Jeff Johnson of Fairfax, who propelled the Impractical Jokers and Michael Carbonaro onto the touring scene, is launching his latest project, “Uncaged: The Untold Stories from the Cast of Tiger King,” at 7 p.m. Nov. 13 at the Paramount Theatre in Cedar Rapids.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday at creventslive.com or at the Paramount Theatre ticket office, (319) 366-8203.

Cast members John Reinke, Saff Saffery, Joshua Dial and Barbara Fisher will share stories about Tiger King Joe Exotic, Carole Baskin, Doc Antle and all the others whose drama played out through one of this year’s most bizarre, addictive TV series.

Moderated by comedian and podcast veteran Todd McComas, the live show features a 70-minute discussion with the cast members, featuring never-before-seen videos, photos and no-holds-barred stories, followed by a 20-minute live audience Q&A.

Johnson is the show’s producer.

“I created it, helped write it and got the cast members,” he said via email. “I also put the team around it — tour manager, merchandise, website, logos, etc. Trust me, I didn’t do the creative on a lot of that, but I found good people.”
