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, Dyna Moe, Ian Roberts, Amy Poehler, and many more. In addition to Harold Night, Cory has performed on the UCB stage in a number of other shows, including Movie Night, MANEATER: The True Story of the Champawat Tigress, and Chaos Theory. Cory is currently a series regular on the Food Network series Giving You The Business. He also performs with indie improv team Fun Fun Fun and puts up the occasional sketch comedy thing all over the city. He probably thinks what you're doing right now is pretty cool.
