Read this: Tina Fey receives Mark Twain Prize tonight -- too soon?
Is it too soon for Tina Fey to get the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor? Ahead of, say, Robin Williams, Jerry Seinfeld, Joan Rivers, David Letterman, Don Rickles, Larry David, Eddie Murphy, Woody Allen, and Carol Burnett? A producer tells Paul Farhi the award isn't about quantity or longevity, "It's for a person whose body of work is defining of our time." And we might add: Calm down, it's not the Nobel Prize -- it's an awards show that the Kennedy Center created to raise money, and no doubt they sold a lot of tickets for this one. (There's a poll, if you care to vote your opinion.)
