Legislation designating Jamestown’s National Comedy Center as the official “National Comedy Center” of the United States has passed in the U.S. Congress and has been signed into law, according to a news release.
U.S. Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, as well as Congressman Tom Reed, announced that it became official when the 2019 Lands Package was signed.
The National Comedy Center opened in August 2018.
In the news release, Schumer, Gillibrand and Reed said their bill will “help solidify the facility as a civic landmark and cultural institution, and the home of comedy in the United States.”
