Someone Wrongly Thinks Jay Leno is Funny

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Wed, Jun 18, 2014 at 10:14 AM

From Variety:

Comedian Jay Leno has been tapped by the Kennedy Center to receive this year’s Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

“Like Mark Twain, Jay Leno has offered us a lifetime’s worth of humorous commentary on American daily life,” said Kennedy Center chairman David M. Rubenstein. “For both men, no one was too high or too low to escape their wit, and we are all the better for it.”

Previous recipients of the kudo include Richard Pryor, Jonathan Winters, Carl Reiner, Whoopi Goldberg, Bob Newhart, Lily Tomlin, Lorne Michaels, Steve Martin, Neil Simon, Billy Crystal, George Carlin, Bill Cosby, Tina Fey, Will Ferrell and Ellen DeGeneres and last year’s honoree, Carol Burnett.

Let's vote on that.
