The Funniest Man in America coming Oct. 15th

On October 15th, James Gregory, who has been performing home-spun comedy to sold-out crowds for over 25 years, will perform at the Pickens High Performing Arts Center.

The show at 7 p.m. will benefit the PHS Tip-Off Club. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at many local businesses; see ad in this week’s issue for list.

“Refusing the vulgar and profane, Gregory instead relies on a wry sense of the absurd, a southern accent and universal story-telling, often drawn from his own life, to create an evening of non-stop laughter,” according to his website,


According to reviews, “the essence of James Gregory’s comedy: rib-tickling reflections on life from the front porch.

Gregory has been called a master storyteller and world class comedian.

Gregory was born in a rural area about twenty five miles east of Atlanta. He got his first job at the age of twelve at a small country grocery store. By the time he was fifteen, he was working thirty-seven hours a week, as well as going to school. As an

adult, James has worked for the U.S. Postal Service, the Department of Defense, and spent almost ten years as a salesman before discovering the wonderful world of stand- up comedy according to his website.

The website notes that Gregory is not politically correct. “The James Gregory show turns the clock back to a time when life was simpler; to a better time, before the death of common sense; a time when people sat on the front porch and actually talked to each other without a cell phone in their ear,” according to one description.

Gregory can be heard on radio in syndicated shows that reach 220 cities every week.
