LUMBERTON — Tickets are available to see comedian James Gregory perform at the Carolina Civic Center in January.
Gregory, often referred to as The Funniest Man in America, returns to the theater in downtown Lumberton on Jan. 26 for one performance only. Tickets are $28 or $35 for middle front seating.
While his routines include such Southern subjects as covered-dish suppers, road trips to Stuckey’s, and the healthy aspects of fried foods, it’s a mistake to consider him a regional comic.
Gregory is also known for a style that breaks from political correctness, and much of his humor is centered on observations of crazy relatives and people obsessed with the slightest change in weather conditions.
He delights in poking fun at modern sensitive parents and out-of-control environmentalists.
Tickets can be purchased in person or by telephone with credit card or cash from 1 to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays through the administrative offices in the theater’s second floor (enter on Fourth Street side), or by calling the Civic Center at 910-738-4339. Tickets also can be purchased at the door.
The theater lobby box office opens for ticket sales one hour before the performance.
