I have always love watching CNN because of your show.
If there is only one show i try not to miss, that is your show
I started watching your show 2001 when i was in my country even with limited access to satellitechannels.
Now am in the USA and am happy to have access to electricity and good resources, i watch your show every day and i have not been dissapointed.
YOU DID A GREAT JOB. Younger generation should always look at your archived show when you leave and learn how to work with passion.

AsaTheComic is a well known internet personality who did a phenomenal job on this interview with Larry! Larry and Asa had great chemistry and it was really fun to watch!

Not a single comment or congratulations for the winner? Come on! Be sportive. Well, I could not win because the winner spent 75% of the time asking about me (indirectly) that I could not have asked or rather did not ask! Done. What about your failure?

That was a great interview.

Raymond Codjo Tohouenou   December 15th, 2010 8:58 am ET

Larry King we are going to miss you so much.Thanks for taking CNN and your show beyond borders.
Wish you well.God bless you.

Asa, his wife and kids are a true unit and each one supports and uplifts the other. Asa is a self-made man. There are things that all add up to an amazing future of success for he and his family.
1. his talent and his wife's
2. their determination
3. their passion and genuine concern for the world
4. their connection to each other and the kids
infallible combination... 🙂

Great job with the interview Asa! Your light is shining brightly! I'm proud to be a member of the Asathecomic Fam!

Michelle   December 15th, 2010 2:26 pm ET

Asa deserves his own show as well. Nice Interview.

Larry after all these year...there is still so much to learn about will be missed ...what will it be like not having you sit behind that about icon...the suspenders and the backdrop will forever be Larry King.

I don't know how the public can get along without your fine show. We will certainly miss it and hope to see you often on TV in other programs. You are certainly one of the very top interviewers. You always elicit such interesting information and reactions from interviewees. You always get to the heart of an issue and of a person. TV really needs compassionate people such as yourself. I imagine your comments and show have truly helped millions, some of whom may have really been encouraged in great difficulties by your thoughts and presence.

I particularly recall your kindness in the tragic loss of Michael Jackson, through that difficult time especially for his family but also for the whole world. Thank God you were with us at that time! I posted often on your blog then and am still struck by the untimely and criminal loss of such a great talent. I always knew I could post on your blog, and I appreciate your blog's archive and your commitment to saving people's comments, particularly since I've shared about identity theft and how today's dangerous thieves seek sometimes to wipe out one's whole identity, especially perhaps online.I also shared on your blog when you focused on women and domestic violence. I do think your show and blog have done so much good!

I never got to share some things I wanted to–one was an episode I went through similar to the Valley Swim Club story when I was in my 20s and was working with the YMCA Tutor Project in the inner cities in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. I have had to wait for a while to post on your blog until I could get my computer glasses, which are, by the way, very helpful.

Great good luck to you, and please let us keep hearing from you on TV when possible!

Movin on up Asa! Excellent job man! Congrats!

Great letter Martha. Thanks. That's all inclusive. Regards, Manideepa

lillyana   December 16th, 2010 9:14 am ET

Asa did a great job and was really funny. i thoguht that it was really cool that someone go to ask Larry King Questions. i just wish it was longer.

Gurhan   December 16th, 2010 9:18 am ET

Fair quality Asa!

Matthew Montaleone   December 16th, 2010 9:19 am ET

AsaTheComic is well known on the internet and I an outstanding person. He has personally showed me how to be out going and how to be a man. Of course he killed in with the interview with larry one the best I have seen in a while

exo099   December 16th, 2010 9:25 am ET

I love Larry King, I love Asa, both of them are inspirations for me for doing what you do best and enjoy the process. I really enjoy the show on this one, the Cop story really touch me and move my heart!

Trisha Collins   December 16th, 2010 9:35 am ET

Asa you did a great job! You are destined to fame! I am happy to be a part of your 'fam'! You will continue to have my support in everything you do!

Rick P.   December 16th, 2010 9:51 am ET

Asa sent us here. He is a such a talented and driven individual. He represents himself well. No wonder he won the contest. This interview just further proves the point that he should have his own talk show someday. Great job! Google him folks. Asathecomic.

Beijejr   December 16th, 2010 10:45 am ET

Great job Asa!

Andrew Duval   December 16th, 2010 11:00 am ET

Asa did a stand up, professional job on this interview, and Larry loved the suit. Lol. The fact that Asa handled this with such professionalism shows his experience and dedication to his craft, so why he doesn't have his own show by now is a shame but I doubt a permanent problem. The support he gets from his family, friends, and the Asa Fam, will hopefully help to further skyrocket him to the place where he belongs. In front of a camera, being transmitted into our living rooms. Great Job Asa. 🙂

Rose   December 16th, 2010 11:29 am ET

Asa is a Youtube celebrity that continues to make me laugh non stop. I am proud of him for winning this... he is a hrd working man that loves what he does and goes hard with it... good luck Asa.. I wish you the best and hope you get your own show.

Meanmug713   December 16th, 2010 11:38 am ET

This was an amazing interview with rising star Asathecomic, interview the king of interview and the legend himself Larry King. You have millions of people that would kill for this opportunity and couldn't have chosen anybody greater. Thank you Mr. Larry King for 25 years.

Lucas   December 16th, 2010 1:00 pm ET

This was great! I enjoyed it immensely and I'm going to miss you, Larry!

Asa did a wonderful job and I expect big things from that man!

ATTENTION CNN AND LARRY!!! It's good to be the KING, and you have shown all of us you have the ability to talk with a child to an adult, with the respect everyone deserves. Wishing you many MAZEL TOv's, in the future. I have a feeling you'll be back, Happy, Healthy New Year to you and you loved ones. Please try tonight to post this. If you shed a tear, it only shows real men do cry, when they have big Hearts. Eveyone will be watching, here's a kiss to take when the lights go off. Tuck it inside,kisses are good, but can't compare to your excellent work for the past 25 years. JanePr21........

Shirley Behlen   December 16th, 2010 10:24 pm ET

I'm devastated tha Larry will not be on for me anymore. I can't take it. No one else had his range of guests so consistently.

He has to be back in some regular capacity.

Lynn Rosenberg   December 16th, 2010 10:47 pm ET

Dear Larry,

I not only watched and enjoyed and learned from your show over the last many years, but came to rely upon it and you as to what was going on in the world. Your entertainment shows were also great.

You will be so missed. I am sad and sorry you are leaving but look forward to whatever specials you may do, and wish you the best.

Warm regards,
Lynn Rosenberg

Debra Sharkey   December 17th, 2010 1:14 am ET

Dear Mr. King: As long as I have been an adult watching news, there has always been Larry King Live. The best shows are where you liked your guest & they could make you laugh (or at least make your eyes wrinkle in the coners.) No matter how many countries I travelled to (34 in total), if they had CNN , I did watch. It was something
familiar & comfortable. This viewer will miss you very much Mr. King
& your "even" interviewing. Not what is offered on the other news
networks. Be Well Mr. King & God Bless you & yours. I will
look forward to any specials you appear on on CNN. I will watch the next 2 weeks of "review" shows. Thank you Mr. King for a great
25 years. Debra Sharkey

Kyoko   December 18th, 2010 5:37 pm ET

I have been watching you since I came here USA from Japan, before I had my children and after they grown up for more than 25 years. My son is 25 years old now. Thank you for entertaining, educate, informed and more. I am truly enjoyed your show and very often I discovered people whom you interviewed. You enriched people's life. We will miss you deeply. Please let us know about your radio show. I will be listening.
My best of wishes to you and your family.

D. Lockhart   December 21st, 2010 3:39 am ET

Mr. King made the art of interviewing look easy.

A class act in every sense of the word. We salute you.

Burhan Moallim   December 29th, 2010 6:35 am ET

DEAR LARRY I started watching your program for over 20 years. You and Oprah are some of those very few TV personalities that will be missed all over the world. We will miss you as a person and we will miss your no nonsene interviews with politicians and celeberties.

For 25 years you have been inviting to your program the elite I wish
you invite the common man, one of the little ones before you go. Some one like me.
