Headliner: Kris Shaw
It may just be a live microphone in a small spotlight, but when Kris Shaw steps up to it, the experience is unlike anything you’ve come to expect from stand up comedy. Kris is a storyteller who, with quick bursts of wit and carefully crafted silences, keeps the audience engaged through everyday observations and tough topics alike. His slightly askew but loveable style disarms and charms from the first set-up to the final punch line. There isn’t so much as a hint of meanness in his spirit, and that good energy spills onto the stage and beyond. You will find yourself laughing out loud, delighted at how easily you relate to this uniquely funny guy.
Opener: Cory Michaelis
A teacher by day and comic by night, Michaelis is so committed to his act that he tests it out at five open mics a day… aka 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th periods.He is now a regular in comedy clubs around Seattle and beyond. He was a finalist in the 2010 Giggles’ Laff Off and was featured on Seattle’s Evening Magazine. He has taken his act to the road to Harvey’s in Portland, The Gaslamp Show in San Diego, and many Tribble Run shows. Cory writes clever and edgy jokes in an act that tries to get audiences to think but doesn’t take itself too seriously.
