After 27 years in the game, stand-up comedian Steve Harvey is telling his final joke.
Best known for appearing in the acclaimed film The Original Kings of Comedy and his '90s sitcom The Steve Harvey Show, the comic is taking his final bow tomorrow at a show in Las Vegas. That's according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Pay-Per-View special is the final show on his farewell comedy tour that has been running throughout the US all year.
“The road to this final show has been an amazing journey, doing stand-up for the past 27 years, and I can’t thank fans enough after reflecting on all those years on stage,” said Steve in a statement. "(This last show) will be bigger than any show I've done so far."
That being said, this is hardly a rocking chair retirement for Steve. He's debuting a new daytime talk show next month called Steve Harvey while still remaining the host of game show Family Feud. And if that's not enough, he's still doing his morning radio show called The Steve Harvey Morning Show. Basically, quitting stand-up just means that Steve might be able to get some sleep for once.
