Steve Harvey to tour with gospel star Franklin

NEW YORK (AP) - November 23, 2010

The comedian and the gospel star announced Tuesday that they're heading out on the road together starting in March.

In a statement, Harvey says it will be fun - and a challenge - trying to get through a clean show.

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.
