Mick had this to say about the tour:
"I am enormously excited and relieved about my upcoming comedy tour. Excited about the prospect of telling stories, hearing laughter and fielding questions from some of my most loyal and dedicated fans. Relieved that I finally have a real answer to the one of the two questions I'm most frequently asked: when are you coming back to the UK? As far as that other question, about returning to WWE, I guess we'll have to wait and see."
