Taping this Friday, March 8, at Hollywood’s Dolby Theater, Still Laugh-In: The Stars Celebrate will pay tribute to the Emmy-winning comedy/variety series that ran from January 1968 to March 1973 (meaning, it’s technically been 51 years. #NetflixMath).

Other stars set for the fete include Billy Crystal, Tiffany Haddish, Neil Patrick Harris, Taye Diggs, Michael Douglas, Jay Leno, Rita Moreno, Rita Wilson, JoAnne Worley, Maria Bamford, Margaret Cho, Ron Funches, Brad Garrett, Nikki Glaser, Lisa Ann Walter, Bobby Moynihan, Cheri Oteri, Rob Riggle, Jeff Ross, J.B.

An exact airdate for the special has not yet been announced.
