Mick Foley recently spoke about his one-man shows. Here are the highlights…
On The Challenges of Doing a One Man Show: "The biggest challenge to me was finding out there's not only no shame in working on stories as opposed to creating entirely new shows in every city, but that you actually owe it to the audience to give them a show that you have worked on," Foley said. "I had to convince myself that I didn't need a new hour every time I hit the stage. So when I get to Huntsville, I'll make sure it's a special show and I'll incorporate some Alabama memories because the stories about the bad, old days are actually the best stories of all."
On Doing Meet and Greets With The Fans: "You know, they're more touching than funny," he said. "I just got this beautiful Christmas card from the mother of a special needs' child and I'll actually put it in my photo album. It meant so much to her to have her son Johnny incorporated into the show. They tend to be more nice, touching moments and there's usually several of them a night. Of course, there are nights when you wish you could just do your show and go home to get some rest. But it's part of the reason people come and it's one of the things they enjoy most. If you're in my shoes, and your goal is to leave people with the biggest possible smile on their face, then doing the meet-and-greet afterwards makes sense."
