HARKER HEIGHTS — Fathers and military personnel are in for a treat as the “Stand Up For Our Troops” All-Star Comedy Show comes to the Harker Heights Event Center at 8 p.m. Saturday.

The lineup stars John Witherspoon, star of the “Friday” movie trilogy and “The Wayans Brothers” TV sitcom, and comedians Piper, Big Sean and Joe Clair from BET’s “Rap City.”

This is the fourth year the show has been presented in Central Texas, said Franklin McGruder, vice president of MA360 Media Inc., the show’s promoter.

“We do these types of events to not only show fathers our appreciation but (also) our troops,” he said. “I love my country and nobody will ever change that. I truly salute the hard work these young men and women have done for us.”
