MUSHY'S MOOCHINGS: AN EVENING IN DOWNTOWN KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE

AN EVENING IN DOWNTOWN KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE

The firm (Smith Barney and friends) that handles my and my brother-in-law’s retirement fortunes provided us with free tickets to see James Gregory at the beautiful Tennessee Theatre Friday (the 13th) evening! We enjoyed a very nice meal at the Downtown Grille and Brewery prior to the comedy concert. Go over to Mushy’s Cookings, for a closer look!
Once inside the beautifully restored theather, beer in hand, we settled in for a great show. Judy and I had seen James some 15 years ago, but he was even funnier Friday evening. However, the old boy had put on about a hundred pounds!

The event was in support of the West Knoxville Rotary Club, who does a lot of charitable work in the area.

Should you get an opportunity to see James Gregory, we recommend you go. He is a hilariously funny Georgia boy and he does not curse at all…I think there was one damn…but people can be funny without using foul language.

Never heard of him, but that clip was hilarious. Where was that guy when the blue collar comedy thing was bein' set up? Maybe he'll make the next one.

Gallagher, Howie Mandel, Bill Cosby, Sinbad, and Steve Martin, all funny men that don't rely on being obcene to relay a punch line.

I have always loved the old comics because of the cursing now days. Groucho Marx, what a genuis, he cracks me up to this day!

That theater is lovely

Holy ol' Joe, I must be psychic! I hand't even read this before I asked about all that beer in my email this morning...!

Great clip! I don't know if he'll make it up to MA anytime soon, but my mother-in-law has a condo down in Gulf Shores Al, so I'll have to see if he'll be around when we head on down.

What a beautiful theater! Glad you had a good night. I could use a funny night out with beer. Sigh.

Ah, the Tennessee Theater...such a beautiful place. Have you ever been to the Alabama Theater in B'ham?

I've seen James once before at the comedy club here in B'ham. He's damn funny!

Mushy said...

No...never had the pleasure in B'ham Chuck, but maybe one of these days!

He looks as if he won't be around too many more years...gettin' bigger and slower.
