It wasn’t too many, but it was a lot. Comedy Central co-hosted “Night of Too Many Stars,” a benefit for autism education Saturday in New York City. The evening, which funds a variety of autism-education programs around the United States, was hosted by Jon Stewart and will be broadcast Oct. 21 on Comedy Central. See who turned out to do a good deed.

Jon Stewart

The host has raised some $14 million for autism education in four “Too Many Stars” shows. He described the night as “not presidential-debate incredible, but incredible.”

Katy Perry

The highlight of the evening was her duet with an autistic girl who accompanied her on the piano for “Firework,” one of Perry’s top songs. The rendition brought the audience—and host Jon Stewart—to tears.

Chris Matthews and Bill O’Reilly

The two debated each other in the high voices produced by ingesting the helium in balloons. It was as weird as it sounds.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

They teamed up to offer themselves as best friends for a night to the highest bidder in a live auction. Two women won, and for only $72,000.

Seth Rogen

In one of the more unusual bits of the night, Rogan offered to “take a pee” with the highest bidder in the house. “We’re going to make it rain,” he promised. The audience got to watch.

Ben Stiller

He appeared as the clueless male model Zoolander. Nearly nude real models were involved.

She’s really skinny now!

Tom Morello

The Rage Against the Machine guitarist played the Public Enemy piece “Fight the Power” accompanied by the Whiffenpoofs, a male a capella singing group from Yale. Sample lyric: “Elvis was a hero to most/But he never meant shit to me, you see/Straight up racist that sucker was/Simple and plain.”

Bill Burr

The comic killed with a routine questioning Steve Jobs’s and Apple’s contributions to society. “When I was a kid, nerds had shame. Now they’re walking around all proud. This is what happens when you get rid of bullying.”

Stephen Colbert

The Comedy Central star appeared with a bear-costumed actor. Either you get it or you don’t.

Carly Rae Jepsen

A fantastic duet of “Call Me Maybe” with Harvey Keitel. Totally viral. Look for it on a YouTube link near you. “That blew my fucking mind,” Jon Stewart said.

Sting

The singer wrapped up the evening by auctioning off a live performance of “Roxanne” with the winning bidder’s name subbed in. Paul Reps (or is it Repps? Paul, let us know!) was the winner. He loved it.
