Sandler to receive Mark Twain Prize for American humor

The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts announced Tuesday that the Sandler would be honored with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at a ceremony in March. The prize is presented annually to individuals “who have had an impact on American society” similar to that of the 19th-century novelist and humorist, “who startled many while delighting and informing many more with his uncompromising perspective on social injustice and personal folly.”
