Here's how Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Conan O'Brien, Jennifer Aniston, and more honored the Sandman as he received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

Outside the laughs, Sandler is recognized for his decency, loyalty, and strong work ethic.

Sandlers' former roommate Judd Apatow took a page from the opening of Funny People and showed a home video clip of Sandler prank phone calling a local deli, hassling them over their pickle sandwich selection.

Meanwhile, Sandler's own mother Judy painted a wholesome picture of what it was like raising the comedian as he grew up in New Hampshire.

In one funny impromptu moment, Sandler gently laughed and called out one of his daughters for clearly zoning out in the audience during his speech just as he was addressing his love for her.
