ASHLAND – This summer, the Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum will hold a series of adult-only evening events.

On Aug. 10, the museum is hosting a “friend-raiser” from 6 to 9 p.m. It will be a comedy-filled night with the comedic headliner, Richard Reese. Reese has been bringing laughter to crowds for years. He was voted “Most Entertaining” at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and won at the Great American Comedy Festival in 2008. He received much praise for his comedy specials entitled “Smoke, Jokes and Lasers” and “Always Laugh Forever Before You Die Yesterday.” In 2016, “Jetpack Tuxedo” arrived on digital platforms. As a tenacious agent of humor, Reese brings an original and unpredictable approach to his show. Creatively witty and intelligently silly, this comedian/filmmaker continues to delight audiences near and far.

The tickets are $25.00 per person and each ticket includes one drink voucher and access to the museum before the show. Cash bar open all night. Of every ticket sold, $10 goes back to the museum for general operations support. Tickets can be purchased on the museum’s website at

On Aug. 24, join the museum for Flight Night. This is a ticketed event with interior airplane viewing, music and a mixologist shaking up drinks from the 1940s.

The bar is open from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $25 per person and include access to the museum and one drink voucher. Tickets can be purchased at
