Adam Sandler honoured with Mark Twain Prize for comedy
Actor and comedian Adam Sandler has become the 24th recipient of the Kennedy Center’s Mark Twain Prize for American Humour at an evening event featuring stars Jennifer Aniston, Chris Rock and Conan O’Brien to celebrate his comedy and career.
Sandler, whose movies include Spanglish, The Wedding Singer and The Waterboy, was celebrated for his comedic chops that, while not always winning the hearts of critics, have won over fans and generated billions of dollars.
Dressed uncharacteristically in business attire instead of his trademark shorts and T-shirt, Sandler, 56, said he thought his suit was baggy.
“I don’t know if this suit fits me or not, I just threw it on … for the second time,” he told reporters on the red carpet ahead of the show on Sunday.
