Cory Michaelis & Andrew Rivers in Portland


Comedians Andrew Rivers and Cory Michaelis (the Bald and the Beautiful) perform one night only in Portland

About this event

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.

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 50 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 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.

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. He also produces Everett Comedy Night in hometown which has had 8 straight years of sold out shows.

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 DryBar 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 800lb Gorilla Records "For the Wrong Reasons" releases worldwide October 19th.
