Adam Sandler, the American comedian and actor, has been awarded the Mark Twain Award for American Humor. The prestigious accolade, which is awarded by the Kennedy Center, is considered the greatest achievement a US comedian can aspire to and has been previously awarded to the likes of Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Bill Murray, and Whoopi Goldberg. The award is designed to recognize those who have had an impact on American society in ways similar to Mark Twain, the distinguished 19th-century novelist and essayist known for his uncompromising perspective on social injustice and personal folly. Although the decision to award Sandler the prize has been met with criticism on social media, Kennedy Center President Deborah F.

The award ceremony is set to celebrate Sandler’s contributions to American humor and is expected to bring together the best in comedy.
