WWE Legend Mick Foley @ The Rio Theatre, Santa Cruz CA
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.
