Any details about Rally to Restore Sanity/Fear are not disclosed yet on this weekend’s event in Washington D.C. However, the National Park Service issued a permit to make it available to the public on 30 October 2010. A partial schedule of events from the permit has been put together in the Christian Science Monitor’s article but there are lots of unknown guests in this schedule.
To attend the "Rally to Restore Sanity and/Fear" on 30 October at the National Mall in Washington DC, more than 200,000 people have signed up on Facebook but many people want to participate. President Barack Obama has authorized the combined events of Stephen Colbert of that network's The Colbert Report and Jon Stewart, host of popular comedy news program The Daily Show on US television network Comedy Central, who are organizers of it.
People are thinking that Jon Stewart may participate in this political rally by crossing the line of comedic political commentator. This event looks funny and entertaining. At present, guest speakers and performances have not been finalized but an incomplete line-up has been released that includes musical acts Sheryl Crow, The Roots, and Mavis Staples with Jeff Tweedy, as well as actor Sam Waterston. Like other comedians and guests, Stewart and Colbert will address the crowd. The Sanity and Fear Awards will be the last segment of the political rally.
Schedule of the event posted by the Christian Science Monitor:
10:00 a.m.: The pre-pre-show begins with videos and music on the jumbotron to keep the gathering crowd friendly and entertained.
Noon: The pre-show starts with a performance from The Roots.
12:40: A comedian (to be determined) warms up the audience.
12:57: A video countdown with a show introduction.

1:20: Mr. Colbert enters, and two actors - Don Novello and Sam Waterston - perform readings.

2:40: The show turns to a pre-taped sequence - The Sanity and Fear Awards. (Noting the intense media interest in this event as she reads through the rundown, Ms. Lowe says, "I'd like some sanity, myself.")
To round out the three-hour production, Stewart and Colbert will make their final statements. Then, adds Lowe, "They all hurry up and clean up after themselves."
