Former champ delivers a comedy TKO
7 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

At one time "Iron" Mike Tyson was the baddest man on earth, knocking out men in less time than it will take you to read my review. Then a funny thing happened. He went bananas. Jail time, biting off a guy's ears and ending up flat broke, it was a sad tale. But maybe the tale has a happy ending. Mike now seems to have his life in balance, and the once baddest man on earth isn't above having some fun at his own expense. Case in point; 'Mike Tyson Mysteries'.

In the style of the old SNL "Saturday TV Funhouse"--itself a spoof of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons from the 70s--'Mike Tyson Mysteries' is a raunchy little comedic snack. With each episode clocking in at just under twelve minutes, it breezes by and still manages to illicit more laughs than many shows twice its length.

It's not as clever as something like 'Venture Bros.' by half, but with a tight little ensemble lead by the venerable Tyson himself, it certainly packs sufficient comedic punch.
