Congratulations, Carol Burnett!

Earlier this year, Carol Burnett was announced as this year’s recipient of the Mark Twain Award for American Humor, the highest honor a comedian can receive in the United States.

Last night, she finally got her award.

The award ceremony will be televised on November 24th (sources have said at 8 pm) on PBS stations across the country, so set yourself a reminder to watch!

Ever astute, Carol got in a good dig at the government during her acceptance speech:

“This is very encouraging,” Burnett deadpanned in accepting the prize. “I mean it was a long time in coming, but I understand because there are so many people funnier than I am, especially here in Washington.

“With any luck, they’ll soon get voted out, and I’ll still have the Mark Twain prize.”

To be fair, they probably will be after that government shutdown.
