Larry King To Do One-Man Standup Tour: [ send to a friend ]
Larry King may have left his chair as talk show host, but the 77-year-old isn't done talking.
King, who retired last year after two and a half decades at CNN, has announced he will be taking the stage in seven cities to give fans "a hilarious and insightful look" at his life both behind and in front of the cameras.
In the show called 'Larry King: Standing Up', the former talk show host promises to give fans a comedic look at his life growing up as a street-smart kid in Brooklyn and his years in front of the camera.
"Larry King's style and wit will give audiences an evening to remember," say producers Base Entertainment and Karl Engemann.
King will also participate in Q&As with audience members at each stop, which starts on April 14 in Connecticut. He will also visit Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland and New Jersey before wrapping up with two shows in Las Vegas, Nevada in June.
Yesterday, his CNN replacement, Piers Morgan, announced that King would be making an appearance on his show later this week. With the announcement of his standup tour, we now know why.
