  James Gregory, comedian - booking information

"Funniest Man in America"

James Gregory has a show of comedy routines and story telling. It is an act written, produced and performed for an audience of people who bought a ticket. Anytime he is on stage, they are getting their money's worth.

  James Gregory, comedian - booking information  If that is so, they will come back again. And they have been coming back and again for a lot of years now.

For more than twenty-five years, the unforgettable caricature of veteran comic James Gregory has stood grinning: his blue shirt untucked, his arms outstretched, a carefree welcome to a down-home, hilarious storytelling experience. The trademark caricature is the essence of James Gregory's comedy: whimsical reflections on life from the front porch.

Gregory tours 45 weeks a year, entertaining sold-out crowds in theaters, colleges, corporate events and comedy clubs from Atlanta to Chicago, Seattle to New York. "The most successful comedian America has never heard of," James Gregory entertains more than 10 million people annually, including the Coca Cola Company, Kimberly Clark Corporation, Hewlett Packard Corporation, and the American Red Cross.

His grass-roots following of tens of millions of loyal fans hear him weekly on radio shows like Rick & Bubba (24 markets, 800,000 listeners), John Boy & Billy (over 100 markets, 3 million listeners), Steve & DC (23 markets in 15 states) and Bob & Tom (145 stations, 4.5 million listeners). Without the momentum of a pop media machine, he has become a world-class, successful comedian.

James Gregory was born into a poor family in the rural town of Lithonia, Georgia. At age 11, he worked 37 hours a week at the local grocery to help support his family. "There was never a backup for me," he says. "I knew that everything I wanted in life I'd have to pay for myself. Anything you want costs something. I had to earn it on my own."

Gregory began earning a living as a salesman, but his real persuasiveness was as a storyteller - a hilarious storyteller. "It was an accident that I ended up in comedy at all," he admits. "I never had the desire, or else I would have started earlier." In 1982, his friends convinced him to do an open mic night at the Punchline, an Atlanta comedy club, and he was an instant hit. "I was 35 years old when I got my feet wet," he said.

"I don't do small town humor," he is known to say to those who try to pigeonhole his appeal. His is a front porch humor: he tells the stories we all know, wherever we're from. He makes fun of crazy family members and covered-dishes at funerals.

Ignoring the eggshells of the politically correct, Gregory pokes fun at everyone from health fanatics to animal rights activists, and his fans flock to hear him in droves. His success, like his comedy, has been initiated by the values with which he grew up.

Years later, it is this unique humor that packs the crowds into his sold-out shows. The absence of vulgarity or profanity sets James Gregory apart, and his stories are a carefully-crafted art. "I have lived long enough to know people, know life," Gregory reflects. "My comedy is based on my experience. I want to make the whole country laugh."

What other say about James Gregory

  • Entertainment Magazine:
    "James Gregory is in a class all by himself. His humor transcends all barriers – social, economical, racial or whatever."
     

  • Austin-American Statesman:
    "Gregory is a legend. Each time you see him, he'll be better than the time before. That can be said of only a very few entertainers."
     

  • Savannah Free-Press:
    "No one does it better...picking up small details and vignettes of American life and finding absurdity in them – this is vintage Gregory."
     

  • Weekend Magazine:
    "Not until James Gregory takes the stage does the room erupt. From the moment he opens his mouth, the crowd is with him. It is an exquisitely-timed performance."
     

  • The Nashville Banner:
    "He's funny, he's zany, his routines are hilarious. He could read the phone book and make it funny."
     

  • The Seattle Times:
    "James Gregory doesn't take the stage, he takes the room. You know from the outset that he's taken control. All this Georgia boy has to do to get a laugh is just stand there and clear his throat. The audience has fallen in love with him before he delivers the first line."
     

  • The Daily Texan:
    "To call this man a Southern comedian would be an insult to his genius. He can get more laughs from the set-up than most can get from a punch line."
     

  • The Daily Oklahoman:
    "He was on stage for an hour. A standing ovation brought an encore of another fifteen minutes. A second standing ovation brought him back for ten more minutes. Then he leaves. The audience sits there for a few minutes as if they're wishing Gregory's show would last forever."
     

  • The Anniston Star:
    "James Gregory is the funniest man in America, the networks and comedy kings should recognize him as such."
     

  • Birmingham News:
    "I've come away from seeing his act with sides aching from laughing so hard."
     

  • Health Physics Society:
    "You are without a doubt, the funniest man I've heard. Your performance was one heck of a treat. I think I can speak for all three hundred people in attendance by saying simply, you're awesome."
      -- Tom Oakes
     

  • Paulding County Chamber of Commerce:
    "I made a terrible mistake. I showed one of your videos during lunch and thought several directors might actually die from choking on their food or from being hit by food flying through the air. It was a quick and unanimous decision to invite you to bring the keynote address to our annual banquet."
      -- John Cox
     

  • Georgia Ophthalmology Association:
    "Well, you certainly lived up to your reputation. Even our guests from New Zealand and West Germany were impressed with your humor. Being funny and doing so in good taste is indeed a rare talent. Best of luck to you." -- Dr. David Hull
