GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) He’s become known around the world as the comedian who loves to take big risks to get big laughs. Steve-O has been on the comedy circuit since he first appeared in on MTV in 2000… and alongside Johnny Knoxville on the big screen. Now he’s making the rounds in West Michigan, performing at Dr. Grins Comedy Club at the B.O.B. August 21 through 23.
Steve-O (a.k.a. Stephen Glover) started his journey to stardom when he snatched a video camera from his father’s closet when he was 15 years old. From there, he started 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. MTV aired the first season of “Jackass” in 2000.
Steve-O immersed himself in standup comedy, which was a part-time hobby during the previous years. Successful performances at prestigious comedy venues such as LA’s Laugh Factory and New York City’s Comedy Cellar led to his current tour performing standup, stunts and bar tricks across North America, Australia and Europe.
