The National Comedy Center - Comedy Lives Here
The National Comedy Center is very much a laughing matter: the first state-of-the-art museum to celebrate the history of American comedic icons and innovators. Since we all have different thoughts about what we find funny, visitors get to experience comedy tailored to their tastes through an RFID bracelet. More than 50 exhibits let guests explore comedy history from vaudeville to viral memes, try their hand at comedy writing and stand-up, and take part in games and competitions. Guests can also go behind the scenes to see the process of creating comedy, and its elevation into an entertainment art form. Jamestown, NY (pop. 35,000), the hometown of the Center and its greatest champion, Lucille Ball, hopes to attract over 100,000 visitors each year. The potential economic and cultural impact of the Center has been deemed so significant, that it is currently being considered for Official National Designation by the US Congress.
