Eddie Murphy

America popular Comedian, Eddie Murphy, famed for his roles in films like “Beverly Hills Cop” and “Trading Places,” will receive the Mark Twain Prize for American Humour this year, bestowed by the Kennedy Center.

Eddie Murphy is the 18th humourist to be honoured with the award and follows television comedians Jay Leno in 2014 and Carol Burnett in 2013, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts said on its website on Thursday.

“I am deeply honoured to receive this recognition from the Kennedy Center and to join the distinguished list of past recipients of this award,” Murphy said on the website.

The Kennedy Center called the 54-year-old Murphy “the most commercially successful African-American actor in the history of the motion picture business.” Like many American comedians, he got his big break when he joined the cast of late-night variety show “Saturday Night Live.”

Murphy will be feted in a gala performance featuring fellow comedians at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall on Oct. 18.
