Adam Sandler Honoured With Mark Twain Prize: Stars Pay Tribute At Ceremony

Adam Sandler was honoured with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humour on Sunday night.

An array of the star’s A-list friends and co-stars were in attendance to share heartfelt tributes at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. bash.

Chris Rock, Jennifer Aniston, Ben Stiller, Drew Barrymore, Pete Davidson, Conan O’Brien and Dana Carvey and more were among those to turn up to mark the occasion.

Sandler’s mother, Judy, also recalled moments from his childhood, as his wife, Jackie, gave a heartfelt speech about it being “love at first sight” before they tied the knot back in 2003.

She added, “I would like to celebrate the real Adam. The Pepto Bismol-chugging … air conditioning-blasting … backyard-peeing … disrupter.

“And, yes, he’s just as funny in real life as he is in the movies,” Jackie went on, joking he screams more off-screen.

She told the crowd, “And he’s just as good in bed as you’ve all imagined for so long. Adam, whether you’re awake or not, it’s always fantastic.”

Sandler joins a long list of celebs, including Tina Fey, Will Ferrell and Dave Chappelle, who have all previously been handed the prestigious honour.
