Mark Twain Prize for American Humor to go to Will Ferrell
Ferrell began his career on the popular comedy skit show, “Saturday Night Live” and will be receiving the 14th annual top comedy prize in Washington D.C. on October 23, 2011.
Ferrell, 43 years old, released a statement that said “I am truly honored to receive this distinction. I will now begin cultivating a Mark Twain-esque moustache in anticipation of the event”.
Since his departure from the long running NBC comedy show in 2002, Ferrell has starred in a long line of comedy hits, from “Blades of Glory” to “Old School”, “Talladega Nights” to “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy”.
However, his comedy is not limited to television and the silver screen. Ferrell also made his debut on Broadway in 2009, when he performed in a one man show in an impersonation of former US President George W. Bush, called “You’re Welcome America. A Final Night with George W. Bush.”
