What happens every other year, helps Autism programs and has too many stars!? It’s “Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together For Autism Programs”. The benefit event is back this year hosted by Jon Stewart. And now some of those too many stars have been announced. Joining Jon Stewart will be Bill Burr, Louis C.K., Jon Hamm, John Oliver, Paul Rudd and Amy Schumer all on stage at the Beacon Theatre. Also helping man the world’s funniest phone bank and taking pledges will be names including Larry David, Martin Short and Larry Wilmore. If you call and it turns into a very awkward social situation, you probably reached Larry David.
More names will be announced by Comedy Central as it gets closer to the live show at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on Saturday, February 28th. The show will be taped and will premiere on Sunday, March 8th at 8pm et on Comedy Central who is working with Jon Stewart’s Busboy Productions to produce the event.
The night will include stand up performances, sketches and comedy short films. Comedy Central will also be going live on March 8th with a celebrity phone bank during the pre-recorded show allowing people to donate during the airing of the special. “Night of Too Many Stars” has raised $18 million since it started in 2006 for autism programs across the country while partnering with New York Collaborates for Autism.
