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.

I’ve always loved the fact that he could always make a joke come full circle. It seems like he’s been letting it go longer and longer every now and again. Shiiiet, even his coke joke, came back full circle. Hahaha just played as I was writing this out.

@Cockeyed Optimista he did the 2017 SNL Monologue with only a couple jokes he thought of when he heard current events on the news and worked with it, his ability to recognize a joke and then weave it in and out of his speech is insane and he's also genuine too

@SirMo Thanks! I'm already following Burr and Louis CK and Norm (altho should dig in deeper with that guy, RIP)- i think i've seen a standup or two of Patriece O'Neil - will just check. Glad to see there was a connection, at least in your mind, and that there weren't that many (or any) new names.
SirMo Vor 3 Monate
@LacklusterOfficial In my opinion Chapelle's contemporaries worth also checking out are: Bill Burr, Louis CK as well as late Norm Macdonald and Patriece O'Neil. They each have their own unique brand of humor but they are all masters of comedy. Alongside Chapelle they belong to the top shelf.

"I'm not here because I love Jon Stewart, I'm here because he loves me." It's weird to hear laughing in the background after he says this. That isn't a joke, that is one of the most sincere heartfelt things Dave could say. Dave isn't there because Jon is a great comedian, or even a great friend, he's there because Jon would be (And actually was) there for him.

Chapelle has a delivery like no other. It's amazing to watch him work. He can be very sincere in one sentence and hilarious in the next. Nice to see Stewart and Chappelle have remained friends.
Blaisem Vor 18 Tage
His punchlines are slipped in so subtly they worm their way under your anticipation and slap you in the face. It's like the opposite of thunder and lightning. You hear the words, but the laughter takes a second to come in. With other comedians, your mind sees the punchline coming a split second before the joke lands, so your expectations soar instantaneously. Your guard is up subconsciously, even if you don't want it to be. The joke can't help but be deflated a little by being compared to your peak expectation. Chappelle has that shifty jab that hits you between the eyes and is already gone before the feeling can set in. And all you can do is laugh about it.

There's a reason these two men have always been two of my most drawn to comedians. In a world where people push their agenda at times and try to ignore the other side to make their points, these two both have always been so intelligent in what they want to get across and how they feel about things. Some of the best political interviews for me ever were done by Jon Stewart on the Daily Show. Even those you knew he strongly opposed he conducted those interviews so kindly and so professionally. He didn't try to put them in a bad spot instead he sat there, sometimes far past the actual tv time and just talked to them. Its like both sides by the end of the interview had learned something from it.

@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.

Chappelle is the greatest, and his humility is off the scales Jon Stewart is a true legend 👏

For Chappelle to not have written that ahead of time... what a perfect speech!! No writers could have written it better.

What a beautiful heartfelt tribute to Jon Stewart. Today, I saw thoughtfulness and intelligence of Dave Chappelle like never before. Suddenly, I have become a fan.

Dave’s presence on the stage is frighteningly good. His timing, his choice of words, with a few (or a lot of) moments of comedy… it’s truly something special.

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.

He has a good point about Good Points and Good Jokes. Weak, flaccid, Jokes with no point is garbage. But if you have a good point and are funny in delivery, it's both strong and funny.

If you were to tell me that I'd tear up at Chappelle giving a speech about Jon Stewart, there's no way I would have believed you. And yet, here I am.

"I am not here because I love Jon, I am here because he loves me". Some thought that was a joke but it wasn't, it was a nice complement to Jom

I'm greatful to have lived in the same era as Dave, he's so much more than a comedian.

We in Dayton, Ohio were at an all time low, after the mass shooting that occurred here, and Dave Chapelle, and Jon Stewart came in totally lifted our spirits. Two awesome men.

What a bad ass speech by Dave. What he's saying is true, Jon Stewart is a voice we can trust. Thank you both.

Dave and John have served the people so wonderfully over the years, I can see why these two get along so well a life dedicated to the craft of making others happy.

Chappelle has to be one of the most intuative, well spoken, brilliant comedians on culture of all time. This guy never plans out a spot but speaks from listening, learning and speaking from the heart. What a Bromance if I ever saw one. Beautiful speech.

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.

@bakersupreme2010 If that was my daughter I would have been extremely uncomfortable, angry after the fact. I don't believe I'm too out of line to feel that way.

@bakersupreme2010I appreciate the attentiveness and attention span you have clearly stretching quite a bit beyond what most people(specifically Americans) can claim. To your points though, it wasn't as much about what he said, as it was the way he said it. She said "I'm 17" and he very awkwardly responded with "coool"...With a strange awkward pause and smile after clearly making her immediately uncomfortable. I mean everyone in the room knew why he said that. Whether it was more about the silence after or the comment itself is irrelevant to me, as I PERSONALLY see that as creep 101. What's so "cooool" about her being 17 and glaring at her akwardly after that for a good 5 seconds? Why was that a moment worth making? Let her answer that she's a minor, maybe show that you're impressed in what she's achieved so young, then move on. But no he proceeded to do that, and then show her in the Aerosmith video where she was inherently sexualized by the group(would hope you wouldn't disagree with that as they actually got in trouble for that, I belive by either hers or the other teenage girl who appeared in the videos parents). Do you have the answers my good sir?

I love Dave, luckily as a 17 year old male he felt safe around Jon in a disturbing industry and world where 17 year olds are always in an extremely vulnerable position. Too bad Alicia Silverstone can't share that same experience with Jon....Makes you see him totally different. Go check out that interview to see the real Jon, absolutely sick.

Dave is one of those guys that doesn't even need to be telling jokes to be funny. He is just a gifted person that is funny naturally. The way he talks, his body language, his tone of voice, everything about the guy is just hilarious.
