Tiger King Cast: Where Are They Now?

Posted: 18 Jan 2021 08:01 AM PST

One year on from when Tiger King hit the Netflix screens, many things have happened in the world. The show kept us entertained as the Covid 19 pandemic hit the globe and was one of the most watched shows of 2020. Over 64 million views! For some reason, we fell in love with the eccentric antics of Joe Exotic and his obsession with Carole Baskin. There were more members of the Tiger King Cast than Carole & Joe though. Where are they now?

Joe Maldonado-Passage aka Joe Exotic

Perhaps the head of the Tiger King cast is Joe Maldonado-Passage. Known to the world as Joe Exotic, he is still in prison where we left him at the end of the series. The Tiger King is serving a 22-year sentence in Grady County Jail in Oklahoma. This is for plotting to kill Carole Baskin, and for acts of animal cruelty. He is appealing his incarceration. Nicholas Cage is to play him in a dramatization of the docuseries.

Carole Baskin

After Tiger King was released, Carole Baskin released a statement once again saying she has nothing to do with the disappearance of her husband, Don Lewis. Mrs Baskin also claimed the show was sensational. She became one of the most talked about people in 2020. You can even get a personalised video message from her via Cameo! She continues residing at the Big Cat Rescue facility in Florida with, Howard Baskin, her third husband, who said the filmmakers were the “biggest con-artists of them all.”

Jeff Lowe

Jeff Lowe is still married to his wife Lauren and they are apparently in pre-production on a new documentary series showing their side of things. The zoo he took from Joe Exotic has now been taken by Carole Baskin via the courts. Apparently, Lowe is happy with that as he didn't want the zoo anyway. He’s still to not got the legal comeuppance others implied he will eventually get.

Doc Antle

Doc Antle was less than happy with his inclusion in the series. It was reported that he wasn’t thrilled that the sensationalised entertainment revolved around the Joe/Carole relationship, not showing the real side of world class wildlife facilities. He still owns and operates The Institute for Greatly Endangered and Rare Species, (T.I.G.E.R.S.).

Dillion Passage

Dillion Passage came into the Tiger King cast late in the series and is still married to Joe Exotic. He is active online but doesn’t use his social media pages for anything related to Joe.

John Finlay

Joe Exotic’s ex-husband John Finlay, famous for his missing teeth, now has a great smile after getting his teeth done! He lives with his fiancĂ©e, Stormey and works as a welder.

There are lots more characters to meet and discover the stories of in the Netflix docuseries. If you haven’t yet watched Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem & Madness, you can stream it now on Netflix.

Impractical Jokers Tour & Season 9 Release Date

Posted: 18 Jan 2021 06:56 AM PST

We all need a bit of cheering up right now. One thing that I have missed over the last year has been new episodes of Impractical Jokers. The delayed season 9 is coming soon and the Impractical Jokers tour is even on the schedule! Let’s have a look at the release date of the new season, where the Jokers are heading on their tour and what they’ve been up to during lockdown.

Who Are The Impractical Jokers?

If you haven’t seen it, Impractical Jokers is a TV show where four lifelong friends compete to embarrass each other. They’re actually a comedy trope called The Tenderloins. They take on challenges, if they lose, they then get a punishment. It works so well because the guys, Q, Murr, Sal & Joe are actually friends. They know each other and can push each others buttons. They know what to do to get each other to fail and push one another out of their comfort zones. It’s a big hit in America where they film it but also over here in the UK. They’ve even done some special episodes in London and brought an Impractical Jokers tour over here too. Fans of the show have seen them grow up through the show and some of them are even married. We feel like they’re our friends, quirks and all!

Season 9

Just like many things, Impractical Jokers Season 9 was delayed because of the global Coronavirus pandemic. Previous seasons have started to air in February or March through to November or December. Then the next season arrives again in the springtime. There was no new series in 2020. So Season 9 will be a welcome return to our screens. The release date for Season 9 has been confirmed as February 4th 2021. It should hit UK screens shortly after that.

What Have They Been Up To In Lockdown?

The Staten Islanders haven’t just been sat on the sofa watching Netflix during lockdown though. They released a Movie in early 2020 which was a big hit. They then adapted their TV show to bring fans a more intimate and different look at their lives, with Impractical Jokers: Dinner Party. This was a special series filmed over Zoom from the comfort of their own homes. There would be a ‘host’ each week who would decide what they would eat and then they’d chat and have laughs over the evening. It was edited into a 30 minute episode. It was great to see the four of them connect in a situation the rest of us were also in. Giving plenty of laughs when they were needed.

Impractical Jokers Tour

Along with many theatre shows and musical tours, the Impractical Jokers tour was delayed due to the Covid 19 pandemic. It’s coming back though and there are dates now available to book via Ticketmaster. They’re bringing The Scoopski Potatoes Tour to different venues across the USA through April, May, June, July & August. We’ll have to wait a while for another UK tour, I imagine.

I for one am thrilled that the Impractical Jokers will soon be returning to TV screens. The older episodes have been great to watch on streaming services and there are also clips on YouTube to enjoy. However, it’ll be great to catch up with the guys and forget what’s going on in the world with a few new laughs.
