Uh-Oh Steve Harvey fans…you may not be too happy with this news…
…but your favorite comedian and radio personality Steve Harvey will retire from stand-up comedy and is scheduled to make his last comedy performance next month, in August.
In an interview with The Augusta Chronicle in March, Harvey stated that sometimes in order to go to the next level, “the thing you shed is going to have to be something that you care very deeply about.”
Harvey’s final stand will air live from Las Vegas on Pay-Per-View on August 2 at 11 p.m. EST. as part of the 10th Ford Hoodie Awards.
“Celebrating this 10th anniversary is very special,” Steve said in a statement. “The Hoodie Awards is an awards show for everyday men and women, honoring them as the real stars of their neighborhoods for their beliefs, courage, and commitment pursing their dream and serving their fellow neighbors and youth. I look forward to hosting an unforgettable weekend and seeing who will take home the Hoodie Awards this year!”
The four-day event will kick off at the MGM Grand and the show will take place on August 4.
