Spike & Mike Broadway

You may recall March news in which, chatting with Dan Patrick on his radio show, Mike Tyson confirmed he was going to put on his own show on the Las Vegas strip - a 1-man show that was then titled Tyson: The Raw Truth, which was to debut in March.

The show, which includes video and photos, is, as the title states, indeed raw, with Iron Mike dishing on all his personal and professional challenges, and it actually debuted in April, with a title change - The Undisputed Truth.

Also, Tyson said he would bring his act to Broadway next year (2013), telling the London's Daily Telegraph, "It's therapeutic to talk about what I've lived through in front of hundreds of people. And when you've been in rehab, you're very comfortable talking about yourself."

So Tyson on Broadway... let that sink in for a minute :)

Ok, moving on...

Announced early this morning, via The Daily BeastSpike Lee is reportedly going to direct Tyson's one-man show when it comes to Broadway, which they are also saying will happen later this year (not 2013), with producer Eric Nederlander, signed on to produce the project.

This will be new territory for Spike; yes, I know he filmed a stage production Passing Strange; but he's ever actually directed a Broadway show before. So this should be interesting. Granted it's a one-man show, but he could get creative with it.

Anyone seen Tyson's act in Las Vegas? Thoughts?
