A New Upstate NY Comedy Club Will Feature Creepy Holograms of Dead Comedians

Here’s some creepy news: According to The New York Times, a new comedy club will open in Jamestown, New York next year called the National Comedy Center, and they’re hoping to attract crowds with their plans to feature a bunch of dead comedian holograms.

National Comedy Center chairman Tom Benson said the club will feature 10 to 12 five-minute routines from comedians and comedic actors of the past, and his hope is to secure rights to performances from comics like Milton Berle, Bob Hope, George Carlin, and Rodney Dangerfield so audiences can “go back in time and witness a classic routine in a setting – God knows where it might have been – and experience that as if they were really there.” Well, almost – they’ll only be missing the parts where the comedian can hear, feel out, and respond to the audience, and that whole thing where they have actually been dead for years. On the bright side, one comedian you can count on not seeing at the club is Robin Williams, whose will restricts his image from appearing in any form, including holograms, until 2039. Smart move, Williams.
