Alec Baldwin’s headed to Harlem, and Robert De Niro refuses to miss the fun.

On June 25, Baldwin will be the man of the hour at One Night Only: Alec Baldwin — an evening expected to be full of laughter where he will be joined by his friends and luminaries from the film, television and comedy worlds.

But of all his friends, one stands out among the rest. Fellow actor, De Niro, 73, will attend the event — held at Harlem’s World Famous Apollo Theatre in New York City — and introduce the 59-year old’s dramatic work as a memorable moment within the comedy tribute, PEOPLE exclusively reveals.

The black tie event, which will be premiering July 9 on Spike, will feature an additional list of headliners, including Julianne Moore, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski, Jack McBrayer, Daniel Baldwin, and Jane Curtin, as well as a pre-taped performance by Baldwin’s Saturday Night Live cast mates, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon.

It’s been a hot year for Baldwin, who has brought in $491 million worldwide for his animated hit, Boss Baby and continued his Donald Trump parody on Saturday Night Live. And this event is expected to keep that hot streak burning.

One Night Only: Alec Baldwin premieres Sunday, July 9 at 9 p.m. ET on Spike.
