In an evening filled with jokes about Bill Murray's elusiveness and quirky personality, it was David Letterman who provided the most touching moment as Murray was honored with the United States' top prize for comedy. Murray, 66, received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor Sunday night at the Kennedy Center, joining several other "Saturday Night Live" alumni to win the annual award.Murray was a guest on Letterman's shows 44 times over the years, and the two grew close, even spending time together at Letterman's vacation home in Montana.After an appearance in 2003, Letterman told Murray that his then-infant son would be christened that weekend. Jimmy Kimmel, Aziz Ansari, Sigourney Weaver and Steve Martin were among those who ribbed Murray for being aloof, unpredictable and difficult to reach – and somehow still lovable.Other "Saturday Night Live" alumni who've received it include Tina Fey, Will Ferrell and Eddie Murphy.
