JAMESTOWN – The National Comedy Center was named one of TIME’s “World’s Greatest Places” in the publication’s September 2019 cover story.
The center was selected as one of only 100 new and newly noteworthy destinations to experience right now and one of only nine attractions to visit in the United States
“We are proud that the National Comedy Center has been selected by TIME – in a worldwide context – as a destination to experience right now,” said Journey Gunderson, National Comedy Center Executive Director. “We set out to build a cultural institution that would do justice to the incredible artists and bodies of work it celebrates, and this global distinction affirms that it does.”
TIME solicited nominations across a variety of categories—such as museums, parks, bars, restaurants, theme parks, cruises and hotels—from its editors and correspondents around the world as well as dozens of industry experts.
The issue hits newsstands Friday.
