Mike Tyson, the prostitute hunter? You don’t say. We know Mike is a tad on the cray cray side. He likes to eat ears for gawd’s sake. Well on the Today show this morning, we found out that the boxing legend is doing a one-man Broadway show called Undisputed Truth. Mike and his play’s director Spike Lee sat down to talk about his troubled past of drug abuse and his jail terms and women.
Tyson explained, “I [finally] threw up the white flag. There [were] too many prison cells. Too many jails. Too many lawyers. Too many lawsuits. Too many bankruptcies. Too many women. Too many venereal diseases. Too many everything. I want to live a different life… I was a prostitute hunter.”
So what will this Broadway play do for Tyson’s image? Lee told Ann Curry, “[He will show] the same courage he displayed in the ring. I think it will take just as much courage to go on stage, when you bare your soul to the audience. It’s captivating.”
Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth had a limited run in Las Vegas earlier this year.
As long as there is no ear gnawing, I think I would possibly check this one out.
