JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WKBW) — The National Comedy Center announced Monday it has added a second show for comedian John Mulaney.

The 2019 Lucille Ball Comedy Festival is expected to be the biggest ever, with four headliner shows. It will take place over two days at Jamestown's Northwest Arena in August. The National Comedy Center museum complex opened as a new visitor attraction last August.

Called "one of the best stand-up comics alive" by Entertainment Weekly, Mulaney will perform a second show on Friday, August 9 at 9:30pm following his sold-out 7pm show. Both Mulaney and Sebastian Maniscalco broke festival records by selling out their shows on the first day of being on sale to the public. Recently, Maniscalco also added a second show.

Tickets for Mulaney's second show go on pre-sale for National Comedy Center members starting Wednesday, May 1st at noon. For the public, tickets go on sale Friday, May 3rd at noon at ComedyCenter.org.
