Larry King - the one-man show?
The former host of CNN’s  Larry King Live will kick off a national tour of a new autobiographical show, called “Larry King: Standing Up,” in the spring. 
It will take a comedic look at his “life growing up as a street-smart kid in Brooklyn” and his decades as a broadcast journalist, according to the release.
King also will participate in a Q&A with audience members at each performance, directed by Jim Millan, creative director of the Kids in the Hall comedy troupe.
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 include Baltimore, Atlantic City and Las Vegas, with more dates to be announced.
Next up for King: He is going to be interviewed by successor Piers Morgan Wednesday.
