The Lincoln Theater welcomes comedian James Gregory

January 28, 2023

Get ready to have your funny bone tickled as the self-proclaimed “Funniest Man in America,” James Gregory, performs his clean humor at The Lincoln Theatre Feb. 3 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $58 for premium seats and $44 for orchestra and balcony seats.

Gregory has entertained audiences in-person, on tour and on hundreds of radio stations and television slots for more than two decades. He is on the road about three days a week, 46 weeks a year. As he reflects on the 20-year-old memories, Gregory says they provide a “hilarious comedy experience” and “rib-tickling reflections on life from the front porch.” Gregory does not tiptoe through life as if he’s walking on broken glass or egg shells. That style is evident on stage as well through his jokes. “I have lived long enough to know people, know life,” Gregory said, “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.”

Located in the heart of Marion’s downtown district, The Lincoln Theatre is a restored theater in the Mayan Revival style, offering year-round entertainment including live music, comedy events, diversity awareness programs, classic and independent film series, youth artistic camps, theatrical performances and much more. Originally constructed in 1929 as a movie palace, the Lincoln has long been a community hub.

In addition to the flagship Song of the Mountains, The Lincoln Theatre offers live music throughout the year, from casual open mic nights to big-name bluegrass and country stars.
