2024 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor

Comedian Kevin Hart was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on March 24 by the Kennedy Center. This award was created by the Kennedy Center to celebrate individuals who have “had an impact on American Society” in ways similar to Mark Twain. Twain, whose real name was Samuel Clemmons, was chosen in recognition of his role as “a social commentator, satirist, and creator of characters, Clemens was a fearless observer of society who delighted and informed onlookers with his uncompromising perspective on social injustice and personal folly.”

The ceremony was recorded and will premiere on Netflix on May 11.
