The Lucille Ball Comedy Festival, presented by the National Comedy Center, is an annual festival that takes place in Jamestown, NY. Lucille Ball’s vision was an annual festival of comedy that would support rising comedians in her hometown.
The National Comedy Center Tuesday announced that comedian Jeff Foxworthy, and Saturday Night Live legends David Spade, Rob Schneider and Kevin Nealon will perform during the 30th annual Lucille Ball Comedy Festival, happening August 5 through August 9, 2020.
Foxworthy is the largest-selling comedian of all time with more than 13 million albums sold. He will be performing on Friday, August 7.
And the Festival will mark the 45th anniversary of Saturday Night Live with Spade, Schneider and Nealon – three of SNL’s most popular performers. The “Legends of SNL” show will take place on Saturday, August 8.
Tickets for these shows, along with many other festival comedy events, will go on pre-sale for National Comedy Center members only – starting Tuesday, February 25 at noon at ComedyCenter.org.
Public on-sale date will be Tuesday, March 3.
