The cast of Tiger King will be in Ireland next May

Fiona Frawley

Who’d have thought way back in lockdown 1 when our Tiger King obsession began, that we’d have a chance to see the cast in person on our own home soil?

It’s a real full circle moment.

If you’ve already binged season 2 of Tiger King in its totality and are on the hunt for more big cat content, you might be interested to know members of the cast will be visiting Ireland next year, as part of their UNCAGED: THE UNTOLD STORIES FROM THE CAST OF TIGER KING tour. 

Carol and Joe won’t be there for the understandable reasons of Joe being in prison and Carole being in the midst of a lawsuit against the show, but plenty of Tiger King’s most iconic cast members will be part of the tour, including:

Kelci “Saff” Saffery 

After 6 years in the US Army, Saff was able to fulfill his life-long passion for big cats by working for Joe Exotic’s GW Zoo for the next 8 years, an experience that landed him a role in all 7 episodes of Tiger King and resulted in the amputation of his left hand.

John Reinke

After Texas native John had both legs amputated below the knee due to complications resulting from a horrible zip line accident, he became the manager of GW Zoo and long time friend of Joe Exotic. John appeared in 7 episodes of Tiger King and it was apparent to everyone who watched that he was the glue that held the GW Zoo together.

Joshua Dial

With a passion for politics and a huge heart, Josh took on his dream job as Joe Exotic’s campaign manager. Even though his dream quickly became a traumatic nightmare, Josh’s tenacity to keep Joe Exotic on the path for the Governor’s office was more than admirable. Josh appeared in 4 episodes of Tiger King. 

Todd McComas

Todd is the show’s host and on-stage moderator. Todd is a retired police detective and former US Marine turned stand-up comedian. He’s best known from his time spent as a member of the Pat McAfee Show, Barstool Sports, Heartland Radio, and the Bob & Tom Show. He’s currently the host of 10-41 with Todd McComas, FUNTOWN, and 4 Life Podcast.

The show features a 60-70 minute moderated discussion that will include never before seen videos, photos, and no holds barred stories. Then the cast interacts directly with the audience by participating in a question and answer session for 20-30 minutes. Tickets are priced at €35 and are on sale now for tour dates in Dublin, Galway and Belfast.
