On Saturday October 2, 2010 at the Beacon Theater in NYC we went to Comedy Central's "Night of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert for Autism Education" charity event. Before going into the theatre we went to the red carpet where we managed to speak to: John Oliver and Olivia Munn from "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart", comedians Jim Gaffigan and Lewis Black, author and autism advocate Temple Grandin, Emiy Gerson Saines the producer of HBO's film "Temple Grandin", documentarian Soledad O'Brien, and internet phenomenon Tay Zonday, the creator of "Chocolate Rain".

Jon Stewart hosts this event in support of autism education as done by the www.NewYorkCenterForAutism.com. The performances that evening were amazing, and well worth tuning in when the show broadcasts on Comedy Central at 9pm on October 21, 2010, with live auctions, call ins, and additional performances. Text STARS to 90999 to donate $10 to the "Night of Too Many Stars" charity.
