James Gregory- The Funniest Man in America
August 5@7:30 pm$42 – $52
When you are known as “The Funniest Man in America,” like comedian James Gregory, the bar is set pretty high every time you step on stage. With more than 8000 live shows under his belt & numerous appearances on some of the country’s most popular radio shows, like Bob & Tom or John Boy & Billy, his massive tribe of fans will tell you that he hits that mark every time.
Gregory is a Lithonia, Georgia native & began his comedy career in 1982, introducing acts at the Punch Line club in Atlanta, one of the first comedy clubs outside of New York & L.A. Eventually, he was asked to perform his own routines there & crowds fell in love with his homespun brand of humor. Next, he started taking his show on the road. Gregory performed 8-9 shows each week, touring the country & building a loyal following. James has appeared on stage in 38 states.
When you attend a James Gregory show, you’ll get a break from the stress of the day. You won’t hear topics from the headlines or anything about Democrats or Republicans. James says, “My job is to take people away from that for a couple of hours, just to laugh, have a good time & try not to think about current events.” You may, however, be reminded of that quirky relative we all have, learn why aliens always land near our most intelligent people, see why a covered dish is a national treasure, or discover why the guy that repairs your lawnmower may be your best choice to file your income tax return.
You’ll hear new stuff, but also some of James’s classic material. One thing is sure; you will laugh and want to see him again.
