For people who have watched one of the funniest women on television for years now, it came as no surprise that comedian Ellen DeGeneres was picked to receive the 2012 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, the event for which was held at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, DC (our hood!) this past Monday. SCOUT was privileged and honored to donate gift bags for the event, our Cool Clutches in Camo Tow… we like to think it was for our irreverent spin on the camouflage name, and it was no doubt a chic choice for the guests honoring Ellen that evening. CONGRATS to one of the pioneers for females in comedy, and here’s to all the funny attendees who helped make this a standout DC event:
John Krasinski; Jane Lynch; Sean Hayes; Kristin Chenoweth; Jimmy Kimmel; Jason Mraz.
