White will join "SNL" comics and alumni Jimmy Fallon, Fred Armisen, Seth Meyers and show creator Lorne Michaels in awarding Fey the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on Nov. 9. They'll join top entertainers, including Steve Martin, singer/actress Jennifer Hudson and "Mad Men" actor Jon Hamm.
Fey, known for her impression of Sarah Palin, returned to "SNL" in May when the 88-year-old White drew rave reviews as host. Fey was the show's first female head writer.
The award show honoring Fey will be recorded to air on PBS stations Nov. 14.
