Stand Up for Heroes 2017

On November 7th, the annual Stand Up for Heroes event returned to Madison Square Garden as part of the New York Comedy Festival. The fundraiser features big names to collect donations for the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which helps wounded veterans.

This year’s show featured Jon Stewart, Trevor Noah, John Oliver, and many more, including the Red Hot Chili Peppers. TV and City had the opportunity to cover the red carpet and speak to the performers and attendees. Here are our interview highlights:
