The location is Jamestown’s City Hall/Tracy Plaza at 200 E 3rd St. in downtown Jamestown.
ABC News 20/20 will be covering the Lucille Ball Comedy Festival (LucyComedyFest.com) and its “Lucy World Games Opening Ceremonies” including grape-stomping and conveyer belt candy-wrapping from the most iconic “I Love Lucy” episodes. Anyone may participate in the World Games during Party on the Plaza, including beer & wine, live band Party of Nine, and host Tammy Pescatelli, Winner of Comedy Central’s Stand-Up Showdown.
The Opening Ceremonies will be followed by the 8:30 Stand-Up Showcase with Host & Musical Guest Lucie Arnaz, next door at the beautiful Reg Lenna Civic Center theater. Arnaz, an Emmy-winning producer, singer, and actress, and the daughter of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, will host a night of rising comics as her father did as the first-ever host and musical guest of “Saturday Night Live” in 1976.
