*Comedian Steve Harvey recently surprised listeners of  his “Steve Harvey Morning Show” with some startling news.

The “Family Feud” host said that he plans to retire from doing stand up—and that his last stand up routine will be performed next year at the 2012 Hoodie Awards.

Harvey disclosed the news after reading an email on the air from a listener who had heard rumors that Harvey was quitting his syndicated radio show.

“This is my Jamaican background,”Harvey joked.  “I don’t quit no job. No, sir. That’s not me.”

No doubt the Hoodies will be packed when Harvey performs his stand up routine for the last time.
