OMG, Biscardi Convinces BBC To Film Biscardi In Midwest & Florida

Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 6th, 2011

I was contacted by a reporter yesterday, asking for a quotation about Tom Biscardi. Apparently, Biscardi’s talked the BBC into filming some “Bigfoot expeditions” of his.

I really don’t like to give the guy attention and only post this here to give you all fair warning. I pointed the reporter to the history of Mr. Biscardi’s past fakery documented at Cryptomundo, and to my favorite quotation that I gave to the hometown newspaper of the police officer, one of the Atlanta-area hoaxers, who was in the triad with Tom Biscardi regarding the 2008 events of the Georgia Bigfoot fakery:

“Biscardi is a Las Vegas promoter and a showman, and he’s doing it again,” [cryptozoologist Loren] Coleman said. “That’s what he’s really good at. It’s like, ‘Would you like to come into my tent? I’ll show you this one picture. Isn’t that interesting? Pay me to see more.’

“He’s already gone through several hoaxes,” Coleman said. “We always say, ‘This is the end of Biscardi. He’s never coming back.’ I mean, the man has nine lives.”

Here is an update on what is known about what Biscardi is up to for the fall of 2011:

A Bigfoot researcher based in Redwood City will be leading an expedition this month to search for signs of the elusive biped in the company of a team of British filmmakers.
Tom Biscardi of Searching for Bigfoot, Inc. will be looking into several reported Bigfoot sightings and an alleged Bigfoot shooting in areas including Fayetteville, Ark., Mammoth Spring, Ark., Mokena, Ill., Fredericksburg, Va., and some locations in the Florida panhandle.
Biscardi will also be appearing at the Pocono Mountains Film Festival in Stroudsburg, Penn. on Oct. 22, where his recent film, “Anatomy of a Bigfoot Hoax,” is entered in the category for “Best Documentary.”

Tom Biscardi’s journey with Ivan Marx and others began long ago.

    This just made my day! lol…

  2. Cullan Hudson via Facebook responds:

    Well… The BBC isn’t known for either salacity or sensationalism, so if Biscardi thinks he’s going to play Barnum here, he might find the tables turned on him.

  3. David M. Prus via Facebook responds:

    Oh NO.

  4. Brandy Robinson via Facebook responds:

    Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Methinks a blowgun and sleepy darts are needed in this situation. 🙂

    @Brandy R: I say we go straight to low-yield tactical nukes….


  6. Aaron Buda via Facebook responds:

    this is sad. even though i like bigfoot related shows that may be truthful, i’m thinking bigfoot ‘hunting’ or ‘finding’ shows should be no more, because i think the squatch should be respected and left alone. and its a lot harder to find evidence of a squatch than something else like a ghost, because ghosts aren’t on the move in millions of acres of woods.

  7. Sasquatch/Bigfoot- Searching for the Facts via Facebook responds:

    To the mainstream public that is not Bigfoot enthusiasts or follows the Bigfoot phenom, this is a bad thing, Biscardi’s last production followed the rules and the theories on all accounts for each location he went to in that documentary, Same with Moneymaker and his Finding Bigfoot series last season. It appeals to the mainstream audience, but many of us who follow Bigfoot know better. Bigfoot sells! and as long as BF sells there will be people and groups who look for every opportunity to make a buck even if it is stretching the truth or blantantly creating items that throws the attention your way. Biscardi is a known hoaxer, I will hold him accountable for his actions……..but there are many who have no idea who he is.

  8. Sefton Disney via Facebook responds:

    Oh, bugger.

  9. sausage1 responds:

    I say, what-ho, those chappies at the Beeb have done their homework with regard to this one and turned up an absolute corker of a good-egg who knows where one can meet one of these sasquatch fellows and is willing to arrange an introduction for a not insubstantial portion of the BBC License fee – Bacardi or Biscuit or somesuch, very well thought of in his field, they say, what?


  10. DWA responds:

    Wow. There it is, a commentary on the news media. Thanks, Tom. You are good for something.

  11. DTK responds:

    Man, as if we need another Biscardi fiasco to throw bigfootery into disarray! Thanks for the heads up Loren…

  12. etheral responds:

    It sickens me that this buffoon is making a living from spreading lies and misinformation. What a scumbag.

  13. Robert Robinson via Facebook responds:

    Normally I would be worried, but it’s not like he’s going to find anything. The man gets lost in the bathroom.

  14. Ron Nasty responds:

    Why isn’t this guy in the Sentate?

  15. Strick responds:

    Where is the evidence that the ‘British Film makers’ are BBC and not some other UK based production company?

    I know that Loren is not one of those Americans who mistakenly believes the BBC to be the totality of British media. I know this for a fact since I caught him on the Paul O’Grady Show a couple of years back! It was, I believe, an ITV production

  16. Loren Coleman responds:

    The information as to the company being the BBC came directly from the reporter who wished to grab a quote from me for his article, of course.

    I was not inclined to engage in furthering the media attention for Mr. Biscardi, however, but did consider the news worthy of passing on to you Cryptomundians.

  17. aenea responds:

    Oh no. What were the guys at BBC thinking?!

  18. Kopite responds:

    As a BBC Licence fee payer and hence a contributor to BBC funding I’m disappointed with this news. Tom Biscardi? On the BBC? Surely they could have found somebody, anybody else but him?

    Unless they are doing a “lets laugh at Bigfootry” type programme? Oh dear.

  19. Hambone responds:

    Looks like Tom Biscardi wants another 15 minutes of fame again. Or is he just trying to cash in on the fame of Finding Bigfoot success?
