The event creator says
Two of the best comedians in the region will be taking the stage on Thursday May 7th at 8pm in the historic Columbia City Theater.

Born in Utah, based in Seattle, Emmett Montgomery is a storyteller, comedian and artist who first found the stand-up stage in 2004 and has been failing beautiful ever since. Emmett has been involved in a lot of things including critically acclaimed comedy collectives, post apocalyptic variety shows, underground wrestling leagues and family friendly comedy nights in pizza restaurants. Mr. Montgomery has been featured the film "Seattle Komedy Documentary", the coffee table book "Seattle 100: a portrait of a city" and multiple festivals including Bumbershoot and the Bridgetown Comedy and Sasquatch festivals. In addition to wandering the country telling jokes he currently curates and hosts a love letter to Seattle in the form of variety show/sharing party entitled "Weird and Awesome with Emmett Montgomery" at the beloved Annex Theatre and is a member of the Seattle chapter of the Bushwick Book Club, a collection of musicians and artists that create and perform original works based on literary sources. Emmett lives with his beautiful wife and hideous cat in a refurbished motel built specifically for the 1962 Seattle Worlds Fair and enjoys making puppets.

A teacher by day and comic by night, Cory Michaelis keeps his act edgy enough to keep the audience from feeling like they're in his 10th grade History class. He cleverly tells short stories and jokes that try to get audiences to think but are silly and absurd as well. Cory is a regular in all of the clubs in the Pacific Northwest and has headlined clubs, colleges, casinos, and weird bars all over the country. He didn't win the 2013 World Series of Comedy (semi-finals), the 2012 Seattle International Comedy Competition (SICC), or the 2014 Tacoma Comedy Contest (2nd) but he took another crack at the SICC and made the 2014 finals. Cory is proud to say he has brought a great comedy show to his hometown of Everett, Washington as host and producer of "Everett Comedy Night", a premier comedy show that is in its third year of monthly sold out shows.

We are also lucky to have Claire Webber on the lineup. She's new to the Columbia City Comedy Show but we know that you'll love her comedy. Mona Concepcion will be hosting this wild night of entertainment. Get you tickets early at http://2funny.bpt.me
