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 this week.

King told the BBC last week that he thought Morgan was "good but not that dangerous".
