Pete Davidson, Jon Stewart Organize All-Star Comedy Benefit For 9/11 Charities At Madison Square Garden
"NYC Still Rising After 20 Years: A Comedy Celebration" was announced Monday as a one-night comedy event to be held September 12 at Madison Square Garden.
Among those set to perform include John Mulaney, Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes, Bill Burr, Colin Jost, Colin Quinn, Dave Attell, Dave Chappelle, Jay Pharoah, Jimmy Fallon, Michael Che, Ronny Chieng, Tom Segura, and of course, Jon Stewart and Pete Davidson.
"We wanted to put on a fun celebration to honor this great city's resilience," Davidson and Stewart said in a joint statement. "It's nice to be able to do this with friends and people we love."
Davidson's father died in the 9/11 attack, and Stewart has long publicly advocated for the first responders still dealing with physical, mental, and financial difficulties from that day years later.
Attendees must provide proof of full Covid-19 vaccination in ordinance with Mayor Bill de Blasio's vaccination requirement inside venues. No cell phones, cameras, or recording devices will be allowed and will be collected before the show and returned after.
All proceeds from the event will benefit 9/11 charities. General tickets are on sale beginning Friday, August 13, at 12 p.m. ET at Ticketmaster.com.
