Jon Stewart's Twitter War with Donald Trump at Stand Up for Heroes

In its tenth year, Stand Up for Heroes remains one of the great nights, with Bruce Springsteen performing an acoustic "Dancin' in the Dark" spiced with dirty jokes. And after a decade of working it, Bruce's comic timing is almost as good as his philanthropy. After Bob Woodruff was nearly killed, embedded with troops in Iraq in 2006, he and his wife Lee started this benefit celebrating the bravery of our military and raising funds to help those wounded. Working with Caroline Hirsch and Andrew Fox...

Caroline Hirsch on the phone: Taking Comedy Seriously at Guild Hall

She stops at Exit 70 for phone meetings, at a parking lot where this doyenne of laughs knows there's a good signal. Guild Hall would seem like a natural venue for comedy shows. Is thi...

ALBUM REVIEW: BOB WOODRUFF, “The Year We Tried To Kill The Pain”

This new album from Bob Woodruff is only his fourth in a 22-year recording career and it’s a fine statement as to what patience and skill in songwriting can do.  Although he’s a New York City native, this album was recorded in Sweden and sounds more like it comes straight out of Nashville.  A clean, crisp production with a big, radio friendly sound helps lift this collection of songs up even higher, considering the quality of the songs already do this. Wryly titled The Year We Tried To Kill Th...
