“The Daily Show” gang will be back together when Jon Stewart, John Oliver and Trevor Noah reunite for the Stand Up for Heroes gala on Nov. 7 at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The 11th annual celebration to honor our nation’s injured veterans and their families will also feature Hasan Minhaj, John Mulaney, Conan O’Brien and other surprise guests.
“Stand Up for Heroes is an opportunity for us all to put aside our differences and honor those who have, and continue to sacrifice so much for all of us,” said Bob Woodruff, ABC News correspondent and co-founder of the Bob Woodruff Foundation. “The power of coming together is even clearer as we reflect on Hurricanes Harvey and Irma where we were proud to see veterans stepping up as a force for good amid tragedy.”
Since it was launched in 2007, Stand Up for Heroes has raised over $40 million to create long-lasting, positive outcomes for our nation’s injured veterans, service members and their families. This year it will donate $500,000 to veteran organizations affected by recent disasters such as Harvey and Irma.
“Hurricane Harvey will undoubtedly be Team Rubicon’s largest operation to date, and Irma was not far behind, but the veterans and disaster responders among our ranks are built to serve,” said Jake Wood, CEO and co-founder of Team Rubicon. “Thanks to the continued support of the Bob Woodruff Foundation, we’re able to empower our nation’s best to tackle the worst.”
Stand Up for Heroes is presented by the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) and the New York Comedy Festival (NYCF), and is brought to you by Veterans on Wall Street, supported by founding sponsor GFI Group Inc., the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation and the Craig Newmark Foundation.
Past performers have included Bill Burr, Louis C.K., Stephen Colbert, Jim Gaffigan, Ricky Gervais, John Mayer, Seth Meyers, Conan O’Brien, Jerry Seinfeld, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Stewart, Brian Regan, Ray Romano and Robin Williams.
