About The National Comedy Center

The National Comedy Center is scheduled to open in summer of 2018, and will be the first non-profit cultural institution and national-scale visitor experience dedicated to comedy, featuring more than 70 exhibits on comedy. The Center recently announced completion of its capital budget in what is a $50 million endeavor, funded by federal, state and private philanthropic support. The Center will celebrate comedy in all of its forms, educating and engendering in visitors an appreciation for the art form and its artists.

Design of the immersive experience has been provided by some of the most prominent cultural and interactive design firms in the world, whose portfolios collectively include the 9/11 Memorial Museum, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, the College Football Hall of Fame, SNL: The Experience, Universal Studios, and more.
