Will Ferrell Graciously Accepts The Mark Twain Prize For American Humor

By

Us average chumps won’t be able to watch it until it airs Oct. 31 on PBS, but Will Ferrell’s Mark Twain Prize ceremony sounds like a fitting tribute to how much laughter this goofy motherfucker has brought into our lives. John C. Reilly, Ed Asner, Molly Shannon and about a million other comedians semi-roasted the SNL alum as he watched on in a blue crushed velvet jacket, because sure. “His eyes. He has the dead, cold eyes of a doll … It’s how, actually, I fell in love with him. He has the same eyes as Charles Grodin and the shark from Jaws,” Conan O’Brien said, trying to explain Will’s appeal. When asked if he had any goals left to be achieved, Ferrell admitted, “I’m still hoping to start my own Kabuki dinner theater chain. Because everyone loves Kabuki, and everyone loves dinner theater. Put those together. Look out. Done.” You win, Ferrell. You always do.
