So Mike Tyson is Getting His Own One-Man Show in Vegas

By 02.23.12

Mike Tyson revealed that he will host his own one-man show on the Las Vegas strip. The show will be called, “Tyson: The Raw Truth,” and will air in March. The 45-year-old former heavyweight champ told Robin Leach that the show will feature video and photo flashbacks as he adds his own unique commentary and personal confessions. No punches will be pulled and the tumultuous fighter will discuss sensitive subjects like his marriage to actress Robin Givens as well as his six years in prison from his rape conviction. The location of the show has yet to be announced. “It will be raw. Nothing will be held back. He's not going to shrink from the problems he's faced and the battles he's fought professionally and personally. It will be unfiltered, and he'll tell it like it is,” one of Tyson's friends claimed. “The project has the full blessing of his wife Lakiha and their family.” The show will also have Tyson take questions from the audience and hold meet and greets after the show. How could you not be entertained by the once feared Mike Tyson tell you his life story in his own, inaudible, high-pitched words?

Tyson also confirmed that he will be in “The Hangover, Part 3.”  The comedy hit is slated to hit move theaters on Memorial Day 2013 and hopefully Iron Mike got a raise because his “Hangover” co-stars, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms are all rumored to get a generous raise this film, raking in $15 million each for the third installment.
