Donned as the young veteran, Cory Fernandez is one of the fastest rising stars in comedy today. In 2004 Cory made his debut television appearance as a finalist on BET's stand-up comedy competition, "Coming to the Stage," with comedians Kim Coles and Bruce Bruce. Three years later, Cory became the first Puerto Rican on "Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam" on HBO (hosted by D.L. Hughley). He has since made his first transition to the big screen in the upcoming 2010 release of "A Couple of Dicks," starring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan, and directed by Kevin Smith.
After performing on the nationwide "Coming to the Stage" tour, Cory opened up for the "Teens of Comedy" tour. The Teens tour featured young comedians such as Lil JJ, from the show "Just Jordan" on Nickelodeon, and Brandon T. Jackson, from the film "Tropic Thunder," starring Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey, Jr.
In 2006 Cory performed on Bill Bellamy's "Who's Got Jokes" on TV One and "Jamie Foxx Presents Laffapalooza" on Comedy Central. In the same year, NBC/Universal held their annual nationwide search for the top ethnic comics in the country and selected Cory as a finalist.
Cory currently lives in his hometown of New York City and continues to perform at comedy clubs and colleges across the country.
