The Emmy®, Peabody and CableAce Award-winning broadcast icon will give fans a hilarious and insightful look into his legendary life with two exclusive performances: one in Ottawa at the National Arts Centre; and the other in Toronto at Roy Thomson Hall, November 28 and 29, 2011, respectively.
Larry King's name has been woven into the fabric of North American culture by being invited into the living rooms of millions of people every night for 25 years on CNN. He has been kissed by Marlon Brando; he has tussled with Jerry Seinfeld; he was the first to sit down with ex-con Paris Hilton; and he has interviewed people that never give interviews, like the press-shy Frank Sinatra and circus master Guy Laliberté.
Starting with his life growing up as a street-smart kid in Brooklyn to being named the "most remarkable talk-show host on TV ever" (TV Guide), LARRY KING: STANDING UP is full of humorous anecdotes and stories from his incomparable broadcasting career. For Larry King Live on CNN, Larry King conducted more then 50,000 interviews, including every living US president and first lady since the Nixon administration, as well as the world's most famous celebrities and newsmakers. Success meant sitting down across the table from Larry King!
LARRY KING: STANDING UP marks Larry King's first stage appearance since completing his triumphant 25-year run on the award-winning Larry King Live, the first worldwide phone-in television talk show. Turning the tables for LARRY KING: STANDING UP, audiences will have the extraordinary opportunity to ask their own questions of the broadcast veteran at each performance.
