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.

“Younger comics do what I call, ‘wokes,’ they’re not jokes. They don’t know the difference between a good point and a good joke.” I don’t think I’ve heard a better description of the problems of contemporary comedy than this. Damn. Thank you, Mr. Chappelle.

@Chris M Yeah, I agree. I don’t consider just making “good points” funny, unless they’re…uh…funny. Then it’s great. All good. I see “funny” too often replaced by “good opinions” these days. Too often, a comedian is lauded for opinions even if they’re not funny. Not comedy to me. Funny is funny. I also hate the hypocrisy of laughing at stuff that you agree with but then calling for the cancellation of someone you don’t agree with, even if they’re really funny.

I think the problem with woke, is that it's the same with incredibly conservative comedy, and it lacks any sort of self awareness. Dave Chappelle can put a lens on his life and just earnestly make fun of himself. Something the woke and conservative crowd can't do

I couldn't have asked for a better comedy duo.

It's obvious how these two guys love and respect each other. Dave is such an amazing storyteller and orator. Another thing I noticed is how much John's wife laughed and enjoyed herself throughout. Having a partner in life who shares the same sense of humor and way of looking at life is invaluable, and I am sure has heavily contributed to how grounded, real, funny, intelligent, and genuine the guy is.

@Ian D Not to mention - he paid for a pavilion during COVID so people could still enjoy live entertainment despite social distancing, brought a lot of big names through, etc. The developer was trying to connect Centerville or Circleville (I think? It's the one with 3 AstroTurf stadiums - one for football, one for soccer, and a practice field) and Yellow Springs. And the town of Yellow Springs was going to be the one paying the bill for the "affordable" housing - the developer only ever cared about possible ways to blast the valuation of any single family homes.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:16-18) God sent His only begotten son the MAN Jesus Christ who had the fullness of God working IN Him to shed His blood for your sins on the cross, died, was buried, and God who is a spirit raised Him from the dead on the 3rd day!!!!!!!!

Jon Stewart is intelligent and typically left middle left with his political views. Jon Stewart would be a small fish in a big pond if he tried politics. This is why he doesn't do it I am sure. I believe he actually tried if I am not mistaken. And Chappelle isn't funny without writers. His jokes are immature and hot the high school level of audience. Anyone else can see this and is not entertained by the juvenile lineup of 6 topics he has for jokes. Chapel is honestly not funny enough to watch for me. Chappelles show was the only thing and even it was bland at times and the jokes wore out before they stopped creating shows and especially rerunning shows for years on end. Ughhh. Comedy central was a waste of space for a good two or three years. Like MTV and jackass crew and Dyrdek and all that. Too much then they disappear. Haha. Then get fat and maybe die of overdose of "fun and financial freedom and free time".

Dave has matured to be the most _masterful_ comedian of our time. I see his name and I immediately click, not just because I know it will be funny. I click because I know whatever he has to say will be said in the most engaging, the most passionate, and at the same time the most humorous way imaginable. As a public speaker myself I will tell you it's no small feat to pull off all three simultaneously. Facts tell, but stories sell. If you're ever going to give a tribute to someone who means a lot to you, this is how you do it - engagingly, humorously, and authentically. Hats off to you Dave. Always a pleasure to see you speak.

@Noah Thornburg well, I may've employed some hyperbole, but would you say that you're certain Chappelle deserved to win the honor before Stewart? or would people's (genuine and/or coerced) concerns about minorities being represented, because white people win most of these things, mean that Chappelle's minority status might've played a role in him getting it first? I certainly can't _know_ that, which means I think I can argue his winning it before Stewart is meaningless. now, in this case, none can argue that Chappelle didn't deserve to win it. but is it clear in _all_ cases? I'm not sure it can be. I'm sure a lot of people (myself probably included) believe the rewards outweigh the risks, but in many ways it's a no-win situation. you can't fight racism without acknowledging race, and acknowledging race is definitionally racist.

I don't know if you've followed Dave from the start but to see how much he's changed and molded his craft, his delivery is amazing. He most definitely slowed his pace down, cadence so different from his "higher pitched", quicker material. There's a part of me that misses that older type of Chapelle delivery and I miss those type of "silly" jokes being more part of his repertoire, but still amazing to see how an artist can change, and challenge his stage persona as a means to travel to the version of him we see today.

Your worries (yes, anxiety), depression, suicidal thoughts, EVERYTHING will melt away and be NO MORE when you lean on God and put your trust in him! When I have physical pain, I literally pray and the Lord quells it, that I am healed!! Know that there is power in the name Jesus Christ! His name casts out demons and heals! People are bothered by his name. The world hates the truth and wants to continue living sinfully! God's children are set apart (holy) and righteous.

When you love and admire someone it just pours out of you so effortlessly, and Dave showed that with such incredible passion it made me choke up. What an incredible tribute.

I watched it all through my life, I remember thinking, why is a comedian doing the news? And then he got his own show and you know the rest. I did not know Dave and John were so close but it's not hard to imagine because they both speak truth and are funny as shit! The best of the best and doubt we will ever see anyone who can ever amount to what they have achieved.

I Love both of them and feel like we would be lost without them. Truly appreciate Chappelle’s reference to Noam Chomsky’s Manufacturing Consent to describe Jon’s show through the Iraq war. He truly kept me sane through that time.

Jon's laugh is so damn funny! I love it! Dave Chappelle did so great (like always)....had no idea they were friends. I'd love to be a fly on the wall when these two spend a night drinking together!

Dave was truly his lucky lead in and that hug made his whole speech come full circle.

Jon Stewart has always been a part of my television life. He was the only way I could follow the news. He was intelligent, hilarious, and very pleasing to the eyes. I couldn't imagine the amazing conversations that Chapelle and Stewart have. I just want to spend one day with the two of them in conversation, learning from two of the most gifted and motivational people of my generation.

My goodness the only way I can describe this is that we should all be so lucky to have someone who is truly watching & knows our best intentions regardless of what it may look like or seem to others. To be described in such a way that makes you honored to be a part of this crazy unpredictable world and humanity even though we all may feel like at some point we could’ve done more. It’s so special to just be appreciated for being you; genuine. Jon Stewart is one the few left of my generation that is unforgettable. His voice was always so huge. He said the things at a time that the ppl who were in the position had the obligation to speak on but lacked the balls to actually say. He was always funny, brilliant & possessed a timing that most will never ever have. He’s the kind of guy who you watch slip on a banana peel & just when you think he’ll go splat, he breaks on a piece of gum. So proud to have come up in a generation of two of the greats. Chappelle & Stewart are unmatched in their brilliance. True masters of their craft!! ❤️❤️❤️ Rant over !
