Ben Stiller Stages Funny Talk Show For Charity

Funnyperson and friend of the developmentally disabled Ben Stiller participated in the Project ALS 11th Annual Gala at the Waldorf Astoria last night. It was a benefit for research into amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a degenerative neurological disease.

Ben staged a one night only fake talk show which he hosted, complete with band. Chris Rock and Jon Stewart appeared as guests, and Daily Show writer Ed Helms and Sarah Jessica Parker’s brother Pippin supplied jokes. PIPPIN? PIPPIN PARKER? Isn’t that a musical? Pippin? Damn!

“It will have a format and band,” Stiller said before the event. “Just hopefully be a
lot of fun and ridiculous. Everyone knows why they’re there — we don’t
need to pound them over the head with the heaviness of the disease.”

PIPPIN? What the eff is wrong with her parents. That dude must have permanent shoe-prints on his ass.

Featured in the gallery: Ben Stiller, Christine Taylor, Julianna Margulies, Gina Gershon, John Slattery, Jerry Stiller, Anne Meara and Matthew Broderick.
