Larry King is a broadcasting legend whose name is synonymous with success in modern culture, you aren’t a success until you’ve sat across the table from Larry King.
Larry King is a name that has been woven into the fabric of American culture, 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’s tussled with Jerry Seinfeld; he was the first to sit down with Paris Hilton after she left prison; he’s interviewed people that never give interviews like the press-shy Frank Sinatra; and his coverage of 9/11 will forever be remembered.
The tables have been turned on the long running legend and he sees himself put in the hot seat. Larry King has been asking the questions for 50 years in broadcasting and that’s a lot of questions, and you would have to think it would be a lot of funny stories to relay.
The brand new stage show, LARRY KING: STANDING UP, gives fans a funny and penetrating peek into the life of the legend at each of his exclusive, one-night only performances for Australian audiences. The Emmy, Peabody and CableACE Award-winning broadcaster starts his show with tales of his life growing up in Brooklyn as a street-smart kid and moves through to tales from his career as the greatest interviewer of all time.
To be honoured with a mantle like that one he has to have been doing something right and I’m sure his style and sense of humour will ensure audiences will be treated to an evening they won’t soon forget. This unique set of shows will be King’s first stage performances since the close of his 25-year stint on the award-winning CNN program “Larry King Live”
LARRY KING: STANDING UP is an exclusive one-night only experience that is coming to the east coast of Australia this October/November.

My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
