Stand Up For Heroes

November 1, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

The biggest stars in comedy check their egos at the door for Stand Up for Heroes. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the event has raised over $33 million for the Bob Woodruff Foundation that raises money for injured service members and their families. Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart, Louis CK, Jim Gaffigan and other surprise guests will entertain the crowd with uproarious standup, but the star of the show is usually Bruce Springsteen. In between his acoustic set, he has been known to tell some shocking raunchy jokes, and then auction off his guitar (and sometimes his mom’s lasagna and a ride in his motorcycle sidecar), last year bringing in over $700,000. But the reason for the show is to help veterans, and there will be no shortage of heartfelt moments as the story of some of these American heroes are shared throughout the night.
