Night of Too Many Stars premiered last night, but you still have time to bid on items from your favorite celebrities. You could have Aziz Ansari take over your Twitter account for 10 minutes (bidding closes Wednesday, October 31) or get an autographed Hannibal Buress: Animal Furnace DVD (bidding closes Saturday, October 27). Finally, you'll get the followers you crave, and your Hannibal DVD will have a signature other than your own on it.

There are tons of other items, so go to the celebrity auction page and start bidding. Your donations benefit New York Collaborates for Autism and help contribute to the development of autism schools, services and programs across the country. Doesn't that feel great?

Remember the 90s? We were all doing The Bartman, feeding our Tamagotchis and pledging to only wear neon. It was also the birth of Comedy Central and watching stand-up on basic cable.

In honor of #RetroWeekend, CC:Stand-Up is highlighting their favorite 90s stand-up from Dave Chappelle, Bill Hicks, Wanda Sykes and more. Get started with a Louis C.K. clip from the 1993 series Two Drink Mimimum. He opens with a diarrhea joke, closes with a Ross Perot joke. Some things never change.

Be sure to get in on the Retro Weekend fun by tweeting your photos and memories of the 80s and 90s to @ComedyCentral with hashtag #RetroWeekend. They might even end up on the air.

Unleash your inner Scrooge, get a copy of the new anti-holiday book Denis Leary's "Merry F***in' Christmas" (coming October, 2012, digitally and in hardcover). Denis covers everything from drunken Santas and cranky elves to irritating family members and holiday consumerism. It's everything that "Twas the Night Before Christmas" was too scared to tell you. A portion of the profits will be donated to The Leary Firefighters Foundation.

To get in the spirit, watch this ad for the new cold remedy this season — Colt 45D.
