From a press release:

A week before WWE Live returns to the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre, the Honky Tonk Man, a former WWE pro wrestler and self-proclaimed “greatest intercontinental champion of all time,” will bring his one-man show of stories and opinions to the new Scranton Comedy Club at the Ramada Inn in Clarks Summit on Thursday, Jan. 18 at 7 p.m.

He will host a “no holds barred” Q&A at the end of the night, and club owner Kevin Lepka and Scranton comedian Erich Drexler will open the show.

Tickets, which are $15 for general admission or $25 for VIP stage side seats (limited quantity) in advance, are on sale now via Eventbrite or call 570-357-2693 for reservations. Tickets will be $20 at the door (820 Northern Blvd., Clarks Summit).

He is bold, outspoken, and controversial. He has been called the “greatest intercontinental champion of all time.” He is the legendary Honky Tonk Man. Currently on the independent circuit, he previously worked for World Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Entertainment, where he most recently appeared in 2013.

With his long, chop sideburns and his black, slicked back hair, Roy Wayne Farris is one of the most recognizable and popular WWE Legends ever. He has sold out arenas all over the world, facing off against the biggest and baddest stars in wrestling history, including Hulk Hogan, Jake Roberts, Ricky Steamboat, Dusty Rhodes, Randy Savage, the Ultimate Warrior, the Legion of Doom, George Steele, and Bruno Sammartino.

HTM is world-famous for his WWE career, where he held the Intercontinental Championship for a record 64 weeks, a record that still stands to this day. During his most recent stint with the WWE between 2008 and 2010, HTM inducted Koko B. Ware into the 2009 WWE Hall of Fame and feuded with then WWE Intercontinental Champion Santino Marella. He returned to “WWE Monday Night Raw” in 2013 and hit Heath Slater with his famous guitar. His outspoken demeanor and bold opinions have made him one of the most controversial and captivating names in professional wrestling.

The Honky Tonk Man is now hosting the “Shake, Rattle and Roll One Man Stage Show.” This is a one-hour, complete, audience interactive event mixing comedy, stories from the road, and “shoot-style” opinions and observations on the world of professional wrestling.

This show is a must-see for all wrestling fans, but it is also highly entertaining for non-wrestling fans as well. Every show will conclude with a Q&A and meet and greet session, allowing fans to meet the one and only Honky Tonk Man.
