Stand Up for Heroes 2018:
The 8 Best Things We Saw
After a dozen years, the annual Stand Up For Heroes benefit has settled into a steady rhythm that consistently makes it one of the most entertaining benefit shows of the year. With the exception of last year when it conflicted with his Broadway schedule, Bruce Springsteen has played every one since it began in 2007 and he’s always joined by some of the biggest names in comedy. This year that meant Jon Stewart, Seth Myers, Jim Gaffigan and Jimmy Carr. If that wasn’t enough to move tickets, this year they put Eric Church on the bill as well. All the proceeds go to the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which has given over $57 million to wounded veterans and their families.
It was an evening of hysterical jokes, moving tributes to true American heroes and amazing duets. Here are the eight best moments.
