Stand Up for Heroes, New York’s most impactful night of comedy and music, returns to the Theater at Madison Square Garden, Wednesday, Nov. 5, at 8 p.m.
Presented by the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) and New York Comedy Festival (NYCF), the star-studded occasion honors the sacrifice of returning service members, veterans and their families.
The charitable event will feature performances by Louis C.K., John Mulaney, Bruce Springsteen, John Oliver, Brian Williams and other surprise guests. Now in its 8th year, Stand Up for Heroes has raised more than $21 million in funds to help post-9/11 injured service members and their families thrive long after they return to the home front.

“Lee and I are so humbled by the generous contributions of the talent, sponsors, and variety of organizations in honor of our nation’s heroes and their families. Each year the show gets bigger and better, demonstrating the unwavering support of all those involved,” said Bob Woodruff, ABC News Journalist and co-founder of the Bob Woodruff Foundation. “We, as well as the show’s talented performers, want to show our appreciation for and give back to the brave men and women who served our country and have come home injured. We are inspired and moved by the grand presence of all these groups on such an incredible night for us to commend and remember our heroes.”
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the Bob Woodruff Foundation for the eighth consecutive year for Stand Up for Heroes,” says Caroline Hirsch, Bob Woodruff Foundation board member and founder of the New York Comedy Festival and Carolines on Broadway. “It’s a testament to the tireless work of everyone involved with Stand Up for Heroes and to the support of all of the great performers who have donated their time and considerable talents to this worthwhile event over the years,” Hirsch adds.
