For those of you attending Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear” this weekend, a schedule of events has been leaked showing what to expect from the three-hour program.
Musical guests The Roots and Sheryl Crow will entertain, while actors Don Novello and Sam Waterson will read a benediction and poem respectively. I wouldn’t be surprised if Waterson’s poetry is environmentally-themed; especially since he’s a passionate board member of the conservation group Oceana. Both Stewart and Colbert will take the stage for about 25 minutes — with additional guests and performances yet to be announced.
Anyways, check out the full schedule after the jump below — and by all means, have fun.
