Inspired! We hope it ends up being a success!

Some of the biggest names in comedy are getting together for a good cause. Comedy Central has pulled together the funniest folks in Hollywood for their broadcast of Night Of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert For Autism Education.

Stars like Stephen Colbert, Joel McHale, Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, Chris Rock and Sarah Silverman will perform live on the broadcast while Jimmy Kimmel, Jim Parsons, Sofia Vergara, Rainn Wilson and more will be manning the celebrity phone bank, taking donations to help out this important cause. The evening will be hosted by none other than the Comedy Central great, Jon Stewart.

Be sure to tune in to the October 21st broadcast to learn about how you can help.

    This is awsome! My brother is autistic and im glad that they are trying to help shed more light into this condition, many people think that a person with autisim is mentally retarded, and that is so not the case.Thank you to all of the people that are making this happen.
