Excitement and momentum are building as the National Comedy Center gets closer to its targeted Summer 2018 grand opening. This is the first national-scale non-profit cultural institution and visitor experience dedicated to the art of comedy. The experience will honor the craft and its legendary contributors with more than 50 interactive and ever-updating exhibits.

When you become a member of the National Comedy Center you will be helping to make Lucille Ball’s vision a reality – that her hometown of Jamestown, NY become THE destination for the celebration of the comedic arts. Your membership directly supports the National Comedy Center, the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum and the annual Lucille Ball Comedy Festival. 

The membership program offers various levels to meet the ability of all supporters and to provide exclusive benefits based on those levels. Join us today.
