Carol Burnett to Get Mark Twain Prize for Humor

October 20, 2013



Award-winning actress and best-selling author Carol Burnett will receive the 16th Annual Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for American Humor Sunday night, during a celebration that also will see her saluted by her fellow comedians and entertainers.

The namesake of the former “Carol Burnett Show,” which TIME named as one of the “100 best television shows of all time,” said of the honor: “I can’t believe I’m getting a humor prize from the Kennedy Center. It’s almost impossible to be funnier than the people in Washington.”

Burnett’s show averaged 30 million viewers each week for 11 years, and won 25 Emmy Awards.
