Commenting on the prize, Stewart said, “I am truly honored to receive this award. I have long admired and been influenced by the work of Mark Twain, or, as he was known by his given name, Samuel Leibowitz.”

“For more than three decades, Jon Stewart has brightened our lives and challenged our minds as he delivers current events and social satire with his trademark wit and wisdom. For me, tuning into his television programs over the years has always been equal parts entertainment and truth”
— Deborah F. Rutter, Kennedy Center President

The Mark Twain Prize for American Humor recognizes individuals who have had an impact on American society in ways similar to the distinguished 19th-century novelist and essayist Samuel Clemens, best known as Mark Twain. As a social commentator, satirist, and creator of characters, Clemens was a fearless observer of society, who startled many while delighting and informing many more with his uncompromising perspective on social injustice and personal folly.

As a recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, Stewart received a copy of an 1884 bronze portrait bust of Mark Twain sculpted by Karl Gerhardt (1853–1940). Previous recipients can be seen by scrolling down this page.

Capital One® is the Presenting Sponsor of this year’s Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for American Humor as part of the bank’s three-year, $3 million gift to fund Comedy at the Kennedy Center, a signature program at the Center focused on elevating comedy as an art form and uniting the community through laughter.

The 23rd Mark Twain Prize for American Humor is under the direction of the creative team from Done + Dusted, the Kennedy Center’s producing partner for the Mark Twain Prize since 2018. This year’s ceremony marks the 23rd year that the Kennedy Center’s marquee comedy award will be broadcast nationally.

The event was created by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Bob Kaminsky, Peter Kaminsky, Mark Krantz, and John Schreiber. The Kennedy Center is grateful to Cappy McGarr for his steadfast support of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor since its inception in 1998.

Most times it amazes me greatly the way I moved from an average lifestyle to earning over 63k per month, utter shock is the word. I have understood a lot in the past few years to doubt that opportunities abound in the financial markets, The only thing is to know where to focus.

I’m from Dayton and I lived through that shooting in the Oregon on 5th Street while my brothers and sisters of all races got cut dwn,Dave came immediately wit Kanye and Kim and Stevie wonder I felt like others wldnt have helped if he didn’t ask them …we had a A tornado land here and when it landed three or four others landed and it took out almost the whole town in several other cities Dave and Chris Rock was the first to come , I get choked up thinking about all this because we don’t get a Lotta help here and I’m sure others can say the same, but I can only speak about where I’m from …til this day he comes to town but we really leave Dave alone he comes in to town and believe it or not he walks everywhere alone in the rich and hard parts of town too…he is respected so much here …so much… it’s almost stoic…we love Dave a lot he has done a lot for Ohio….mic drop & doesn’t say anything about it, he even gave millions to all the families that lost limbs got shot or died…❤

This is nice, but how does no one acknowledge how the celebrities aren't wearing masks, and the nobodies in the crowd are all masked up. Pathetic.
