Julia Louis-Dreyfus later this year will be honored by the Kennedy Center with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, an award given to the world’s greatest humorists.
The “Veep” star will be saluted at a gala performance on October 21.
After one commenter noted to the actress that the selection committee “must have seen the bit in episode two where you sh*t your pants and then everyone has to get in the car with you,” she retorted: “I thought the same thing!”
She previously won Emmys for her roles on “The New Adventures of Old Christine” and “Seinfeld.”
The show is expected to return next year for a final season.
Previous recipients of the Mark Twain Prize include David Letterman, Eddie Murphy, Carol Burnett and Tina Fey.
News of Louis-Dreyfus’s latest honor prompted many well wishes on social media, including one from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
“You’ve brought smiles to so many faces & are a shining example of how an artist can contribute to our society,” she wrote on Twitter.
