NEXT for AUTISM is bringing back its star-studded NYC benefit show, “Night of Too Many Stars,” on December 11 at Beacon Theatre. The 2023 edition features Stephen Colbert, Adam Sandler, Jon Stewart, Rachel Bloom, Ron Funches, James Austin Johnson, Chris Rock, Amy Schumer, the cast of How to Dance in Ohio, and “many others too hilarious to name.” Tickets go on sale Friday, October 27 at 11 AM EDT, with a Past Purchasers Presale happening now.
“Night of Too Many Stars” was last held in 2017 at Madison Square Garden.
Speaking of Colbert, he cancelled a week of The Late Show after contracting Covid last week and returned on Monday night (10/23), when he poked fun at Jim Jordan‘s failed bid to become Speaker of the House of Representatives. “I’m feeling good,” Colbert said, “partly because I’m back on my feet, but mostly because Jim Jordan will not be speaker of the House.”
Colbert went on to call Jordan’s defeat a “historic humiliation for a man who will not be in the history books,” continuing, “He was undone not by the usual MAGA bomb throwers. He was brought low by a coalition of Republican moderates.” Watch a clip below.
