Jimmy Fallon Is Not a 'Tiger King' Fan, Despite That Funny Spoof

Jimmy Fallon may have done a funny spoof of Tiger King this week on his show, but that doesn’t mean that the talk show host is a fan of the docu-series.

The 45-year-old comedian opened up about the show in a new interview.

“I tried it. My wife got out quickly. She was like, ‘It’s not for me,’” Jimmy told People. “I watched because everyone else was watching. I thought I might have to spoof it. But it got a little depressing for me around like, the fourth episode.”

“I was like, ‘I’m already depressed now.’ I need something funny. I need something that’s going to make me laugh,” he added. “This is not really making me laugh.”

Jimmy says that he was not able to finish the series. He said, “I just didn’t see it. It wasn’t steering towards an awesome ending.”

Earlier this week, Jimmy played Nicolas Cage as Joe Exotic. If you didn’t know, the actor will be playing the tiger king in an upcoming scripted series.
