We just discovered that comedic actor Tracy Morgan was just announced as a performer for Night of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert for Autism Education, taking place next month for Comedy Central.
Morgan, who made a name for himself on Saturday Night Live and most recently was seen in the films Cop Out and Death At A Funeral , will join a host of other big-name acts.
Portions of the charity special will be taped at New York City’s Beacon Theatre on Oct. 2nd and will also include appearances from Chris Rock, Steve Carell, Tina Fey, Jimmy Fallon, Sarah Silverman and many others.
Kicking off the night’s musical tunes will be Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings. The Brooklyn-based soul band will perform songs throughout the evening as the special’s host band.
The show will air Oct. 29 at 9 p.m. and celebrities will man the phones in Los Angeles, and viewers can call in and donate while speaking to some of their favorite comedians.
Comedy Central is aiming to make Night of Too Many Stars a benefit for autistic children and adults.
