George Carlin will be awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts said Tuesday. Carlin, 71, will be the 11th recipient of the award, which will be presented Nov. 10, a tribute performance that will be televised by PBS. Kennedy Center Chairman Stephen Schwarzman said Carlin makes people laugh and makes them think. Past recipients of the prize include Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, Steve Martin and Neil Simon.
