WWE superstar Mick Foley's new career in standup comedy is off to a rousing start: His one-night-only show at Side Splitters Comedy Club in Tampa tonight is sold out. Apparently, getting into the WWE Hall of Fame is funnier than we thought. Foley has a strikingly diverse resume that includes stints as a children's author, voice actor, radio host and he's even making an appearance today at the Santa Claus convention that's in town. But clearly his WWE fame means this rookie comedian has a built-in following.
