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. From there, he started making 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 worked with Johnny Knoxville to create a stunt based reality show. The rest is history. MTV aired the first season of JACKASS in 2000. In 2001, Steve-O 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. 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. 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.
