Louis C.K. and Russell Brand are set to perform at a benefit supporting veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder next month.

According to the David Lynch Foundation, Jim Gaffigan and Vanessa Bayer are also set to perform. The event takes place on April 30 at the New York City Center, in midtown Manhattan.

Proceeds from the benefit will go to the foundation in order to “bring stress-reducing, evidence-based meditation to veterans suffering from PTSD.”

Tickets for “An Amazing Night of Comedy: A David Lynch Foundation Benefit for Veterans with PTSD” went on sale Friday, starting at $49.50.

Lynch, the Oscar-nominated director of “Blue Velvet” and “Mulholland Drive,” launched the foundation in 2005, to advance research and education into the practice of Transcendental Meditation. A follower of TM starting in 1973, he says has meditated twice a day, every day, since then.
