For over two decades, the unforgettable caricature of veteran comedian James Gregory has stood grinning: his shirt un-tucked, his arms outstretched, a carefree welcome to a down-home, hilarious comedy experience. It's storytelling at its best. The trademark caricature is the essence of James Gregory's comedy: rib-tickling reflections on life from the front porch.

James Gregory will play the McGlohon Theatre for one night only Wednesday, June 17 at 7:30PM. This show is presented by the Comedy Zone and the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. Tickets can be purchased online at BlumenthalCenter.org, by phone at 704-372-1000 or at the McGlohon Theatre box office.

James does not "tip-toe" through life as if he's walking on broken glass or egg shells. That style is evident on stage as well. He is not politically correct. Much of his humor is centered on brilliant observations of crazy relatives and people obsessed with the slightest change in weather conditions - now referred to as global warming. He delights in poking fun at modern sensitive parents and out-of-control environmentalists. Gregory has been quoted as saying, "If you want me to be concerned about endangered species, you need to convince me that we're about out of chickens."

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.
