Sometimes silliness and profundity come together (with a touch of Star Wars) as they did last weekend at the Night of Too Many Stars benefit for autism. During this benefit, some of the greatest modern comedians were upstaged this year (as I understand they were in 2012) by young Jodi DiPiazza, a 13 year-old girl with autism who sang “Weird” Al Yankovic’s Yoda along with the parody master.
Please watch below and try not to be moved by the joy of Jodi and her backup singers, the Acitonplay Chorus, a choir made up entirely of young people with autism.
