Posted on 03/20/2012 3:07:14 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
The Baddest Man on the Planet is dreaming about Broadway. Before his one-man show has even opened in Las Vegas, former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is already looking to take it to New York, according to TMZ.
He will perform "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth -- Live on Stage" at MGM Grand's Hollywood Theatre in Las Vegas from April 13-18, and is waiting to see how ticket sales go before planning a tour.
If a tour does go ahead, the Big Apple would be the main stop.
According to the report, Tyson has "always wanted to do a show on Broadway, and he feels this could be his chance." The show is expected to feature Tyson telling stories about his controversial personal life and career, accompanied by live music and video clips of him in the ring.

"..KEWL, they going to have a translator?"
Wait! what?!!! ROTFLMAO !!!!!
Even if I sat on the front row I won’t be able to understand a word thee thays...
It should be a hit!
A real "knock out" broadway show!
I’ll give it Two Thumbs and an Earlobe!
The circus isn’t hiring?
Mike Tyson is actually a perfect gentleman nowadays. Truly transformed. However, I question or deny that Mike T. has always wanted to do a show on Broadway. Thats just over the top!
About a dozen years ago, our southern California church had a men's retreat, and several fellows on a hike bumped into Tyson. It was near Big Bear, which at 7,000 feet elevation has long been a favorite training getaway for SoCal boxers (e.g., Oscar de la Hoya trained there); that may explain Tyson's presence there.
Anyway, he asked them why they were there, and when he heard he asked them to pray for him. I wasn't in their group at the time--only heard about it afterwards--so I cannot provide more detail than that, other than that they found him to be pleasant and engaging.
A one man freak show probably won’t be much of a draw. Now if he could get a bearded lady, a lobster boy, and a wild man from Borneo he might get a decent gate.
Oprah should have tried to get him to do a show to replace Rosie the queer whale!
