Three-time WWE champion, two-time New York Times No. 1 best-selling author and guest on 30 Rock, Mick “The Hardcore Legend” Foley lives up to his name. Whether he’s on the receiving end of a chokeslam through a 16-foot metal cage or behind a podium speaking to the students of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Foley always gives it his all. So grab your Mr. Socko and wear it with pride at Foley’s next adventure as a stand-up comedian Thursday at the Arlington Improv (309 Curtis Mathes Way). No barbwired bats or sledgehammers will be hidden under the stage, and he just might show up as Mankind, Cactus Jack, Dude Love or Jack Foley. Tickets cost between $25 and $35. The act starts at 8 p.m. For more information, call 817-635-5555 or visit improv.com.
