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 producing homemade skateboarding videos featuring dangerous stunts mixed with comical behavior.
He was born in London and by the age of twelve, had lived in five countries and communicated fluently in three different languages. He holds citizenship in three countries the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
After finishing high school in London, and completing a year at the University of Miami, Steve O realized that college wasn’t for him. He enrolled in Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Clown College to help further his goal of becoming a professional stuntman. After graduating Clown College, and determined to make it in Hollywood, he began to pitch his home videos to producers.
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. 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.
When the _Jackass _TV series ended in 2002, the team moved on to Jackass: The Movie, released by Paramount in October of that year. Shortly thereafter, 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. In 2006, Paramount released _Jackass: Number 2 _in theatres and Steve O continued to thrill audiences with his outrageous stunts.
In 2009 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.
Next up, Steve O appeared in Paramount’s release of _Jackass: 3D. _Thus far (and still counting), his career as a performer has brought him to a total of 38 countries.
Most importantly, however, Steve O has been clean and sober since March of 2008 and lives a healthy, vegan lifestyle in the Los Angeles area.
