The National Comedy Center opened August 1, 2018 in Jamestown, New York as America’s first State-of-the-Art museum dedicated to sharing the vital story of comedy in America. Based on the vision of Jamestown native Lucille Ball for her hometown to become a destination for the celebration of comedy, the National Comedy Center showcases comedy’s great minds and unique voices, from Charlie Chaplin to David Chappelle. As a non-profit cultural institution, the
National Comedy Center was created with a $50 million investment, funded by federal, state and private philanthropic support, including partnership with I Love New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York State’s Empire State Development.
