    Commenting on the prize, Stewart said, “I am truly honored to receive this award. I have long admired and been influenced by the work of Mark Twain, or, as he was known by his given name, Samuel Leibowitz.”
    “For more than three decades, Jon Stewart has brightened our lives and challenged our minds as he delivers current events and social satire with his trademark wit and wisdom. For me, tuning into his television programs over the years has always been equal parts entertainment and truth”
    - Deborah F. Rutter, Kennedy Center President
    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.
    As a recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, Stewart received a copy of an 1884 bronze portrait bust of Mark Twain sculpted by Karl Gerhardt (1853-1940). Previous recipients can be seen by scrolling down this page.

    When you love and admire someone it just pours out of you so effortlessly, and Dave showed that with such incredible passion it made me choke up. What an incredible tribute.

    Dave's story telling + stage presence is really topnotch. He can give a heartfelt speech to a dear friend but still keeps reminding everyone what's he really good at.

    Dave’s presence on the stage is frighteningly good. His timing, his choice of words, with a few (or a lot of) moments of comedy… it’s truly something special.

    “I’m sorry I got it before you, but I’m your lucky lead-in”. The way he brought that line back full circle, this man is a master story teller and comedian.

    Dave has incredible timing. A great quality about that guy is he isn't afraid to show his human side when the camera is on. He's not the 100mph comedian cracking a joke every 2 seconds because he feels he needs to. He is rock solid.

    Not for nothing do many call Dave the GOAT! The timing, the oratory, the language, the humor, the philosophy, and most of all the genuineness of how Dave came across - PERFECT!

    Dave is a class act through and through. Well spoken, genuine, and poetic. For a man who didn't write a speach he knocked it put of the park

    Did you see the sincerity in that mans eyes, and words? That was one of the greatest tributes I've EVER seen, and it came from one of the MOST sincere men on the planet. These are two people that America should be proud of. Protect these men from all foes. Thank you for that Dave, and thank you for EVERYTHING Jon. Much love from the little guy...
