NEW YORK, March 31, 2008 -- COMEDY CENTRAL announced today that Kelsey Grammer, Ben Stiller, Grammy Award-winning band Maroon 5 and The Roots have been added to the line-up for its bi-annual live on-air special event, "Night Of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert For Autism Education." On Sunday, April 13, at 8:00 p.m. ET, live from the Beacon Theatre in New York City, the benefit for Autism education programs will feature Jon Stewart hosting an evening filled with live performances, sketches and short films from a roster of comedy all-stars.

Performers raising money to help ease the severe shortage of effective schools and education programs for autistic children and adults include Fred Armisen, Will Arnett, Matthew Broderick, Tom Brokaw, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Susie Essman, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Will Forte, Kelsey Grammer, Jonah Hill, Kevin James, Maroon 5, Rosie O'Donnell, Amy Poehler, Conan O'Brien, Adam Sandler, Sarah Silverman, Ben Stiller, Triumph The Insult Comic Dog and many additional talent to be announced. The Roots will be the house band for the evening.

Beginning on Tuesday, April 15, "Night of Too Many Stars" will be available for download on iTunes and xBox Live Marketplace for 30 days. All proceeds from the $1.99 download will go directly to the charity. In addition, comedycentral.com will stream the entire broadcast online on Monday, April 14. Users will have the opportunity to donate to the charity via the Web site.

The October 2006 "Night Of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Benefit For Autism Education" raised more than $2.5 million.

"Night Of Too Many Stars" will benefit a variety of Autism education programs around the country. The funds raised will support educational facilities that have recently opened or are about to open their doors, along with those already 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.
