From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Steve-O (born Steven Gilchrist Glover on 13 June 1974 in London) was a member of the cast of MTV's Jackass, and is currently seen in the TV show Wildboyz.

Steve graduated from the final class of Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College before it closed in 1997. However, he was not one of the ten chosen to join the circus. He then went home to Albuquerque to film himself doing stunts for skateboard videos, later becoming involved in Jackass and Jackass: The Movie.

After Jackass Steve released a number of DVDs showcasing his stunts. The first, Don't Try This At Home: The Steve-O Video, was simply a ragtag collection of footage that couldn't be played on TV. His second DVD, Volume 2: The Tour, follows him on his journey across America performing his live stage show, Don't Try This at Home. Volume 3: Out On Bail, follows Steve and his crew across the globe on the Don't Try This At Home Tour.

In August 2002, Steve was arrested for performing his now infamous stunt, "The Butterfly", in which he staples his scrotum to his leg. Steve-O has also been arrested for various other crimes, mostly for drug possession.

Steve-O has the phrase "Yeah, dude! I rock! -Steve-O" and a larger-than-life portrait of himself with two thumbs up tattooed on his back. He also has a tattoo from a Thai holy man, like the one Angelina Jolie has, which Steve hopes will get him in bed with Jolie, as well as numerous other tattoos, some of which have to be blurred on TV.

In mid 2005, Steve-O launched his own shoe company called Sneaux Shoes. Television commercials promoting the shoe company include such acts as Steve-O jumping into garbage, getting his foot bitten by an alligator, and drinking rotten milk. His slogan is "They're darn good shoes."

On September 26, 2005, a heavily intoxicated Steve-O appeared on Too Late with Adam Carolla, trashing the set of the show. He had originally planned on getting drunk and then having a policeman do a breathalyzer test on him, but the plan fell through at the last second, after Steve-O had already drunk a large amount of alcohol. He went on the show and yelled obscenities, tackled Adam Corolla, and broke a glass table, cutting his leg badly. He was later taken from the show by security. This appearance gave Too Late with Adam Corolla its highest ratings to date, and he was invited back for a second appearance scheduled for October 17, 2005. His second appearence was no less chaotic, with Steve-O lighting a table on fire, breaking the same glass table again, and ending with him stapling his scrotum to his thigh.
