James Gregory

Comedy Club at the StarDome

The Funniest Man in America returns! For over twenty years, the unforgettable caricature of veteran comic James Gregory has stood grinning: his blue shirt untucked, his arms outstretched, a carefree welcome to a down-home, hilarious storytelling experience. The trademark caricature is the essence of James Gregory´s comedy: whimsical reflections on life from the front porch.

Presented by City of Birmingham Mayor’s Office Division of Youth Services at Boutwell Municipal Auditorium

The Smart Art Festival will expose Birmingham area youth to different cultural art opportunities available throughout the metropolitan area.
