Slated for Nov. 5 at The Theater At Madison Square Garden, the evening of comedy and music is presented by The Bob Woodruff Foundation and the New York Comedy Festival.  Sponsors include the Veterans On Wall Street and the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation supported by founding sponsor GFI Group.

Oh, and the event is also promising “surprise guests.”
