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 punch-lines.

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 unique combination
of wit and easy-going, understated charm he’s sure to enthrall fans old and new from behind the

Mick made his debut as a stand-up comic in 2009 at the world famous Improv in Los Angeles,
California. Since then he’s shared his anecdotes and observations with audiences across the
length and breadth of America. In November of this past year Mick made his eagerly anticipated
UK stand-up comedy debut with his Nights In Red Flannel 2011 tour, selling our theatres and
comedy clubs across England and Scotland. Nearly three thousand fans saw Mick perform and took
advantage of the chance to meet one of their heroesin person. Such was the success of the 2011 tour
that fans were clamouring for his return immediately.

Due to Mick’s recent return to WWE, the worldwide leader in sports entertainment, he will be
unable to dedicate the time he would like to comedy in the coming years. Because of this the 2012
Nights In Red Flannel return tour will be his last international comedy tour for the foreseeable
future. This may indeed be his fans’ last chance to see him in such cosy, intimate venues before the
vast arenas of WWE spirit him away. When audiences left his recent shows they were absolutely
buzzing, excited to have been part of such a funny and memorable show.

As a professional wrestler, Mick Foley has a resume that is almost unparalleled in the industry.
Since his debut in 1985 Mick has worked alongside and opposite a veritable who’s who of the
wrestling business; Hulk Hogan, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
are among his contemporaries. Mick’s comedic talents were famously showcased during a TV
segment with “The Rock” on WWE’s Monday Night Raw programme in 1999 that attracted an
audience record which stands to this day. The former King Of The Death Match is also revered
for his dramatic, shocking and physically gruelling matches. His infamous 1998 “Hell In A Cell”

bout with WWE icon The Undertaker is one of the most watched and discussed contests of all
time. His ability to shift between light-hearted hilarity and ice-cold intensity has made Mick one
of the most fascinating characters in wrestling. This can be seen in Barry Blaustein’s feature
documentary, “Beyond The Mat” which features Mick heavily.

Mick’s track record outside the ring is impressive enough in its own right. His
autobiography, “Have A Nice Day: A Tale Of Blood & Sweatsocks”, shot to the top of the New
York Times best-seller list upon its release in 1999. Hugely successful and critically acclaimed, it
appealed to wrestling-fans and non wrestling-fans alike. His TV credits include shows as diverse
as Robot Wars, Boy Meets World and Jon Stewart’s Daily Show. Away from the spotlight Mick is
an advocate and volunteer for RAINN, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, devotes time to
numerous charitable causes yet still finds time to indulge his passion for theme parks, Halloween
and Tori Amos.
