WASHINGTON — Julie Andrews, Tony Bennett, Tina Fey and other stars gathered in Washington to honor Carol Burnett as she received the nation’s top humor prize at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Burnett received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on Sunday night in a show featuring top comedians and entertainers. The performance will be broadcast on PBS stations Nov. 24.

Burnett says it’s a thrill to receive the award named for humorist and satirist Mark Twain. She says she’s in good company with past honorees. They include Fey, Bill Cosby, Steve Martin, Lily Tomlin and Ellen DeGeneres.
