Lucille Ball Comedy Fest to Bring Thousands to Jamestown! (VIDEO)

The Lucy Desi Center for Comedy in her hometown of Jamestown will feature their annual Lucille Ball Comedy Festival on August 1-4, 2013.

This is an annual event that brings huge crowds to the far western corner of New York State.  Many will tour the Lucy Desi Museum, others will participate in the many fan-based events, and still other will visit Jamestown’s Lakeview Cemetery to pay their respects to the “Queen of Comedy” at her final resting place.

Among this year’s entertainers is comedian Bill “Here’s Your Sign” Engvall.  Be sure and make your travel plans early for this popular event as Jamestown’s population nearly doubles when all the Lucy fans show up to celebrate!

A previous year’s headliner was comedienne Joan Rivers (see video).


Where: Jamestown, NY (Chautauqua County)

When: August 1-4, 2013
