Comedy Central has joined forces with The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart’s Busboy Productions for its star-studded 4th biennial special event, “ Night of Too Many Stars.”   As you all know, some exemplary people give generously to charity because they sincerely want to. While other people have a hard time helping out unless they know they’re getting something in return. This October, Jon Stewart is making sure that you both give and get!

In exchange for your charitable contributions to support Autism programs, Stewart is offering one night of unforgettable television, with a cast packed with so many of his hilarious comedy superstar friends that you just might think that there are “too many.” But honestly, the title is much funnier than it is likely.

Jon StewartJon Stewart also hosts the event, which benefits Autism programs, schools and services across the country. Autism now effects 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys, and this event helps to support the growing number of individuals with this mysterious ailment, and their families in need of quality services.

The show happens every two years, with each show having its own theme. This year’s theme, “America Comes Together”, will feature pairings of celebrity rivals and other grudge-holding talent, who agree to come together on this one night to support the cause. Be prepared to laugh until it hurts as comedic all-stars unite for an evening filled with live performances, sketches and short films.
