LOS ANGELES, Feb 22 (Reuters) - Larry King is getting his
turn do the talking.
The veteran TV interviewer, who left his "Larry King Live"
CNN show after 25 years in December, is launching a series of
one man comedy shows in April about his life and work called
"Larry King: Standing Up," producers said on Tuesday.
King, 77, will give fans "a hilarious and insightful look"
at his life both behind and in front of the cameras. The
one-night-only shows will cover his life growing up as a
street-smart kid in Brooklyn to tales from his career as the
man who interviewed presidents, generals and celebrities.
"Larry King's style and wit will give audiences an evening
to remember," producers Base Entertainment and Karl Enema said
in a statement.
Audiences will also get the chance to ask King some
questions of their own on the tour, which starts April 14 in
Torrington, Connecticut and will play venues in Atlantic City
and Las Vegas with more dates to be announced later.
King stepped down from his nightly CNN show amid falling
ratings, saying he wanted to spend more time with his family.
His time slot on CNN was taken by brash Briton Piers
Morgan, who will interview King in a show to be broadcast later
King told the BBC last week that he thought Morgan was
"good but not that dangerous".
