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 headlined his final stand-up show event, exactly a week ago, Thursday, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, in what he called "bigger than any show I’ve done so far" - a 2-hour finale that was part of his nationwide farewell comedy tour. It also kicked 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 full MGM Grand show will 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.

Watch his tearful goodbye below:

    If he's saying goodbye to comedy, does that mean he's saying hello to alternative platforms to pedal his defective patriarchal, sexist, gender policed ideologies. As a premier comedian I find worry that he will no longer tell jokes - with his lack of social, political and common sophistication tells me that we can expect more books like "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man" and more public appearances that capitulate binary thing. Sigh. Farewell. And I guess, somewhat unfortunately, Hello. All at the same damn time.
