National Comedy Center Officials Wait For Funding

JAMESTOWN-Comedy Center Chairman Tom Benson presented information stating the Center needs more capital funds before their April 15th, 2017 goal Friday afternoon at a WCA Hospital luncheon for National Doctor’s Day 2017.

Benson’s presentation stated the construction’s completion and opening, expected for August 2018, is contingent upon the completion of remaining capital funds.

“We have at least half of the $25 million needed, but no more than that,” Benson told WNYNewsNow after the presentation.

The facilities involved include Comedy Center Park, City of Jamestown BPU Property, Gateway Station and 35,000 Sq. Ft. of attraction space.
