Last night, the 21st, was the hilarious event of Night of Too Many stars hosted by Jon Stewart to help raise money for Autism education. A live telethon took place while they played clips from the event that took place a couple weeks ago where comedians performed shortened sets and celebrity auctions took place. Some of the celebrities that performed were Lewis Black, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, Joel McHale, John Oliver, Chris Rock, Sarah Silverman, Triumph The Insult Comic Dog, and Robin Williams. Chris Rock cussed out an ex-boyfriend of a bidder over the phone, and Robin Williams offered a walk on role, no speaking parts, of his next movie.
Celebrities were manning the phones, talking to donators during the live telethon. Betty White, Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Penn Jillette, Captain Sully Sullenberger, Weird Al, and many many moore. The celebrities are also auctioning some things online including posters, hats, bobbles heads, food, and other interesting things signed by the stars. If you donated $75 you had the choice of a Tina Fey swimsuit calender (there’s a little bit for everyone) or a Whtie Castle burger-scented candle. And for $100 or higher you get both.
Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert treated everyone to a nice song, that they came up with and wrote about a year ago. Well, I’ll let them sing and tell with this video.
