Radio and TV personality Steve Harvey is already worried about keeping his material clean on his upcoming comedy tour – because he’ll be joined by gospel star Kirk Franklin.
The comedian and the gospel star announced that they’re heading out on the road together starting in March, and Harvey says it’ll be a challenge trying to make sure he doesn’t offend the singer’s fans.
Franklin sums it up this way: “Steve brings the jokes and I bring that Jesus!”
Harvey is the new host of the TV game show “Family Feud.” Next month, he releases the book “Straight Talk No Chaser,” the follow-up to his best-selling “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.”
Franklin recently released his own book called “The Blueprint.”
The tour begins in Atlanta on March 19 and will make stops in Tampa, Nashville, North Charleston and Jacksonville. Dates are still being added.
Meanwhile, Steve and his wife, Marjorie, will be giving away thousands of birds nationwide through Steve’s syndicated radio show. The couple will be personally handing them out to families and senior citizens in need from noon to 3 p.m. today in Atlanta at the Adamsville Recreation Center, 3201 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive SW.
