Excellent point, but I don't think the differentiator is whether or not
they've worked in TV or film. Steve Martin is hilarious and has stage and
book credits of note - but Twain? MT utilized every medium of his day,
including pamphleteering and no doubt would have added radio, TV, film and
the Internet if available. To  me, the most Twainian humorist around today
is Garrison Keillor, and not just because I'm from Minnesota. Let's give our

own award.
