Gregory to bring the laughs

Written by 

A master humorist with down-home, hilarious comedy suitable for all ages paired with a Southern accent and gift for storytelling, comedian James Gregory will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 26, at The Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin.

In the early 1980s, Gregory worked at comedy clubs all over the Southeast, which became nationwide in no time at all. In 1986, he was dubbed “Funniest Man In America.” Some of Gregory’s most notable works include an album and a book titled It Could Be A Law, I Don't Know and a video called “Grease, Gravy & John Wayne's Momma.”

Gregory tours three days a week, 46 weeks a year, in front of sold-out crowds in theaters and comedy clubs as well as at corporate events. He is also a featured speaker for events sponsored by various civic and church groups. He is heard weekly on syndicated radio shows such as “Rick and Bubba,” “John Boy and Billy” and “Bob and Tom.” Combined, Gregory’s radio performances are broadcast in over 200 cities nationwide, which resulted in a grassroots following of millions of fans.  

Gregory has been featured in publications such as Atlanta Magazine, Country America, Music City News, Laugh Track, Backstage West, Southern Living, Goodness Magazine, and many major newspapers throughout the South. He has also appeared in concert with Kenny Chesney, Randy Travis, Reba McEntire, The Judds, George Jones, Ricky Skaggs, and more.

Tickets start at $17 each. To purchase tickets, visit or call 866.273.4615.
