Jay Leno may be retired from his gig hosting NBC's 'Tonight Show,' but he's about to get a huge honor. The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is presenting him with the 17th annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. He'll receive the prize, which is named in honor of one of the world's great humorists, at a gala performance Oct. 19 at the Kennedy Center, where loads of stars will show up to toast -- and roast -- the comedian.
