I have been enthralled by wrestling for 25 years. I’m talking WWE-style. That’s a significant portion of my 31 years on the planet. I grew up with Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and King Kong Bundy. I ordered every Pay-Per-View event. I went to see the shows live at the Civic Arena in Pittsburgh with my dad. I owned the action figures. I was a Hulkamaniac. To this day, I still respect the success of WWF/WWE – fake, not fake – whatever you think.
One of the great personalities in wrestling history is Rowdy Roddy Piper. This week I found out he is performing at the Hollywood Improv. Comedy and Wrestling? Are you kidding me? Only Comedy and Porn beats that. I had the great pleasure of talking with “Hot Rod” for the podcast today. I can’t remember being this excited to talk to someone. Piper’s Pit, the Bag Pipes, Wrestlemania I!!! Awesome! Hope you enjoy!
And make sure to check him out live, this Friday at the Hollywood Improv!
