That’s right, on Tuesday, December 22, at 4 p.m. PT, expect a whole lot of laughs, as the funny guys join Steve Buscemi’s Fireside Chat to raise money for Friends of Firefighters. What is that, exactly? The uplifting charity was founded following 9/11, with the hopes of giving back to both active and retired FDNY firefighters and their loved ones.

But wait, there's a whole lot more where that came from. Not only will Sandler and Rock join their famous friend in his charitable cause, but so will many others folks. You know, like Judd Apatow, Julie Bowen, Kevin James, and Rob Schneider, to name a few. No big deal, right? Are you as excited as we are?
