Phoenix, AZ — Sitting in the front row during a comedy set with Jonathan Gregory is about the worst possible thing you could ever do in life. This guy knows how to work a room; picking out the weakest link and then devouring them with his hard-hitting, extremely uncomfortable, serial-killer-ish, style of humor. Nothing is off limits to Gregory.

I remember being at a party about a year ago with Jonathan. He walked up to me without saying a word. He then proceeded to look me directly in the eyes for what seemed like an eternity, then took his attention off me and gradually looked around the room, eying each person there. Then Gregory turns back to me and in a deep voice slowly says, “Which one would you kill first?”

With his signature black shirt, long hair and menacing facial expressions, this dude is creepy and it all adds to the fun of his act.

Gregory’s comedy, although unique and different, has been well received by a wide variety of audiences. This includes bars, theaters, world-class comedy clubs and even retirement homes. Gregory has over 10 million views on his YouTube page and his television credits include Showtime Boxing, NBC’s Last Comic Standing season 6, and E! Network’s True Hollywood Stories Investigates Hazing.

According to Gregory’s website, 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 commute. Gregory’s stand-up has been featured at the SLO Comedy Festival, Ventura Comedy Festival, the iO West Comedy Festival in Hollywood, Comedy Central’s “Up Next” Contest, Rooftop Comedy, and he was named Arizona’s best comedic writer by judges at the Tempe Improv.

So what is in store next for Jonathan Gregory? Well, I suppose that is the million dollar question. My guess: Prison or Conan.
