The National Comedy Center has rescheduled its planned Lucille Ball Comedy Festival from this August to August 2021 in order to ensure the health and safety of festival attendees, staff and volunteers during the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

The precautionary measure has been taken in consideration of CDC, federal, state and regional guidelines for the presentation of large group events.

The new festival dates will fall on the same weekend in 2021: August 4-8, 2021. Festival performances by comedian Jeff Foxworthy have been rescheduled for Friday, August 6, 2021, and the Legends of SNL: David Spade, Kevin Nealon and Rob Schneider performance has been rescheduled for Saturday, August 7, 2021. All other comedy performances and Lucy legacy events have also been rescheduled for the corresponding day and time in 2021 as well. A schedule of events is available at ComedyCenter.org/Festival. More festival events will be added in the coming months.

Those who purchased festival tickets will have their tickets transferred automatically to the same shows, events and reserved seats for the 2021 festival unless the ticket holder chooses a different option by Wednesday, July 15.
