anthony anderson (uncf)*The 34th annual UNCF Evening of Stars hosted by Anthony Anderson, is coming up on BET on Sunday, January 27 at 10pm Eastern.

The telecast features unforgettable performances from Melanie Fiona, Eric Benet, Faith Evans, Keyshia Cole, Charlie Wilson, Tyrese Gibson and Chaka Khan. Each year, the UNCF raises funds to send deserving students to top colleges and universities across the country.  The students spotlighted this year have amazing stories of triumph over adversity to reach their goals of a priceless education.

Oh yeah, did we say actor Anthony Anderson, who switches from drama to comedy at the flip of a switch will also be on the scene to host the event?

In fact, we’ve got some hilarious and exclusive, behind the scenes video of Anthony Anderson (NBC’s Guys With Kids & Law & Order) in anticipation of the show.

Watch and crack up: :)
