This Sunday, March 8, Comedy Central will once again air Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs. Jon Stewart hosts the event, which since 2006 has raised over $18 million to benefit a variety of autism education and family service programs across the country.

Comedy Central released a few preview clips, seen below, from Night of Too Many Stars, including Adam Sandler and Bob Barker hilariously reviving their famed battle from Happy Gilmore; audience members spinning a wheel to determine how intimate they can get with Paul Rudd; and Conan O’Brien announcing an opportunity to be drawn as a character on The Simpsons.
