Comedian James Gregory Returns to the Paramount on April Fool’s Day


BRISTOL, TN – Thursday March 17, 2016;  Dubbed “The Funniest Man in America,” Comedian James Gregory is performing at the Paramount Center for the Arts in downtown Bristol on April 1st at 8pm. Tickets can be purchased online or at our Box Office from noon – 6pm M-F or noon – 2pm Saturday.

A clean act for all ages, James Gregory’s humor harkens back to a simpler time when we had more basic common sense and less fuss about offending everybody and everything.  He may not be politically correct, but he’ll make you belly laugh.

James Gregory grew up watching stand-up comedy on programs like Jack Benny, Milton Berle and the Ed Sullivan Show. After some nudging from his friends, he started doing open mic stand-up in Atlanta and things just took off. Today he performs his down-home stories of food, funerals and funny relatives to sold-out theatres, casino’s and corporate events working 48 weeks of the year. He’s also a regularly invited guest on national radio shows, like The Bob & Tom Show, Rick and Bubba and The Big Show with John Boy and Billy.

Early in his career he earned the moniker, “Funniest Man in America,” but, he’s quick to tell you, “At that time there were only 13 states.” His jokes are squeaky clean as, he says, “My mother wouldn’t let me tell them if they weren’t.” It’s the kind of show you could feel comfortable bringing your date or your grandmother.

What’s really unique about Gregory is his appeal to people of all ages, races, creeds and colors.  It’s not unusual to see three generations rolling in the aisles. He comes off as that funny uncle that everyone gathers around at family reunions, because he has the best stories – and so reminds people of their own families.

Mr. Gregory has performed to big crowds at The Paramount in the past; he has developed quite a following around this area after delivering great shows to laughing audiences.
