King has appeared on many TV talk shows such as "The View," "The Today Show," "Sally Jesse Raphael," and twice on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno (most recently as a part of Leno's final week as host). Releasing his latest album in 2010, "NINETEEN", with jazz icon Mike Renzi (now available on iTunes), he has performed on the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon for 8 consecutive years live from Las Vegas, the Mabel Mercer Foundation's "Cabaret Convention" for 5 years, and originated the voice of "Oscar" on Discovery Kids' "Kenny The Shark."
