Actor Steve Martin is set to receive the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, a relatively new comedy honour established by the Kennedy Center in Washington. The 59-year-old Martin is scheduled to receive the honor on October 23, 2005, in a star-studded ceremony at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall.

Commenting on Martin reception of the award, Kennedy Center chair Stephen A. Schwarzman said in a statement Tuesday, "His creations, be they on stage, on film, or in a book, have created a collective memory of humor and joy for all Americans." Thus, "the Kennedy Center is pleased to give Steve the Mark Twain Prize for an extraordinary career."
