One of the stars of JACKASS, Steve-O, actually started at Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey
Clown College, to learn the art of becoming a stuntman.
After graduating, Steve-O finally got one of his home-made videos picked up by Jeff Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville, who both collaborated to create the stunt-based reality show, JACKASS. The rest is history. MTV aired the first season in 2000, and then in 2001 Steve-O launched his own Steve-O: Don’t Try This At Home Tour, establishing himself as an accomplished stage performer.
When the JACKASS TV series ended in 2002, the team moved on to JACKASS: THE MOVIE. Shortly thereafter, Steve-O and fellow JACKASS alum, Chris Pontius, were given a spin-off show entitled WILDBOYZ which aired for four seasons. In 2009 he competed on ABC’s hit show, Dancing With The Stars. Since also starring in JACKASS: NUMBER TWO, and JACKASS: 3D, Steve-O has also released a best-selling memoir, Professional Idiot.
Steve-O isn't stopping anytime soon and continues to perform around the world, including in Denver this summer. You can catch his new special, Guilty As Charged, which premiered on Showtime.
