Moments of absurdity are to be expected at the biennial "Night of Too Many Stars" benefit on Comedy Central. Things like Seth Rogen auctioning off a trip to the urinal with him; a knock-down, drag-out fight between Kevin Bacon in a butter costume and Liev Schreiber dressed as broccoli; a performance of "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen and Harvey Keitel.
"It's the most beautiful thing I've ever been associated with," said the comedian Robert Smigel, who organizes and produces "Night of Too Many Stars." "I've made a career of all this nonsense _ and I'm very proud of it _ but it all pales in comparison to what happened Saturday."
"They deserve to be nurtured," says Smigel of children with autism. "They deserve to be educated. They deserve to be encouraged and not written off and not ostracized."
