A topic that is often difficult for people to discuss and can be emotionally tolling is getting the attention of a network that represents a much brighter concept: comedy. Comedy Central will be hosting “Night Of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert For Autism Education”. The network has lined up a dazzling list of some of comedy’s biggest players: Steve Carell, Jimmy Fallon, Tracy Morgan, Joel McHale, John Oliver, and Chris Rock are just a few of those expected to perform.

The benefit will be bi-coastal, with a comedy concert at New York’s Beacon Hall Theatre on October 2nd that will be recorded and broadcast with live appearances and a celebrity phone bank originating from Los Angeles on October 21st.

Jon Stewart is said to host the event, which will be two-hours long and is intended to raise money to help ease the deficiency of schools and education programs for children and adults with ASD.
