Helping Vets through Humor
Comedian Jim Gaffigan’s hilarious new 75-minute stand-up special, “Mr. Universe,” is available through a $5 download on his website and $1 from each sale will be donated to the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which has supported more than 1 million Veterans, Servicemembers and their families since 2008.
Bob Woodruff has a deep connection to the Military community; he was nearly killed by a roadside bomb in 2006 while covering the war in Iraq for ABC News. “He’s been very deeply moved by what needs to be done to further this mission of ours and our foundation,” Woodruff said of Gaffigan during a phone interview before leaving on assignment for ABC News in North Korea.
“We ask these men and women to serve and protect our country and then they come back and are sometimes forgotten,” said Gaffigan, who met Woodruff last year when he performed at the foundation’s Stand Up for Heroes event in New York.
