Mick Foley is funny. If you're a wrestling fan, you know this. If you're not, read his New York Times best-selling autobiographies. The man has a gift for storytelling. The hardcore legend and soon-to-be WWE Hall of Famer didn't disappoint during four nights at Stanford and Sons Comedy Club -- right here, in Kansas City, Kansas (read my preview interview here). I attended the 7:45 p.m. Friday set, which seemed to end way too soon -- even for Foley, who begged the club for extra time, despite having another show later. He also asked if the club would discount tickets for anyone who wanted to stick around, but the late show was already sold out. Foley mixed his storytelling with a Q&A session and the highlight was a story about going to Amsterdam's Red Light District with Al Snow and The Rock and watching a live sex show in which a guy "worked hurt." I'll let Foley tell the story, but the knee brace wearing guy wasn't exactly enjoying his work. There were plenty of Harley Race stories as well as Foley recounting how he lost his ear in Germany (and Booker T's freaked out reaction). He also shared how he met Barry Bonds, who seemed a tad unapproachable. It was a great set that left me wanting more. I'd like to see Foley headline an auditorium where he can headline with all the time he wants (sort of what Kevin Smith has been doing -- and Foley has done in the past on college campuses). After the show, Foley did a meet and greet, signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. For a guy who spent his career beating people with steel chairs and barbed-wire baseball bats, he's really, really nice. If you get a chance to see him -- Foley is doing four nights in Iowa January 16-19 -- go.
