Bringing Chicago To The World!

My name is Michael Corcoran, and during my nearly three decades in Chicago, I have absorbed much of what the city has to offer.

I moved there in 1987 with a dream of being a Standup Comic. After several years of being a professional Standup Comic and Improv Player; I learned the city’s history and became a Lecturer and Certified Chicago Tour Guide, spent time as a Community Activist (where I became familiar with the infamous “Saul Alinsky Playbook”), honed my skills as a Singer & Blues Harmonica player, became adept at “Slam” Style Performance Poetry, developed my own oral and written Storytelling voice, and Co-Authored the definitive text on Chicago’s Film History & Present.

Now I am on a mission to bring what I know to Chicago and the rest of the world. I provide Chicago History lectures, Standup Comedy sets, Chicago-Style Blues Harp & Howling, Poetry Performances, Activism Consulting, and Storytelling of all sorts.

You can also buy a copy of my book, Hollywood On Lake Michigan, 2nd Edition: 100 + Years Of Chicago and the Movies.
