In regards to unanimous vote made by Celoron Board (5-11-15) to give Lucille Ball statue to the upcoming National Comedy Center
“We are extremely pleased with the decision made by the Celoron Board today. We are excited to embrace the statue in a different light; not as likeness of Lucille Ball, but as a tribute to what she was all about making people laugh. This piece of comedy history has made millions of people laugh since going viral, and we look forward to working with the board of Celoron to find creative ways to showcase it in Comedy Center Park and the upcoming National Comedy Center, set to break ground during this year’s Lucille Ball Comedy Festival, and open in August 2016.” Tom Benson, National Comedy Center chairmen
