Today, Rep. Tom Reed (NY-23) applauded the grand opening of National Comedy Center saying:
“Jamestown is to comedy what Cleveland is to rock and roll or Cooperstown is to baseball. We always believe it is amazing what you can accomplish when you don’t care who gets the credit.”
We would like to thank Governor Cuomo and Senators Gillibrand and Schumer for their strong support in getting national recognition for the National Comedy Center. However, the real heroes of this project are the men and women of our community who worked every day to make this dream a reality. I look forward to witnessing how Jamestown — a place of rich comedy history — grows and expands due to the jobs the Comedy Center will bring.
