At the “Stand Up for heroes” benefit last night at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York, Jon Stewart drew big laughs by talking about his 2013 Twitter war with Donald Trump: Trump accused the Red Bank resident and Lawrenceville native of not being “proud of his heritage” since he changed his last name from Leibowitz, and Stewart responded by claiming Trump’s real name is FuckFace Von Clownstick. You can watch Stewart’s talk, below.
This was the 10th annual Stand Up for Heroes benefit, with proceeds going to the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which supports injured soldiers and their families. Woodruff is the TV anchorman who was seriously injured while covering the war in Iraq in 2006.
Other performers at the benefit, presented in conjunction with The New York Comedy Festival, included Jerry Seinfeld, Louis C.K. and Jim Gaffigan. Bruce Springsteen, who performs regularly at these benefits, told some jokes and performed four songs, acoustically: “Working on the Highway,” “I’ll Work for Your Love,” “Long Walk Home” and “Dancing in the Dark.”
