Tina Fey became the youngest recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor last night at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The 40-year-old star of 30 Rock was feted by a cavalcade of stars, including Steve Martin, Lorne Michaels, Jon Hamm, Steve Carell, and Betty White. Fey was primarily recognized for her Saturday Night Live parody of Sarah Palin. “I would be a liar and an idiot if I didn’t thank Sarah Palin for helping me get here tonight,” said Fey. “My partial resemblance and her crazy voice are the two luckiest things that have ever happened to me.”
