Red Skelton Museum Grand Opening Today

One of the biggest stars to come out of Indiana would have turned 100 years old today, and his hometown of Vincennes is throwing a big birthday party.

Red Skelton went from a small home in Vincennes, close to what's now Vincennes University, to becoming one of the world's most famous clowns..

Ann Pratt is with the Red Skelton Museum of American Comedy, which holds its grand opening tonight just across the street from the house where Red grew up.

It has TV clips and old costumes among other items tied to Red's career.

Tonight's party features Jamie Farr, best known from MASH, who got started on TV as part of the cast of the Red Skelton TV Show.
