Back in May, the Kennedy Center announced that comedian Will Ferrell would receive the 2011 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. And now we know which fellow funny people will be on hand to honor Ferrell during the October 23 prize ceremony.
The Associated Press is reporting that Jack Black, Conan O'Brien, Larry King, Maya Rudolph, and Molly Shannon will all tell a few jokes at next month's KenCen program, which will air on PBS stations on Oct. 31.
Also scheduled to show up for the former Saturday Night Live cast member and Funny or Die co-founder: Adam McKay (who appeared with Ferrell in Anchorman, Talladega Nights, and The Other Guys), SNL honcho Lorne Michaels, Paul "Sex Panther" Rudd, John C. Reilly and everyone's favorite pop-punk band, Green Day.
