For whatever reason, everyone and their mother thinks they can just jump into stand-up comedy and find success. Anyone who’s done stand-up before can tell you… not so much.

The jury’s out as to whether or not Larry King will be the exception to the rule. The former CNN talking head and interviewer is embarking on a stand-up tour soon, and CNN’s American Morning team has released an interview with King in which they chat about his new career path.

He’ll be performing two hours at the Mirage Hotel this weekend, apparently – hoo boy. Good luck, dude.
Watch the video below!
