On Sunday, comedian Dave Chappelle was honored at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, where he received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.
Chappelle, who attended the event with his wife and kids, was showered with love from celebrity friends like Tiffany Haddish, Kenan Thompson, Lorne Michaels and Morgan Freeman.
The evening also featured performances from Common, Erykah Badu, John Legend, Yasiin Bey, Q-Tip and Frederic Yonnet.
While paying tribute to the comedian, Haddish called Chappelle “my mentor, my big brother.”
“Every time I step on stage,” Haddish said, “every time, I think of you. I’ve always wanted to make you proud because you are the greatest.”
