Comedy stars including Chris Rock, Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais came together in New York on Saturday to perform in aid of an autism charity.

Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Joel McHale also took to the stage at the Big Apple's Beacon Theater for Comedy Central's Night Of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert For Autism Education, to raise money for the New York Center for Autism.

Proceeds from the event will help fund education programs for autistic children and adults. The show will air at 9 p.m. EST on Oct. 21 on Comedy Central. Viewers will be encouraged to call the celebrity-operated phone bank and make a charitable donation to support the cause.
