Seasonal Special Happenings

The Bearded Beast

When: Wed., Jan. 8 2014

Were you really into watching wrestling on TV in grade school? Who wasn’t, am I right? Surely, you remember Mick Foley, the bearded (and sometimes masked) beast who was part of the WWE’s “meteoric rise” during the 1990s. Foley is still the onscreen GM for WWE’s Saturday morning slam, but he moonlights as a stand-up comedian. He delights crowds with anecdotes from the ring and other middle-aged white guy-type fare. He’s got his share of stupid one-liners, but he has a surprisingly personal touch on stage, often sitting to tell stories and reveling in off-the-cuff self-effacement. He’ll performs tonight at 7:30 at the Cleveland Improv. Tickets are $20. The Improv is also offering a special dinner package which starts at 6 p.m. for $39. (Alllard)
