The New York Comedy Festival and the Bob Woodruff Foundation are proud to present Stand Up for Heroes, an evening of comedy and music benefiting injured service members, veterans and their families.  From Town Hall to the Beacon Theater and now The Theater at Madison Square Garden, in seven years, this event has raised more than $16 million to support wounded warriors and their families. It brings together leaders from military, business, entertainment, government, and philanthropy to raise funds to help post-911 injured service members and their families thrive long after they return to the home front.  Stand Up for Heroes honors the sacrifice of returning service members, veterans and their families by offering support in the effort to heal the physical and psychological wounds of war.  The event will feature performances by Jerry Seinfeld, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Stewart, Roger Waters and other surprise guests.
