Well, he HAS been at it for over a quarter of a century, and with the immense success he's enjoying in other areas - books, radio, TV, film, and probably more, it makes sense.
Can't do it all; too much of a load to carry I think.
Steve Harvey will headline his final stand-up show event, tomorrow, Thursday, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, promising that it "will be bigger than any show I’ve done so far" - a 2-hour finale that's part of his ongoing nationwide farewell comedy tour, that will kick off this year’s Hoodie Awards (the annual event Harvey co-founded that honors local black-owned businesses, schools and religious and community leaders).
The MGM Grand show will also be available on Pay Per View and VOD eventually.
Up next for Harvey is a syndicated daytime TV talk show, which debuts on September 4.
“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,” Harvey said in a statement.
