Tina Fey wins humor prize

Finally there’s some justice in the universe – Tina Fey, SNL veteran and star of 30 Rock, was awarding the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the Kennedy Center last night.  That Fey is still so young and has had a relatively short career is a testament to her comedic genius, as most humorists and comedians who receive this prestigious award have been in the business for many decades, and are usually closer to 80 than 40.

The event last night was attended by the cream of Hollywood comedy – Steve Martin and Betty White were both there, as well as Fey’s former SNL colleagues Jimmy Fallon, Amy Poehler, and show creator Lorne Michaels.
