Kenney was to receive the award at a ceremony Tuesday night at the New York comedy venue Carolines on Broadway. The award includes a cash prize of $5,000.

Among the finalists was David Letterman for his collaboration with illustrator Bruce McCall, the picture book “This Land Was Made for You and Me (But Mostly Me).” The other nominee was New Yorker cartoonist Liza Donnelly’s “Women On Men.”
