Mike Tyson

First Las Vegas, Then ... BROADWAY!!!

Mike Tyson is best known for taking a bite out of a guy's ear, but now he has his sights set on taking a bite of the Big Apple -- he wants to take his one-man Las Vegas show ... to Broadway!

Sources close to the boxing legend tell TMZ that even though the show has yet to open in Sin City, Iron Mike wants to take it on tour and then tackle the Great White Way. We're told Tyson has always wanted to do a show on Broadway, and he feels this could be his chance. 

According to our sources, Tyson and his people are waiting to see how the Vegas show sells first before planning a tour of any kind (with NYC being the main stop). We're told the show has sold well so far, but hasn't sold out yet.

"Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" runs from April 13-18 at the MGM Grand.

"best known for taking a bite out of a guy's ear"??! Er... I guess you've never watched boxing. He's actually best known for being one of the (if not the) best boxers of all time.

Why are stupidity and violence so celebrated in the media? Any savage who intentionally bites another man's ear off should be shunned for life!

Acual MT quotes:


Boxing promoter Dan Duva on Mike Tyson hooking up again with promoter
Don King:
"Why would anyone expect him to come out smarter? He went to prison for
three years, not Princeton."



Mike Tyson Quotes

"I could sell out Madison Square Garden masturbating,"

"I want your heart, I want to eat your children."

"If Lewis tries to intimidate me again I will put a bullet
in his skull."

"I want your grandkids and great-grandkids to remember me
and say 'Wow, what a bizarre individual.' "

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Not interested, but I'd go just to see how he handles it when somebody's cell phone rings.

I think we can honestly and safely say Mike will not last in Vegas, there will be no tour and there's no chance in hell he's going to Broadway. Case closed. I

Is this one man show like "Charlie Sheen's Torpedo of Truth" tour?
.
I'm sorry, whether reformed or not, I can't get past what he's done over the years. I wouldn't attend this show if someone offered me "FREE" front row tickets.

I hope this is a joke. A show doing what? He can barely speak much less sing. So exactly what are people paying to see? His best gig is a boxing coach.
