‘Funniest Man in America’ to perform at Pulaski Theatre on Friday, Oct. 5
It’s time to set aside your worries, turn off the TV news and head to the historic Pulaski Theatre on Friday, Oct. 5, to enjoy a night of comedy from the “Funniest Man in America.”
Living up to that moniker isn’t an easy task, but comedian James Gregory promises to deliver a performance that “will be the funniest show of your life.”
Gregory says he has been bringing down-home, clean, commonsense comedy to audiences across the nation “so long that when I started, America was just 13 states.” His moniker stuck after an Alabama columnist who saw one of his performances urged people to come out to his show because “this has got to be the funniest man in America.”
Gregory got his start at the Punch Line Comedy Club debut in 1982 after friends encouraged him to get on stage. The rest is history.
Pulaski Theatre’s doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show begins at 7:30. Admission is $27 at the door and $35 for preferred seating in the first seven center rows.
Pulaski Theatre, 14 W. Main St., was constructed in 1911. It hosted vaudeville shows, traveling companies and silent films in its early years, and then served as a movie theatre until it went out of business in 1991. A group calling itself Friends of the Theatre Inc. saved the building from a wrecking ball and had it fully renovated, with many original features still intact.
The nonprofit theatre now plays host to movies, concerts, live performances, children’s events, and more. For information on upcoming shows, visit www.pulaskitheatre.org or the theatre’s Facebook page.
