On November 7th, Bruce Springsteen will once again headline the annual “Stand Up For Heroes” benefit taking place this year at Manhattan’s David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

Deadline.com reported in addition to Springsteen and Jon Stewart, who appears every year, this year’s comedy event will also feature Amber Iman, the Lumineers, Hasan Minhaj, Jeff Ross, and Iliza Shlesinger, with more to be announced. The event kicks off the 16th annual New York Comedy Festival and is but one of over 100 performances held across New York City between November 7th and 13th.

Bruce Springsteen has long been a supporter of the U.S.-based “Stand Up For Heroes” benefit, serving the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which provides aid to those who have sustained the “hidden injuries of war,” and has raised over $60 million and helped over one million veterans, service members, and their families since it began.
