Performers raising money to help ease the severe shortage of effective schools and education programs for autistic children and adults, include Jack Black, Steve Carell, Kristin Chenoweth, Sacha Baron Cohen, Stephen Colbert, Elvis Costello, Jimmy Fallon, Will Ferrell, Ricky Gervais, Norm Macdonald, Christopher Meloni, Mike Myers, Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Adam Sandler, Martin Short, Tony Sirico, Ben Stiller, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Brian Williams and more.

Beginning on Monday, October 16, "Night of Too Many Stars" will be available for download on iTunes for 30 days. All proceeds from the $1.99 download will go directly to the charity.

"Night Of Too Many Stars" is sponsored by Chevrolet, Amp'd Mobile and Intel Core2Duo.

"Night Of Too Many Stars" will benefit the Alpine Learning Group, the New York Center for Autism Charter School and other Autism education programs. The funds raised will support educational facilities that have recently opened or are about to open their doors along with those very well-established model schools that are now developing innovative programs to provide vocational and life skills for adults with autism. Proceeds will also support outreach programs that provide training and consultation to families of very young children in their homes. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Autism Speaks, the nation's leading autism advocacy group.
