One night only at the Headquarters Library! Wrestler Mick Foley on August 24 @ 2pm.
“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.”
In April 2013, Foley was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Musician Tori Amos called Foley “the poet of the wrestling world.”
This is a free event, open to all ages, and made possible by the generosity of the Friends of the Library.
