Tyson's enduring mass appeal owes not only to his incomparable athleticism, but to his huge personality and unrivalled showmanship. His ability to work a crowd extends far beyond the ring- Tyson's career in entertainment spans blockbuster movies (The Hangover and The Hangover 2), television (the Animal Planet's "Taking on Tyson"), an iPhone app called "Mike Tyson: Main Event", on iTunes. Tyson is also the CEO of his own production company, Tyrannic Productions, and currently has film projects in development.
Now, Tyson brings his talent to the stage with an extraordinary one-man show titled in the US, "Mike Tyson: UNDISPUTED TRUTH." The show has just ended a successful 2 week run on Broadway under famed director Spike Lee. This is the life story of the legend himself, as it has never been told before. Tyson unveils private stories, peeling back layers of tragedy and public turmoil while unfolding his tale of triumph and survival.
In an up-close-and-personal setting Tyson will share the stories of his life and experiences as a professional athlete and controversies in and out of the ring.
Theatrical, intimate, and unprecedented, this show will reveal the man behind the myth.
