NEW YORK — Dave Chappelle, Jon Stewart, Jimmy Fallon and Amy Schumer are among a star-studded group of comedians who will perform for just one night at Madison Square Garden to mark the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

“We wanted to throw a fun celebration to honor the resilience of this great city. It’s nice to be able to do this with friends and people we love,” Stewart said in a statement.
The show is his brainchild with Pete Davidson, who will also perform.
