Now that Larry King has retired from “Larry King Live,” he’s fulfilling his comedy dreams. On Monday’s “Tonight Show,” King debuted his stand-up act.

First, King talked to Jay Leno about being on the air for 25 years, saying he has “mixed emotions” about giving up his nightly talk show. King compared the bittersweet sensation to “your mother-in-law going over the cliff in your new Cadillac.” Hiyo! He also cracked up Leno discussing the 45-year age difference between his oldest and youngest kids. His secret? Viagra.

Knowing King’s love of comedy, Leno invited him to perform. “Normally I don’t tell jokes, I just tell stories,” King said. “But Jay asked me to do a joke or two, so I’ll do it.” Watch him below:

Do you think King has a future in stand-up comedy? Should Leno invite him back for a regular segment?
