Hickory – Get in some laughs before the year ends with James Gregory, “the Funniest Man in America” when he makes his tenth annual appearance on the Main stage at the Hickory Community Theatre on Monday, December 31st at 8pm.

“I like doing the show earlier in the evening so folks can still get to their parties and celebrate with their family or friends,” said the comedian. “Besides, I’m too old for that kind of stuff.”

Tickets are $45 for premium seating in the first three rows, which include a pre-show “meet & greet” with James. Other tickets are $38 each for standard, reserved seating. Tickets may be purchased online at hickorytheatretix.org or by phoning the box office at 828-328-2283. The box office will be closed for the Christmas holiday from Dec 22-25.
