From working on tapings for popular game show “Family Feud” to his syndicated radio morning show, the funnyman is literally too busy. He’s got to let something go.
Although his first love is on standup comedy, Harvey’s going to give that one up for the time being, but only to start a new project, a talk show called … “Steve Harvey.”
“I want to do a daytime show that is inspirational, uplifting and insightful. Then, the twist I’m going to put on it is that, in the middle of the day, it’s going to be funny.”
“Steve Harvey” debuts this fall and will be airing in four-fifths of homes across the nation. Expect lots of entertainment and laughs. The new show will be one part Oprah, one part Carol Burnett, one part Conan and maybe even one part “American Idol.”
“It will involve singers and … it will be entertaining and inspirational. People love to see someone given a shot to see what they do with it,” said Harvey.
Harvey also admits, this has been a life long dream of his and finally it’s coming to pass.
“Having a talk show has been on my bucket list for years. It just never came to fruition. Finally, this year it is coming true. So, unknowingly, all my appearances on shows like Oprah and Good Morning America were laying the groundwork for me to go to daytime TV. I feel that now I am seasoned, so I’m ready to go.”
