Bruce Springsteen delivered three performances and a little bit of comedy during the virtual version of 2020’s Stand Up for Heroes Comedy Festival.
The annual event benefitting the Bob Woodruff Foundation had to take on a different form due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the hour-long special embedded below still brought plenty of special moments like when Springsteen and host Jon Stewart opened the show with a motorcycle ride with Stewart riding in a sidecar.
Stewart quipped to Springsteen, “Oh my God, that is the worst Uber ride I have ever had.” Springsteen shot back, “Three stars?” Stewart responded, “No three stars. You didn’t have a wind screen for me.”
Stewart hosted the event from Springsteen’s barn on his property in New Jersey where The Boss performed the following three songs:
-“House Of A Thousand Guitars” w/Patti Scialfa (25:12 mark)
-“Long Walk Home” (42:34 mark)
-“I’ll See You In My Dreams” w/Patti Scialfa (55:45 mark)
As is evident by the special’s name, it also featured appearances from a number of comedians including Nate Bargatze, Ronny Chieng, Tiffany Haddish, Brian Regan and Iliza Shlesinger.
