The James Gregory Cornbread and Butter Tour 2009 is coming to Aiken at the Aiken Community Playhouse on Saturday. Comedian James Gregory, The Funniest Man in America, returns to Aiken for one night on Saturday. His show promises to deliver good-hearted comedy suitable for the entire family. "Anyone 8 to 18 to 80 can come to my show and know what I am talking about," Gregory said. "It will be the funniest night of their life." The Georgia native has entertained audiences for more than 26 years and has come to be known for several of his stories. "There are certain subject matters people just want to hear, like the funeral home gossip and covered dish society. It keeps people roaring in the aisles. It's what people expect, and I don't want to disappoint. And people always expect to hear about my fear of flying," said Gregory, who claims he has never told a joke, rather, he said, he tells stories. Gregory is looking forward to visiting Aiken again. SDLqThis is my second trip to Aiken. I have always told people in my travels some of the best facilities are not where you expect them to be. You expect great venues in big cities but not always the smaller cities. Aiken has one of the best, and I said after last year that I wanted to come back," he said. "Beef Stew for the Brain," Gregory's newest DVD comedy concert released last year, features John Boy and Billy and includes the never-before recorded and highly-requested Fat Lady Routine. "It is my funniest," said Gregory. Tickets to the James Gregory show may be purchased by contacting the Aiken Community Playhouse box office at 648-1438. For more information on James Gregory, visit
