The comedian who kept NBC viewers entertained on Thursday nights well after "The Cosby Show" was gone will salute Bill Cosby when Cosby receives the nation's top humor prize, organizers said Thursday.

Jerry Seinfeld will honor Cosby on Oct. 26 with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington.

Seinfeld will be joined by Chris Rock, "Cosby" costars Phylicia Rashad and Malcolm-Jamal Warner and others. The center announced the lineup Thursday and said the event will be broadcast Nov. 4 on PBS.
