Larry King standing up for one-man show

Posted on

Image Credit: Larry Marano/Getty ImagesLarry King, Ryan Seacrest, and a Lady Gaga song walk into a studio. Oh, wait, we already know how that one turns out. But why am I inspired to joke? Because Larry King announced he will star in a one-man show, entitled Larry King: Stand Up. Don’t, however, get too excited. Despite King’s repeated comments about wanting to pursue a career in stand-up comedy — and despite showing off said stand-up skills on The Tonight Show — King’s seven-city show “will offer theatergoers an inside look at his life and the ability to ask questions of the Emmy Award winner.” To me, that doesn’t sound like a show we can expect to see at Caroline’s anytime soon.

But! The description is also vague enough to make me wonder what exactly theatergoers will see in the show, which kicks off in Torrington, Conn. (home of the Torrington Fair Petco) on April 14. King’s camp was not available for comment, so we are only left to guess. So, I ask you, PopWatchers: What should the 77-year-old stand up for during his one-man show?
