The 13th annual Stand Up For Heroes celebration is set for November 4th at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden. The event honoring the nation’s veterans and their families will once again welcome Bruce Springsteen to the stage alongside comedians Ronny Chieng, Hasan Minhaj, Jon Stewart and John Oliver.

The event will also feature a number of other soon-to-be-named surprise guests in what a release promises will be a “unique evening of comedy and music to raise funds and awareness in support of the Bob Woodruff Foundation.” 

The special event coincides with the nation’s largest comedy festival (Nov. 4-10), with more than 200 comedians performing at 100 shows across New York. “Even after 13 years of Stand Up for Heroes, the event continues to inspire our audience and our nation,” said Woodruff, ABC News correspondent and co-founder of the Bob Woodruff Foundation. “We can’t forget that these brave individuals stand up to serve in our military, and we need to show our support by standing up for them in return.”
