Bruce Springsteen will get to tell his dirty jokes once again–virtually–for the annual Stand Up for Heroes benefit event, which supports the Bob Woodruff Foundation’s efforts to help wounded service members, veterans and their families 9 p.m. Nov. 18.
. Jon Stewart will host the event, the lineup of which, in addition to Springsteen, includes Bruce’s wife, Patti Scialfa, plus Sheryl Crow, Brad Paisley, Mickey Guyton, actress Tiffany Haddish, comic Iliza Shlesinger and more. Prince Harry and Ray Romano will appear as special guests.
Springsteen has appeared at 12 events, only missing 2017 due to his run of Broadway shows.
The program will air on on ABC News Live, TikTok, Facebook, Cheddar, Twitch and the Armed Forces Network.
“For the last 14 years, the Stand Up for Heroes event has continued to inspire our nation and serves as a reminder of all of the brave individuals that have defended our country selflessly in our military,” said Bob Woodruff, ABC News correspondent and co-founder of the Bob Woodruff Foundation. “This year, it is especially important that we unite to show support for their sacrifices as we come together virtually to stand up for our heroes.”
