The March membership meeting is sure to please with Chef Ahn from Palette 22 teaching us how to make lumpias followed by comedian Cory Michaelis who will entertaining us while we enjoy our culinary creations!

Cory Michaelis has had quite the last year in comedy. In 2018, Cory filmed his first comedy special “Bad Teacher” – 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 the Billboard iTunes charts. He also took his act international - booking tours in Pakistan and Dubai. 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 America. 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 didn’t win the World Series of Comedy (semi-finals), the Seattle International Comedy Competition (SICC), the Washington Comedy Festival (semi-finals), the Tacoma Comedy Contest (2nd), or the Laughing Devil Comedy Festival in New York City (finals) but he took another crack at the SICC and made the finals. Louie Anderson - who he has opened for in Vegas multiple times - says “you’re funny, but why do you always make fun of Roze?” – come see what Louie’s talking about.
