It was a love fest at the Kennedy Center Sunday, a magical red carpet ride, a fun and funny night out with the stars, with the biggest star among many—Carol Burnett, 80 and getting younger—receiving the center’s Mark Twain Prize for American Comedy. Old friend Julie Andrews lauded her, Tony Bennett serenaded and younger comediennes showed up to acknowledge a comedic debt to the queen of television, stage and film.
