The center announced Wednesday that Cosby, 71, will be honored in the fall with the 12th annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. Some of the biggest names in comedy will salute Cosby on stage in Washington on Oct. 26.

The award honors people who have had an influence on society in ways similar to Twain, a satirist, commentator and storyteller.
