The National Comedy Center

The museum of comedy...the National Comedy Center is now open in Jamestown, N.Y...ya know Lucille Ball's hometown:

This 37,000-square-foot, $50 million facility features artifacts and interactive exhibits that shed light on the creative processes of George Carlin, Rose Marie, Red Skelton, Joan Rivers and many more.  It is the first state-of-the-art museum dedicated to telling the vital story of comedy in America.

The museum celebrates comedy’s great minds and unique voices, from Charlie Chaplin to Dave Chappelle. Exclusive collections and world-class exhibits give comedy fans an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at the time-honed creative processes that have elevated entertainment to an art.

There are 50 immersive exhibits that take visitors on an interactive journey through comedy history, from early vaudeville acts to the latest viral memes. Cutting-edge personalization technology makes the entire experience unique.

After creating a humor profile, visitors can explore content tailored to their individual tastes, from broad slapstick to edgy satire. Along with educational games and fun competitions, guests can step into the shoes of comedy pros, trying their hand at cartooning, comedy writing, live stand-up, and faux pie fights—or simply cheer on their friends.

Visitors will leave the museum with a profound appreciation for comedy icons and innovators, as well as the tremendous influence of humor on how we think, live, and laugh.

“There's something for everybody whether you're a casual consumer of comedy, a hard-core nerd or anyone in between,” says the center's executive director, Journey Gunderson. “You can stand in the presence of the DNA of some of the greatest comedians of all time.”

We ❤️ANYTHING that celebrates comedy and the legends that made it, xoxox.
