Larry King Tries His Hand at Comedy

After moving on from Larry King Live after 25 years, the longtime talk show host will try his hand at comedy. King’s stand-up sets will focus on a “hilarious and insightful look” at King’s life, starting with his childhood as a “street-smart kid in Brooklyn,” as well as his career as a CNN show host.

“Larry King’s style and wit will give audiences an evening to remember,” the producers stated in a recent announcement. Audience members will be able to turn the tables on King at each performance in a Q&A session that will have the host on the receiving end of questions and remarks.

For the first time since retiring, King appeared in his old timeslot last night—this time as a guest on his replacement Piers Morgan’s show. King had recently remarked that Morgan “oversold” himself in his bid to take over the evening timeslot. See King’s segment on Piers Morgan Tonight as well as some dates for his comedy performances below.
