Comedian Will Ferrell was honored with the distinguished Mark Twain Comedy Award, and after he accepted it with roaring applause, he dropped the prize and it smashed into pieces. The band stopped, the crowd instantly stopped clapping, and everyone broke out into laugh. Ferrell immediately went into character, and was hilarious as expected. It’s only fitting to accept a prestigious comedy award by making a joke out of it.
