Kevin Heart  Receives The 25th Annual Mark Twain Prize

The kennedy Center this weekend honored  reknowned comedian and actor Kevin Hart  with the 25th annual Mark Twain prize for American humour.

Notable  comics Dave Chappelle, Chelsea Handler and Jerry Seinfeld were also present to pay tribute to  Kevin Hart. 

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.

To be honored in this commemorative year feels surreal. Comedy is my outlet for social commentary and observations on life—I am grateful to the Kennedy Center for recognizing my voice and impact on culture. I cant wait to celebrate!

— Kevin Hart

The awards show will be available on Netflix on May 11th.
