Program Highlights
Educational Programming
Our mission is to continue the legacy of Red Skelton through inspiration
and education and we continue to succeed in that endeavor.
• Our school tour program is growing, and we hope to double our
numbers in 2016. We had 11 school tours in 2015 and reached
488 elementary aged students through those trips. This is up from
two schools and 123 students in 2014.
• We will introduce an adult lecture program in 2016 that will explore
various aspects of Red’s life and career.
• Red’s Comedy Camp for kids continues to grow. In addition to our
paid campers, we are able to serve ten low income youth at camp
through a grant from Psi Iota Xi sorority.
The Red Skelton Museum of American Comedy has had a tremendous
positive impact on Knox County and the surrounding area. It has drawn in
visitors from across the nation and has enhanced the cultural entertainment
sector for this area. A few fast facts:
• Over 18,000 visitors have toured the museum since opening in July of
2013.
• The Vincennes/Knox County VTB has reported a dramatic increase in
tours since the opening.
• Other Knox County sites have noticed increased attendance.
• First Sunday of every month is free admission to allow people from all
socio-economic groups to visit the museum.
• The museum has had visitors from nearly every state and nearly 70 bus
tours per year.

Entertainment Highlights
Red was an entertainer in the grandest sense of the word and we keep
that legacy alive through our Entertainment Showcase and fun social
events throughout the year.
• The Entertainment Showcase launched in 2014 and has featured
performers such as, The Diamonds, The Nutcracker ballet, The
Amazing Kreskin, Ball State University Singers and more. These
shows provide entertainment opportunities for both the tri-state
area and tour groups visiting the museum.
• Our annual fundraising event has been very successful over the
years, beginning with Red’s Run for the Roses derby event, and
last year’s 50’s themed dance, Clem’s Kadiddle Hop. This year we
hope to attract an even broader group of fans to “Red’s Dueling
Piano’s” event in April.
• The annual Christmas Wonderland wreath auction features
beautiful wreaths created by area businesses and individuals. This
lovely December display is not only gorgeous and fun, but also a
fundraising opportunity for the Museum.

Our Mission
The mission of the Red Skelton Museum of American
Comedy is to continue the Legacy of Laughter through
inspiration and education.
If by chance some day you’re not feeling well and you should
remember some silly thing I’ve said or done and it brings
back a smile to your face or a chuckle to your heart, then my
purpose as your clown
has been fulfilled.

Please consider making a donation to
the Red Skelton Museum this year
by either becoming a corporate
partner, if you are a business
or by becoming a member of the
Red Skelton Museum. Although
both of these programs come
with benefits, the main
reason most of you will
donate is not because of
this, but rather because
you believe in the Red
Skelton Museum of
American Comedy
and you recognize the
impact it has had and will
have in the future on our
community.
Museum oƒ American Comedy
The Red Skelton Museum of American Comedy
presents a unique support opportunity for
individuals and corporations alike. The museum
is a self-supporting 501 (c)3 organization. We
rely on income from admissions, store sales and
special events throughout the year. This, along with
corporate and individual donations, fulfills our
budget needs.
