The Kennedy Center recently announced Sandler would be the winner of the 24th Annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. The award recognizes people who have “impacted American society” in the same way as Samuel Clemens, otherwise known as Mark Twain. The center noted that Sandler’s work as an actor, producer, and screenwriter has undoubtedly impacted audiences across the globe.
Sandler started off with small roles on TV shows such as “The Cosby Show” before becoming a writer for Saturday Night Live. Eventually, the comedian landed a spot on the show itself. Sandler went on to star in his first movie, “Billy Madison,” in 1995. After his next couple of films, “Happy Gilmore” and “The Wedding Singer,” the actor formed his own production company, Happy Madison Productions, which has made many of his movies since.
While Sandler is winning one of the most renowned awards for comedy, he’s also stepped into a few serious roles. At the Film Independent Spirit Awards, Sandler’s performance in “Uncut Gems” earned him an award for best male lead. Once the actor receives his Mark Twain award on March 19, 2023, he’ll join the likes of Bill Murray, Dave Chapelle, Jay Leno, and many others who’ve won the Prize for American Humor.
