    I'm confused, did he truly just dump the award on purpose? That's a weird level of comedy but I bought it

    It would've been more funny if he had dropped the statue one more time in the end after the speech

    The one thing I like about Will Ferrell is that he is so wildly unpredictable.

    $1,000,000,000 spread out over 10,000 years is still $279 bucks a day extra cash for winning the Mark Twain Comedy Reward.

    He can just do comedy better than almost anyone. It's a different kind of comedy. Very straightforward laughter. He might be the only man that doesn't have to say a word and u will laugh. Genius

    That exquisite sense of "awkwardness and uneasiness" most of us likely had as he starts to go after his wife then mixed with seamless delivery is his magic. This is brilliant and so very unique.

    Not really a big Will Ferrel fan or a fan of his brand of humor but he has staying power and has a huge fan following so the award is certainly well deserved. Congrats to him.

    Oh, and he has a rockin wife, IMO...wow.

    He is correct about Mark Twain's name. Or at least part of it. His real name is Samuel Langhorne Clemens.

  • B T

    As usual, Ferrell, presents the most obvious and middle school level of comedy content and shtick. He couldn't even do the bust drop right. His success, aside from a few sketches years ago, is a real testament to how general audiences can be satisfied with the least.

    Ferrell is kind of like Jim Carey in that they were really funny for a while then their shtick just kinda got old. And of course both of them got old and grumpy when they introduced their politics into their public life. More so Jim Carrey. He just seems like a bitter old man now days. Which is sad because he was great when he was younger and when he didn't try to push his politics on everyone.
