He's a three-time WWE champion, a hardcore legend and a member of the WWE Hall of Fame. Now, Mick Foley is unleashing the same trademark blend of wit and wisdom, wildness and warmth that made his books so beloved (five self-penned New York Times best-sellers) into his one-man spoken-word stage show, “Tales From Wrestling Past”. Foley has wowed both crowds and critics alike with his unique stage show – leading “Chortle”, the UK’s most respected comedy source to write “Foley himself is charm personified – eloquent, funny and self-effacing” and the decidedly non-wrestling publication “Broadway Baby” to muse, “if you’re interested at all in wrestling you’ll love it; if you’re not, you’ll like it.” Drawing from his 28 years of travel, Foley finds humor in the unlikeliest of places – the loss of an ear, the “dedication” of a porn-star working in a knee-brace, a United States President reciting his wrestling catch-phrase. Foley himself refers to “Tales From Wrestling Past” as “like being in the ring, without getting hurt” – a welcome distinction coming from a man who gave so much, to so many, for so long. Join the Hardcore Legend on his latest journey down life’s highway – an eclectic trip into the surreal world of the days of wrestling past.
Pro-Wrestling's Hardcore Legend, Mick Foley returns to The Improv for a huge Post-Summerslam Jam to benefit RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual assault organization.
Foley brings the same appealing blend of wit and wisdom, wildness and warmth that earned two of his memoirs the #1 spot on the New York Times best-seller list to the Improv stage - making his show a sure-fire hit for fans of wrestling and comedy alike. Mick not only recounts memorable moments from his storied career, but explains why 27 years in the world of sports-entertainment makes him uniquely qualified to offer hilarious insight into politics, pornography and world peace.
Whether he's in the ring, on the stage, on the page, or holding court as the Daily Show's "Senior Ass-Kicker", there is no doubt that "Foley is Good."
50% of all ticket sales will be donated to RAINN
