Watch the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor celebrating Adam Sandler on CNN.com or CNNgo.
The Kennedy Center's Mark Twain Prize, which is named to honor one of the world’s greatest humorists, was awarded to Adam Sandler at a gala performance featuring some of the biggest names in comedy -- including Chris Rock, Conan O'Brien, Ben Stiller, Dana Carvey, Pete Davidson, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Anniston, Idina Menzel, David Spade, and more -- on March 19, 2023, and aired nationally on CNN on March 26, 2023.
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.
“Adam Sandler has entertained audiences for over three decades with his films, music, and his tenure as a fan favorite cast member on SNL,” said Kennedy Center President Deborah F. Rutter about this year’s recipient. “Adam has created characters that have made us laugh, cry, and cry from laughing. I am looking forward to a laughter-filled evening like no other as we celebrate his career at a ceremony that is sure to bring together the best in comedy.”

Ben Stiller single-handedly defined comedy movies in the 2000s. He was the reason why so many masterpieces were made back. The comedy scene feels empty now, without Ben doing his thing

The comedies released during 95-04 were spot on amazing for that time, re-watching them now I understand the jokes and laugh but those younger than me finds them inappropriate, cringe, and offensive. It's was an era of every joke being acceptable as the jokes brought people of different backgrounds, challenges, and languages together. Now we can't joke about everything, people become divided and starts hating each other again. Stiller, Sandler, Spade, Chappelle, Murphy, Brown, Farley, Tucker, Brennan, Ferrell, and of course Sarah Silverman all led the way to unite people through jokes and laughs.

The golden age of comedy was Ben Stiller and Jim Carrey. They’re two of the greatest for me. Far above Sandler. They’re in the same league as Chaplin and Buster Keaton.

Ben is heavily underrated by today's audience. It's amazing how almost every persons presentation ends with a story that essentially just say's when they were in a bad place, Sandler was the person that either came to them all, or they all went to.

I totally agree with you. People forget that Ben directed Robert Downey Jr. in his second Oscar nomination. Also, Severance is a delight, possibly his best work as a director.

Those opinions are crazy 😂 Ben Stiller is top 2 best comedic actor with Jim Carrey. What are you smoking? Have you ever seen Everything about Marry, Along Came Polly, Starsky and Hutch, Tropic Thunder, Zoolander, Duplex, Meet the Fockers, Walter Mitty, The Heartbreak kid ?! They’re the funniest movies ever made.

@Slam Dunk Nothing but cringe humor in Meet the Parents/Fockers and some of the others, but Topic Thunder and Zoolander were great. I like Stiller when he goes "full cartoon" but not in semi-realistic movies where "the cringe is the humor".

Ben, you and your dad and a jazz musician helped me decide to move to NY. I was here with my late husband, on a trip to see if we really wanted to move here. So far we had hated much of it. We decided to take a break by going to see Doc Cheatham at a club. Waiting for the set to start, we saw Jerry Stiller come in with his young son, and were thrilled. Right after that, the music started, with "I'll Take Manhattan." We looked at each other and said, that’s it, we're moving here. Thanks for being part of that decision! 😊

Ya like I can’t stand the fake accent sandier does anymore but thinking back on his movies they really shaped alot of our childhoods. Same with Jim carrey in my opinion, makes me nauseous to see him still try to pull of physical humour and corny jokes at this age but god damn he almost couldn’t miss back then.

Almost thirty years ago, in the mid-90s, I got to see Adam perform in my university gym in Miami. It was a free show. The place was packed. I wasn't seeing any tv at the time, so I wasn't fully aware of who he was. I'd heard his name, knew he was a comedian who sang goofy songs, but that was the extent of it. During the opening act, people kept yelling, "We want Adam!," which led to a great joke by the opener, but that's another story. Adam finally came out, and it became very obvious that everybody there loved this guy. A funny, funny dude. Thanks, Sandman!

I rarely laugh, but Stiller was golden. 🤣 Loved him in Secret Life of Walter Mitty--a stellar movie and still one of my favorites (had to buy it). Didn't care too much for his character in the Friends episode, though, but love his other movies...the Night at the Museum films hold a special place in my heart...partly because he just clicked with Williams and also because I would watch the movies with my boys when they were young (I raised them, basically, myself). Congrats, Adam and Ben...both of you are awesome.😊
