Will Ferrell’s Mark Twain Prize celebrated by Amy Poehler and Sarah Silverman — but not by Larry David (Video)

Will Ferrell was honored with the Mark Twain Award for American Humor and a sendup by some of the funniest people in comedy, many of whom Celebritology’s own Jen Chaney spoke to, on Sunday.

Of course, not all of Ferrell’s colleagues could attend the Washington, D.C. ceremony. So the people at Funny or Die asked Amy Poehler, Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis and a handful of other funny people to celebrate the man with their favorite memory.

In the process of sharing the touching notes the “Anchorman” star sent them, only Larry David discovers the shocking(ly hilarious) truth: they were form letters. Watch the clip below.
