Steve-O (a.k.a. Stephen Glover) has become a household name and it all started when he snatched a video camera from his father’s closet when he was fifteen years old.
Eventually, Steve-O’s videos made it into the hands of Jeff Tremaine (Jackass Creator, Director & Producer) who was working with Johnny Knoxville to create a stunt based reality show. The rest is history. MTV aired Jackass for three seasons. Steve-O also launched his own “Steve-O Don’t Try This At Home Tour”, establishing himself as an accomplished stage performer, at venues throughout the U.S. and in a dozen countries.
When the Jackass TV series ended, the team moved on to movies releasing Jackass: The Movie, and later Jackass: Number 2 as well as Jackass: 3D, all with Paramount films. Steve-O and fellow Jackass alum, Chris Pontius, were given a spin-off show entitled Wildboyz, which aired on MTV and MTV2 and lasted four seasons. Steve-O continued to thrill audiences with his outrageous stunts. He competed on ABC’s hit show, Dancing With The Stars, and lasted six weeks, despite an injury and having virtually no dancing ability whatsoever.
Steve-O has become a New York Times Bestselling Author with the release of his memoir, Professional Idiot, and has established himself as a force in the world of stand-up comedy. Thus far (and still counting), his career as a performer has brought him to a total of 38 countries, and his first hour-long comedy special, Guilty As Charged, recently premiered on Showtime and performed in the top one percent of all Showtime comedy specials.
