there was some overlap)
Cory has a Dry Bar Comedy Special – “Bad Teacher” – that snagged over 60 million views. His debut album, “The Collage Dropout,” charted at #2 on iTunes & Billboard (because it was the only album released that week). Cory was a finalist in the Seattle Comedy Competition which means he didn’t win and was in Season 2 of Netflix’s “Huge in France” with Gad Almelah.
His act is sharp and irreverent and not suitable for the high school students he used to teach.
Andrew’s very personal and fun storytelling comedy, combined with his exemplary work ethic has earned him high praise from some of the best comedians in the business. Andrew is a regular opener for Christopher Titus and has toured across North America and Europe with Steve Hofstetter.
Andrew was featured in the popular “Truth or Drink” webseries from Buzzfeed and his Dry Bar Comedy Special has over 15 million views on facebook. His YouTube pandemic special in 2020 hit 100k views in the first two months and his debut album from 800 lb Gorilla Records “For the Wrong Reasons” released worldwide on October 19th.
