by HFPA October 3, 2010

The Kennedy Center will present its 13th annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor to Tina Fey on Nov. 8 in Washington.
Fey is the star, executive producer and a writer of "30 Rock," for which she's won two Golden Globes.
She has starred in two feature films -- "Date Night" and "Baby Mama" -- as well as voicing characters for two animated features. She got her start with the Chicago improv company The Second City and was a writer and performer on "Saturday Night Live" for nine seasons.
Fey is also at work on a book of humorous essays for Little Brown; she signed the deal, rumored to be worth more than $5 million in the fall of 2008.
Previous recipients of the Mark Twain Prize include Bill Cosby, George Carlin, Steve Martin, Carl Reiner and Bob Newhart; the first honoree was Richard Pryor.
