hasn't had a lot to laugh about in the last couple of years. But thanks to
and a lineup of top comedians, there will be plenty of humor to go around during a special evening on Nov. 7 to benefit the
Bob Woodruff Family Fund
In conjunction with the
New York Comedy Festival
, O'Brien will host the event,
Stand Up for Heroes
, which is dedicated to the nation's injured service members. The proceeds of the benefit - where
and other special guests will perform at New York City's Town Hall - will go to the Woodruff fund.
Woodruff, who was severely injured in 2006 while reporting from Iraq for ABC News, established the fund a year later to raise awareness and money for members of the military hurt in the line of duty.
