Prince Harry Joins 'Stand Up for Heroes' Comedy Night for Veterans: How to Watch

Prince Harry will join a stand-up comedy event for veterans Wednesday night—alongside Jon Stewart, Bruce Springsteen and Tiffany Haddish.

The Duke of Sussex will join a virtual broadcast of Stand Up for Heroes, founded by ABC News reporter Bob Woodruff who was injured covering the Iraq War.

It is not currently clear whether the prince will attempt a few of his own jokes or simply send a straight-faced message of support.

Either way, he will be on ABC tonight at 9 p.m. ET and the event is also being streamed live on the channel's website.

Stand Up for Heroes has been held every year since 2007 to raise money for the Bob Woodruff Foundation.

Harry's intervention comes after the prince joined other veterans to pack and distribute food parcels for communities suffering food insecurity.

A source told Newsweek: "He spent time volunteering with The Mission Continues Los Angeles Service Platoon and joined them in distributing meal kits to families in Los Angeles."

Prince Harry quietly volunteered alongside @ComptonVeterans in LA on November 13, helping pack and distribute food parcels as part of their #OperationNourish program. The community-focused organisation works to improve quality of life for veterans, their families, and neighbours.

The prince and wife Meghan Markle visited Los Angeles National Cemetery on Remembrance Sunday, when the U.K. commemorates the sacrifice of fallen service men and women.

The same day, Harry told the Declassified podcast said: "Being able to wear my uniform, being able to stand up in service of one's country, these are amongst the greatest honors there are in life.

"To me, the uniform is a symbol of something much bigger, it's symbolic of our commitment to protecting our country, as well as protecting our values.

"These values are put in action through service, and service is what happens in the quiet and in the chaos.

"It's what happens in the darkness, it's what happens when people aren't looking. It's what happens on and off the battlefield.

"It's about carrying out our duty as soldiers. For me as a father, a husband and as a human being, it's about how we uphold these values in every aspect of our lives."

The same day, the wider royal family gathered in London at the Cenotaph for the country's formal service to remember its war dead.

The prince had asked for a wreath to be laid on his behalf but the request was refused by palace aides.

Harry served two tours of Afghanistan, including on the front line where he killed Tablian fighters as a co-pilot gunner.

He told the BBC: "Yeah, so lots of people have. The squadron's been out here. Everyone's fired a certain amount. We fire when we have to. We're more of a deterrent than anything else."

He added: "Take a life to save a life. That's what we revolve around, I suppose."
