Scottsdale Comedy Spot presents JONATHAN GREGORY & Friends
July 29, 2014
About Jonathan Gregory:
As a three time Arizona State Boxing Champion and creator/president of a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Jonathan Gregory worked in partnership with the public school system to inspire today’s misguided youth. He produced and performed high-energy motivational speeches to packed auditoriums warming the hearts of many. As he settled into his new found career, Gregory grew weary of stupid kids, thus propelling him to change his venue, and pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a comedian.
Jonathan broke onto the scene at the age of 19, as a punching dummy in a Mike Tyson promo, which aired on Showtime. In an attempt to extend his fifteen minutes of fame, he shocked American viewers while portraying the victim of a crazed fraternity in E! True Hollywood Story Investigates: Hazing. He showcased Herculean strength when he sustained 96 paddles from a giant wooden oar. Still not humiliated enough, Gregory put his dunce cap on, and prepared himself for the worst. In 2008, Gregory’s talents were highlighted on NBC’s Last Comic Standing as Dick Dynamo, an intense personal trainer with a love for spandex, and delusions of grandeur. His outlandish character and sketch work landed him on Last Comic Standing’s top ten best of the worst episode. Ranking in at number ten, his status as the worst best of the worst comic was solidified.
Jonathan Gregory’s comedy although unique and different has been well received by a variety of audiences from retirement homes, to bars, to theaters, to World class comedy clubs. He spent over a year on a weekly morning radio program called “Think Tank Tuesday” which was part of the Morning Infidelity on KWSS 106.7FM. There his awkward take on the daily news brought laughter to listeners as they went about their morning commutes.
