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.
