Sunday, March 15th Levity Live Comedy Club in West Nyack, NY welcomes WWE’s Hardcore Legend, Mick Foley. The 3-time WWE champion and 2-time New York Times #1 best-selling author has a one-man stage show called “Hardcore Legend: An Evening with Mick Foley.” In this show Foley tells his incredible stories of is time in the WWE using humor and intensity.
Mick has took his show worldwide with glowing praise where ever he goes. Best-selling author Paul O’Brien, writing for The Layfield Report wrote, “He always leaves them laughing. Laughing, standing at the end and always wanting more.” Even the decidedly non-wrestling publication Broadway Babies mused “If you’re interested at all in wrestling, you’ll love it; if you’re not, you’ll like it.”
Mick got the nickname “The Hardcore Legend” for his uncanny trait of taking punishment in some of the most dramatic matches in sports-entertainment history. No matter if he was Cactus Jack, Mankind, or as Mick he made the WWE fans always walk away amazed from his performance.
One of Foley’s most epic and brutal battle was with The Undertaker in 1998’s “Hell in a Cell” match, during which he was knocked unconscious after falls both off of and through the 16 foot Cell structure. Foley finished the match – with one of his front teeth lodged in his nose.
Mick wrote his autobiography of 700 pages all on notebook paper, which was later turned into “Have a Nice Day.” That book became number one on the New York Times best-seller list in October 1999. The book remained on the Times list for twenty six weeks. In 2001 Mick wrote “Foley is Good” and was on The New York Times list as well. Foley has published a total of ten books; four memoirs, four children’s books, and two novels.
I had the great pleasure of talking with Mick about his tour and WWE days. To listen to the interview click here!

Danika Yarosh is breaking out in a big way on the award-winning series, Showtime’s “Shameless,” where she currently portrays the troublemaker, bad influence, and overall too mature for her age, ‘Holly Herkimer.’ ‘Holly’ stands out as the best friend to ‘Debbie Gallagher’ (Emma Kenney), teaching ‘Debbie’ the “grown up world” of boys and girls.
Danika is a star in the making who can be seen in movie productions including “A Christmas Wedding Tail” with Jennie Garth, and “Retribution” with Frances Fisher. She has also guest starred on shows such as “Law & Order: SVU,” “In Plain Sight,” and “1600 Penn.” Most recently, she took on the recurring role of the ditzy, happy-go-lucky ‘Olivia,’ ‘Emily Hobbs’ (Ryan Newman) best friend, on the series “See Dad Run” with Scott Baio.
Art Eddy: Let’s first talk about “Shameless.” A lot of people love that show. It has a great cast. The writing is very clever. What to you makes this show stand out?
Danika Yarosh: I think there’s a lot that makes “Shameless” stand out. Despite all the chaos and craziness of the Gallagher clan, it’s all so raw and real, and I think a lot of people can relate to the characters and their situations, so you just really feel for them. I also think the fact that the show is so funny, yet so dramatic has made fans love it.
AE: I am a big of William H. Macy. As a young actor did you seek any advice from him or other veterans on that show and if so what did they say?
DY: Well, honestly, people never really give you straight up advice. It’s not like they’re going to say, “I’m going to give you some advice now.” But I could definitely say I’ve learned a few things from just watching other actors on set.
AE: Do you interact with fans on Twitter when the show is on?
DY: Oh, absolutely. Getting to hear that instant feedback is the best. I love talking to fans to see what they thought of the episode.
AE: If so what has been the funniest interaction with fans of the show?
DY: Ha! Okay, so, people either love Holly or they hate Holly (which is totally a good thing). So this season, when Debbie punched her in
the face, people were tweeting me some really hilarious, yet somewhat disturbing things as they were rooting Debbie on.
AE: You also recently starred in the film “The Color of Time” as the role of Irene with an all-star cast that includes James Franco, Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, and Zach Braff. Tell me a bit on that film and your character.
DY: It was such an honor to be in this project and work with such incredible people. “The Color of Time” follows the life of poet C.K. Williams. The film is actually based of a collection of poems written by him in a book called “Tar”, which is about the women in his life and how those experiences ultimately affected him. I play Irene, young C.K.’s first love who he meets by chance at a gathering. As the film progresses, and his future relationships become more complicated, he always flashes back to memories of Irene and the purity and innocence of that first encounter.
AE: You have been on quite a few shows. Do you remember your first role?
DY: Before I got into television and film, I was really big into theater. So I did that for a while. After I did a show in New York City for eight months, I decided to try out television/film and the first thing I booked was a role on an episode of “Law and Order: SVU.”
AE: What got you into acting?
DY: When I was four years old, they were shooting “The Stepford Wives” in my hometown. My mom was one of the Stepford Wives in it and since they needed some child extras, she brought me and my siblings along. As we were filming, I found myself absolutely loving it so I asked my mom if I could try out acting. She initially said no, but I still continued to ask and she finally agreed to let me take a class when I was seven.
AE: Who would you love to work with next?
DY: Ooh, that’s tough. There are so many people I would love to work with. Actor-wise, I’d say maybe Anthony Hopkins, Kevin Spacey, or Angelina Jolie. But if you’re talking about the industry in general, I’m also going to add that I would love to work with Ron Howard, David Fincher, or Darren Aronofksy.
AE: When you do have some down time from acting what are you usually doing?
DY: I’m usually hanging out with friends, at the movies, hiking, taking a yoga and/or dance class, at the archery range, reading a new book, at the beach, finding new music, or volunteering for Best Friends Animal Society.
