*Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and Arsenio Hall are among the comedians set to perform next month in honor of Eddie Murphy as he receives the nation’s top prize for humor at the Kennedy Center in Washington.

The venue announced Wednesday that Murphy will receive the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on Oct. 18.

Other comics on the bill include Trevor Noah, Kathy Griffin and Whitney Cummings, as well as stars from “Saturday Night Live” where Murphy had his early breakout. Jay Pharoah, Kevin Nealon and Joe Piscopo from “SNL” are slated to join.

The tribute show will air Nov. 23 on PBS.

The humor prize honors those who influence society in the tradition of Samuel Clemens, the writer and satirist known as Mark Twain.
