Sandler, Stiller + Rock Raise Money For Autism
A galaxy of comedians including ADAM SANDLER, BEN STILLER and CHRIS ROCK teamed up to raise money for autism on Sunday (13Apr08) night.
The funnymen took the stage at New York's Beacon Theatre for a Night Of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert For Autism Education, hosted by U.S. TV host Jon Stewart.
The show, which was broadcast live on American cable network Comedy Central, also featured Matthew Broderick, Susan Sarandon, Tina Fey, Sarah Silverman, Will Arnett, Amy Poehler and chat show host Conan O'Brien.
Broderick said, "It's fun to be here. I'm a fan of 94 per cent of the performers. I'm always a little nervous. I hope it goes well."
The last autism special, which took place in 2006, raised almost $3 million (GBP1.5 million).
