Exclusive: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Jonah Hill and More Talent Set for Don Rickles Tribute

The pair join David Letterman, Robert De Niro, and Martin Scorsese for Spike TV's tribute


The impending laugh fest just keeps getting bigger: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Jonah Hill have joined the roster of Spike TV’s One Night Only: An All-Star Comedy Tribute to Don Rickles, which tapes Tuesday, May 6 at the legendary Apollo Theater in New York City.

Fey, Poehler and Hill join previously announced names such as David Letterman, Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart, Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese, Tracy Morgan and more.

Although the event isn’t billed as a roast, it’s unlikely the assembled roster will be able to resist taking a few shots at the 87-year-old Rickles, a native New Yorker whose insult-comic act has earned him the nickname “Mr. Warmth.”

As mentioned, the special tapes Tuesday and will be aired on Spike TV Wednesday, May 28 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
