Cory Palmer

Cory Palmer is a New York-based performer and writer.

Cory was born and raised in idyllic Mount Airy, North Carolina, and occasionally returns to look at mountains and grass. He has studied improv and sketch at UCB since 2009 under the esteemed tutelage of Shannon O'Neill, Will Hines, Joe Wengert,  Ian Roberts, Amy Poehler, and many more. Cory is a featured writer and performer on The Incredible Game Show Showcase, a fun, funny, and very weird monthly game show hosted by Jo Firestone at UCBEast. In addition to Harold Night, Cory has performed on the UCB stages in a number of other shows, including Harold Night, MANEATER: The True Story of the Champawat Tigress, and OSFUG: A Fast Fuckin' Sketch Show.

Cory was a series regular on the Food Network series Giving You The Business. He also performs with indie improv powerhouses Fun Fun Fun and Dark Days, and puts up the occasional sketch comedy thing all over the city. He probably thinks what you're doing right now is pretty cool.
