Veteran comedian and actor George Wallace will be presented with the Legend Award at the 24th annual Trumpet Awards hosted by Terrence J and Nia Long.
The funny man talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about being honored along with Neyo and Will Packer and the women of Congress and how he paved the way for other comedians.
“This is probably the biggest honor I’ll ever get. To be up there with Coretta Scott King. I am just excited. I’m still taking it in,” Wallace said.
The Trumpet Awards air on Bounce TV January 29th at 9p EST.
