Antediluvian TV softball-question interviewer Larry King will step aside from hosting his prime-time show this fall after 25 years, he announced Tuesday.
"It is important to Larry that he end the show before he his not in control of his faculties," said Sid Gelman, Executive Producer of Larry King Live (LKL). "He doesn't have much time."
"Pizza cheese is melty, but licking the oven gives me ouchies," said King, when asked about his retirement. "I'm wrinkling, somebody should iron me."
King waxed nostalgic about his 25 year run: "At home is where my sandbox is. I'm not allowed to go in the deep end. That's where I saw the leprechaun!"
King says his show will end in September. "I like sleep. That's where I'm a Viking!"
