You’ll never guess what Larry King is doing next.
The 77-year old former CNN talk show host is moving on to the next step in his career, and it’s no joke: King will appear in a seven-city stand-up comedy tour called "Larry King: Standing Up," according to the New York Daily News.
King’s routine will focus on his childhood as a street-smart kid in Brooklyn and his experiences in broadcast journalism, the story notes.
According to the New York Times ArtsBeat blog, "The show begins performances in Torrington, Conn., on April 14; the stop nearest to New York City will be in Westbury, N.Y., on April 16. Other cities on the tour include Baltimore, Atlantic City and Las Vegas [June 11 at the Mirage], with more dates to be announced."
In fact, TVWeek knows that King is quite the raconteur, and has for years told lots of stories about his career–many of them very funny–when he’s been hired as a speaker at various live events.
