Steve Martin received the Mark Twain Award

Steve Martin received the Mark Twain Award!

Tom Hanks gave Steve Martin the Mark Twain award on PBS tonight, Sunday, November 13.

Tom Hanks said that Steve Martin defined who we were as people.

Martin Short played across Martin in "Three Amigos" and " Father of the Bride , Part I" and "Father of the Bride, PartII." Short said he admired his friend very much.

On clip of Martin showed him playing the banjo with a fake arrow running through his head.

Lily Tomlin sad he brought us to "sublime silliness and devine comedy!" She continued her description of her friend:" He has dachshund shaped ballons, a really big brain and abig heart with an arrow running right straight through it!...Everything else in him is rubber!"

Paul Simon of Simon and Garfunkel sang "The Sounds of Silence as a tribute to him and Dian Keaton sang a song to him. It was a beautiful show.
