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.

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.
