He's a former WWE champion, a hardcore legend and a New York Times best-selling author. He's a globetrotting athlete and entertainer that has bled and sweated for hundreds of thousands of fans all across the world. Now Mick Foley has exchanged the world of headlocks, steel chairs and punches for the world of stories, banter and punchlines.
Universally acclaimed as one of the most entertaining talkers in professional wrestling, Mick has decided to unleash his verbal talents on the world of stand-up comedy. With his understated combination of wit and easy-going, understated charm he's sure to enthrall fans old and new from behind the microphone.
In his one man show, Mick finds that escaping the worldwide shadow of WWE and one infamous match in particular has proven to be the greatest challenge of his twenty seven year career. Along the way he also finds time to explain that his rollercoaster ride through the world of professional wrestling has given him a unique insight into subjects as diverse as politics, pornography and the quest for world peace.
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.
