Saturday, June 20th The Tiger Room @ CS3 in Ft, Wayne, IN welcomes WWE’s Hardcore Legend, Mick Foley. His multi-faceted career has seen Foley turn from 3-time WWE champion to 2-time New York Times #1 best-selling author to his present incarnation as sole-proprietor of his one-man stage show "HARDCORE LEGEND: AN EVENING WITH MICK FOLEY.” Showcasing his trademark blend of wildness and warmth, and combining the humor fans loved from his books and in-ring “promos,” with the intensity of his most famous matches, “HARDCORE LEGEND: AN EVENING WITH MICK FOLEY” is by turns uproariously funny, simply surreal, and surprisingly sensitive - a full-course meal for the senses, including Q&A and meet and greet - all done with the use of a just one, solitary F-bomb. His shows have already garnered a collection of stellar reviews from around the globe. Chortle, the UK’s most respected comedy source said, “onstage, Foley is charm personified: eloquent, self-effacing and funny.” Best-selling author Paul O’Brien, writing for The Layfield Report raved, “He always leaves them laughing. Laughing, standing at the end and always wanting more.” Even the decidedly non-wrestling publication Broadway Babies mused “If you’re interested at all in wrestling, you’ll love it; if you’re not, you’ll like it.”
After speaking at some of the United States most respected colleges and universities – including MIT, Syracuse University, Notre Dame, and The University of Miami, Foley decided to take his verbal skills into the world of spoken-word and comedy - making his headlining debut in 2009, before a sold-out crowd at the world-famous Hollywood Improv. Mick has since performed at both the Montreal “Just For Laughs” Festival and the Edinburgh “Fringe Fest” – the two largest comedy festivals in the world, has headlined tours of the UK, Ireland and Australia, and performed for American service-members in the Middle-East and South Korea.
He was featured in a 2010 story on “ABC’s World News Tonight” for his work as an online volunteer with RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual assault organization. Foley was also recognized for his work with RAINN at 2010’s “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear” – where he was awarded a “Medal of Reasonableness” from Jon Stewart. He is one of the producers of the documentary 'I am Santa Claus', making its premiere in October 2014.
