‘Stand Up For Heroes’ kicks off New York Comedy Festival
NEW YORK (WABC) — It’s billed as a “night of hope, healing and laughter,” as Monday marks the 13th time we’ve all been asked to Stand Up For Heroes. And once again, “The Boss” Bruce Springsteen is performing along with Jon Stewart and special guests.
The event benefits The Bob Woodruff Foundation started by the ABC News correspondent and his wife, Lee, to help our injured veterans and their families.
The show also kicks off The New York Comedy Festival, during which more than 200 comedians will perform at more than 100 shows over the next week here in New York City.
