LISTEN: Ian Interviews Steve-O Before Duluth Show
Professional stunt performer Steve-O is coming to Duluth on his 'Bucket List Tour' and took time out of his busy day to talk to Ian.
Steve-O is known for many things: his crazy antics from the reality comedy series 'Jackass', to his very entertaining podcast 'Wild Ride', to writing a best selling book tilted 'Professional Idiot: A Memoir' and more!
I've been watching Steve-O since 'Jackass' first came out, back in 2000. I was just a 9 year old little ginger and was just fascinated with what these guys were doing on tv. I continued to watch Steve-O as his career went on to 'Wild Boyz' where Steve-O and fellow 'Jackass' star Chris Pontius travel all over the world to interact with wild animals.
I also watched 'Dr. Steve-O' when it premiered in 2007. On the show, Steve-O would help guys overcome their fears by putting them through an initiation treatment, a personal procedure and group therapy. He even has a new book coming out this September, titled 'A Hard Kick In The Nuts: What I've Learned From A Lifetime Of Terrible Decisions'.
"The Bucket List Tour' is a multimedia comedy show where Steve-O tells the stories of his bucket list of stunts he was never allowed to do with 'Jackass', and then shows the stunts. He even stated that these stunts are so gnarly, that grown men have literally fainted at the show.
He'll be at the DECC on June 16th, and you purchase tickets here. Just a heads up, it is an adult only show, meaning you have to be 18 and older. The show contains graphic footage of Sexually Explicit Content, Nudity, and Self-Inflicted Violence.
I'm still in disbelief I got to talk to someone I've been watching since I was nine. Check out my interview with Steve-O below:
