Will Ferrell To Receive 2011 Mark Twain Prize for Humor


Apparently I’m not the only one that thinks Mark Twain would have loved Land of The Lost, seeing as how Will Farrell will receive the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor this fall. Ferrell will receive the award at a ceremony at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on October 23.  Past recipients have included Richard Pryor, Jonathan Winters, Whoopi Goldberg, Bill Cosby and last year’s recipient Tina Fey. Ferrell said that he is “truly honored to receive this distinction,” and in preparation for the event “I will now begin cultivating a Mark Twain-esque mustache in anticipation of the event.” Quickly! Your mustache only has five months to achieve such an advanced state of luster and luxuriousness!
