Steve Harvey, one of "The Original Kings of Comedy" (D.L. Hughley, Cedric the Entertainer and the late Bernie Mac are the other Kings) is stepping down from his stand-up comedy throne after more than 25 years. Harvey will be laughing all the way to the bank during his retirement. Comedy opened the gateway to a successful career in TV ("The Steve Harvey Show," "Family Feud"), radio ("The Steve Harvey Morning Show") and movies ("Think Like a Man").
Why go: Harvey has taken a more spiritual tone to his comedy, but he's still funny as hell.
Reconsider: You never thought he was the funniest Original King.
8 p.m. Saturday at Civic Opera House, 20 N. Wacker Drive; $55-$65 (18+); 800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com
