- Niagara University
Gregory began his career as a playwright for hire. Originally writing full-length shows for the Woodbox Theater in Niagara Falls, NY, he soon began creating one-act and one-man/woman shows to be work shopped at Buffalo State University and Niagara University. He also provided scripts for local theater troupes including the Subversive Theatre and various outfits within the New Phoenix Theatre on the Park.
Having spent over half a decade in Chicago, Gregory took improv classes at both the Second City Company and the iO Theater (formally Improv Olympic). Shortly after just a few introductory classes, he formed his own improvisational troupe called The Human Touch. During his five years with the troupe he acted as head writer for more than four of those years.
A Fine Arts minor at university led to years of summer stock and Shakespeare in the Park (which, believe it or not, are not the same thing). Gregory also performed with a few touring companies and has appeared in community theater on occasion.
While in Chicago, he got involved doing extra work for a number of big-budget Hollywood blockbusters that were being filmed there.
Gregory contributed to various comedic sites including:
- Points In Case
Both passions of his, if Gregory could spend the remainder of his life traveling the world and making quips, he’d do so in a heartbeat.
