The Veep star is set to get the 21st yearly Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts declared Wednesday. The prize, which is “named to respect one of the world’s most noteworthy humorists,” will be given to Louis-Dreyfus by her kindred performers at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall on Oct. 21.
