Larry King Plans Comedy Tour
Larry King will be steering his career in a new direction after signing off of his CNN show on Dec. 16: The longtime talk show host says he wants to do a comedy tour.
King told New York magazine, "I'm funny. I'm going to do stand-up. That's what I love."
King has been approached with numerous job offers for his post-Larry King Live life, including hosting a show called Bright People where "both sides would be heard. With dignity." King hasn't agreed to any work on any of the proposed projects besides hosting four specials a year for CNN but he is intent on keeping busy. "I’m worried it’s 4:30 in the afternoon and I don’t have anywhere to go,” he said.
America's Got Talent judge Piers Morgan takes over Larry King Live with his own show, Piers Morgan Tonight, in January.
