Julia Louis-Dreyfus Gets Roasted by Tina Fey & More at Mark Twain Prize Ceremony!
Julia Louis-Dreyfus hits the red carpet at the 2018 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor ceremony held at The Kennedy Center on Sunday (October 21) in Washington, DC.
Before accepting the honor, the 57-year-old Veep star was treated to a batch of funny roasts from her pal Tina Fey, Broad City stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, Lisa Kudrow, Stephen Colbert, Bryan Cranston, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Kumail Nanjiani and Jerry Seinfeld.
“Last year, I was lucky enough to get an Emmy award for my performance on Veep, which was an incredible thrill — and it set some kind of a record for the most Emmys by somebody for doing something or other,” Julia said during her speech. “Then, about 12 hours later, I was diagnosed with cancer, another hilarious turn of events. I’m only half-kidding, of course. Cancer isn’t at all funny, but a big part of dealing with it has been finding the funny moments.”
“The old cliché about laughter being the best medicine turns out to be true — which is good, because that’s what the current administration is trying to replace Obamacare with,” Julia added – Watch some of the speech below!
FYI: Julia is wearing an Oscar de la Renta dress.
