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 who was working with Johnny Knoxville to create a stunt based reality show. The rest is history. 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 United States and in a dozen other countries.
