Lewis Black

Grammy Award-winning stand-up comedian Lewis Black is one of the most prolific and popular performers today. He executes a brilliant trifecta as stand-up comedian, actor and author. His live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed-off optimist than mean-spirited curmudgeon. Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world.

Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth

After highly successful performances on Broadway and across the United States, Mike Tyson announced today that he will take his acclaimed one-man show, “”MIKE TYSON: UNDISPUTED TRUTH,”" to Toronto. Penned by his wife, Kiki Tyson, the show will take the stage in Air Canada Centre’s intimate theatre setting.

“After a successful run at the MGM in Las Vegas, on Broadway at the Longacre Theatre, and last year’s American tour, I’m excited to take ‘MIKE TYSON: UNDISPUTED TRUTH’ to Toronto and share it with my Canadian fans,” said Tyson. “‘Undisputed Truth’ is my story- I’m giving my all. I’m proud to take the show to a new audience.”

“MIKE TYSON: UNDISPUTED TRUTH” is a rare, personal look inside the life and mind of one of the most feared men ever to wear the heavyweight crown. This riveting one-man show goes beyond the headlines, behind the scenes and between the lines to deliver a must-see theatrical knockout.

By the age of 12, Tyson had been arrested 38 times. His journey from the dangerous streets of Brooklyn in the 1970s and early 1980s to becoming the youngest heavyweight champion of all-time, one of most recognized faces on the planet, and the most incredible fighter of his generation is exceptional. His mistakes, his joys, his sorrow, his life have been the source of countless articles, documentaries, movies, hearsay, and, most of all, fascination. Now, for the first time, Canadian audiences will get to better understand him, listening to Tyson himself.
