Calvin Harris knows how to take a joke. The DJ/producer was on hand Saturday night at Caesar’s Palace’s 50th anniversary gala to accept the Future Icon Award, which was being presented by America’s Got Talent star comedian Howie Mandel. The chrome-domed stand-up veteran couldn’t let the moment slide by without slipping in a few dad jokes, including one that referenced Harris’ famous ex.
“That’s a nice suit. Who’s your tailor,” Mandel said, a friendly dig at Harris’ recent breakup with Taylor Swift. “See what I did?”
Harris got it, and was slightly amused. “You got that prepared, you had that one ready,” he responded, according to E! Online. Harris didn’t let the friendly dig throw him off, accepting the award with style. “It’s an honor to be here,” he told the audience at the gala, which included such stars as Tony Bennett, Jennifer Lopez, Wayne Newton and Donny and Marie Osmond. “I don’t do this thing that often. I don’t receive these kind of awards very often either. It’s a great honor to be here.”
