Stand Up for heroes

The New York Comedy Festival (NYCF) and the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) unite to present the second annual Stand Up for Heroes: A Benefit for the Bob Woodruff Foundation at Town Hall in New York City at 8:00 PM on Wednesday, November 5. Regis Philbin will host Stand Up for Heroes, which will feature star performances by Ricky Gervais, John Pinette, Bruce Springsteen, and Patti Scialfa. Both Whoopi Goldberg and James Niven of Sotheby's will make a special appearance as the guest auctioneers. In honor of the United States' injured service members, the evening promises unforgettable performances, laughter, and sincere gratitude, with proceeds going to the BWF.
Tickets are on sale (soon?) at Ticketmaster.

Bruce is also performing at Obama-related events at Hammerstein Ballroom and in Philly. Ricky Gervais is in the new movie Ghost Town.

Nothing says “thank you, American heroes” like a pasty, pudgy Englishman spouting off about someone having a head shaped like a fucking orange.
