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 and began producing homemade skateboarding videos featuring dangerous stunts mixed with comical behavior. 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 the first season of “Jackass” in 2000.
The success and popularity of the Jackass franchise launched Steve-O into fame. His tour, the “Steve-O: Don’t Try This At Home Tour”, established him as an accomplished stage performer. When the “Jackass” series ended in 2002, the team moved on to “Jackass: The Movie”, released by Paramount, which would be followed by “Jackass: Number 2” and “Jackass: 3D”. Steve-O and fellow “Jackass” alum, Chris Pontius, were given a spin-off show entitled “Wildboyz”, which aired on MTV and MTV2 for four seasons. In 2009 he competed on ABC’s hit show, “Dancing with the Stars”.
Thus far, his career as a performer has brought him to a total of 38 countries.
