JAMESTOWN – A new exhibit at the National Comedy Center in Jamestown is paying homage to a late world-renowned comedian.
Comedian Carl Reiner passed away in 2020, and in a continued effort to preserve his legacy, the comedy center is launching a new exhibit debuting on July 1.
Carl Reiner: Keep Laughing will showcase hundreds of never-before-seen archival materials spanning Reiner’s seven decades as a writer, director, producer, author, and performer.
Museum visitors will be able explore interactive stations that feature rare audiovisual clips, creative papers, photographs, and dimensional artifacts that intimately chronicle a lifetime of creative output.
On Sunday, which would have been Reiner’s 100th birthday, the National Comedy Center released images of select artifacts and documents which will be on display in the exhibit, including Reiner’s typewriter case and original, typed manuscript for the first episode of Head of the Family.
