WWE legend Mick Foley to bring comedy show to Waynesboro
2013 WWE Hall of Fame inductee Mick Foley is bringing his critically acclaimed comedy show to Waynesboro, Va., on Saturday, April 13. The Tales from Wrestling Past Comedy Show and Q&A is coming to the Louis Spilman Auditorium at Waynesboro High School, 1200 W. Main St., Waynesboro, Va.
Tickets for the 4 p.m. show are $20 online and $25 at the door.
“I really enjoy being up onstage,” said Foley, who began touring the standup comedy circuit in 2011. “It reminds me of my days as commissioner in WWE in 2000 when I had a microphone and could basically say anything I wanted to. I miss those days, so I take advantage of the opportunity to re-create that feeling.”
Foley, who is also a bestselling author, is just back from a tour of Australia, and will be off later in April on an extended tour of the UK.
The show, Foley said in an interview with the Kansas City website Pitch.com, is primarily intended for a wrestling audience, but he tries to “make it very welcoming to those brave enough to wander in from the cold.”
“Probably my favorite review of one of my shows was from a decidedly non-wrestling fan, reviewing me for a decidedly non-wrestling online magazine called Broadway Babies. Her final line was, ‘If you’re interested in wrestling, you’ll love it. And if you’re not, you’ll like it.’ A lot of reviewers have gone out of their way to state that they enjoyed the show despite not being a wrestling fan. I take a lot of pride in that,” Foley said.
