Company Member since 2005
Corey is a writer, actor, improvisor, visual effects artist, and teacher living in San Francisco.
He began taking BATS classes in 1996 and performed with the Sunday Players and Belfry ensembles before becoming a company guest in 2004 and company member in 2005. He is thrilled to share the Bayfront stage with so many committed and talented performers, including his wife, Jenny Rosen.
Corey’s interests extend off the stage to writing, producing, directing, and animating for the stage and screen. His short films (including Keep Clear, Sockrotika VII: The Smell of Socks, and My Brother . . . the Stormtrooper) have screened at festivals around the globe. When not improvising, he can be found at Tippett Studio in Berkeley, creating visual effects for blockbuster movies.
In 2001, Corey created a variety show called The A**hole Monologues: A Comedy for Anyone Who Has One, Knows One, or Is One as a benefit for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. The show enjoyed sold out runs (no pun intended) in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Aspen, and New York.
Corey hosts San Francisco’s monthly storytelling series, “The Moth,” at the Rickshaw Stop.
Corey is represented by JE Talent.
