America's Got Talent Wiki

Cory Kahaney was a comedian from Season 11 of America's Got Talent. She was eliminated in the Judge Cuts.


Cory Kahaney appeared in the first season of NBC’s Last Comic Standing and made it to the finale, where host Jay Mohr called her performance “flawless.” Other television credits include Comedy Central Presents: Cory Kahaney, The View, and many episodes of Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher. She also appeared on the fourth season of Food Network Star.

Her off-Broadway hit “The J.A.P. Show” ran for six months in New York City and continues to tour the country, re-named “The Princesses of Comedy”. Cory conceived and developed “The Radio Ritas,” a nationally syndicated radio show for Greenstone Media, a company created by Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda to provide radio programming for woman.

Her one-person show, “Having it all and other Myths,” premiered at the 1999 US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. “Having it all and other Myths” was subsequently produced as a half-hour special for HBO, leading to development deals with Warner Brothers and CBS. Cory has also been featured three times at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. She was voted best comedian in NYC by Backstage Magazine and Best female comedian by the Manhattan Association of Cabarets. [1]


Cory Kahaney's audition was never televised. It is unknown whether or not she was buzzed, but at least three judges voted "Yes," sending Cory to the Judge Cuts round.

Judge Cuts[]

Cory Kahaney's Judge Cuts performance in Episode 1107 consisted of joking about not using her feminine charms to get ahead and her having tried to play the "tramp card". Her performance was not strong enough for the judges to send her to the Quarterfinals, eliminating her from the competition.
