Comedian Returns to Sunrise Saturday
Comedian James Gregory brings back the funny to Southern Pines on Saturday, Aug. 4, at 7 p.m., at the Sunrise Theater.
Gregory does not "tip-toe" through life as if he's walking on broken glass or eggshells. That style is evident on stage as well.
"For more than two decades, the unforgettable caricature of veteran comedian James Gregory has stood grinning: his shirt untucked, his arms outstretched, a carefree welcome to a down-home, hilarious comedy experience. It's storytelling at its best," says a spokesman.
He is not always 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's success, like his comedy, is the direct result of the values he grew up with. And now, more than 20 years later, it is this unique brand of humor that packs the crowds into his sold-out shows.
The absence of vulgarity sets Gregory apart, and his stories are carefully crafted art.
"I have lived long enough to know people, know life," he says. "My comedy is based on my life experiences. It's real, it's funny, and the audience loves it. That's why I'm still in business."
Tickets are $32 for VIP general seating (first seven rows of the center section); $27 for general admission.
Tickets can be purchased at Sunrise Theater office (cash or check only) or online at www.sunrise theater.org.
