This year Chris Botti, Seth Meyers, John Oliver, Ray Romano, Bruce Springsteen and Jon Stewart have agreed to help the cause make their impact even larger. There are also secret “surprise guests” that have yet to be announced, a list that has included Louis C.K., Jerry Seinfeld and Robin Williams in previous years. So we’re willing to bet that whatever names get added to be bill will be worth your while.

The Stand Up for Heroes show will taking over the Theater at Madison Square Garden on November 10th. Tickets will be available starting at noon tomorrow, Sept 16th, and can be purchased on through Bob Woodruff’s or The New York Comedy Festival’s websites. Figure out a way to camp out online for those tickets and support a good cause with some laughter.
