I am Steve-O, jackass, entertainer, I’m taping a very crazy comedy special for Showtime in Austin, Texas at the Paramount Theater on November 21, and going to jail on December 9, AMA…
I’m pretty sure I don’t need to explain who I am. Get tix to the taping of my comedy special in Austin here: http://bit.ly/1Zebxu5 PROOF: https://instagram.com/p/9XLXMQwq6f/
Why are your teeth so perfect?
Because they are fake as hell.
What person has unexpectedly had a huge impact on your life and why?
The lead detective on the case when I got arrested for my crane stunt. We were up all night and that dude is a fuckin G. I honestly respect the hell out of him.
Are you still sober? Last time I Googled you, I was reading you had a relapse. Is that true?
No relapses since I got sober in March of 2008.
How do you expect to be treated as a celebrity in jail?
I’ll be in “protective custody”, which means I will always be alone in a cell. I was in there for five days back in 2002, and I got treated very well– the officers brought me into their office to take photos of my back tattoo (which nobody had ever seen yet), and gave me boxes of cookies and stuff. I think they’ll probably be pretty cool to me again.
Can we send you care packages?
I don’t think so. I can receive books, but only if they come directly from the publisher. There’s a cool cop who works in the jail who DMed on Instagram and has been answering my questions about it.
If you can give any sort of life advice what would it be?
Jack off with one hand, tickle your balls with the other.
Are you still able to reproduce after all of the hits to the nuts you have taken like a champion? And what was your favorite hit to the nuts you have taken?
I doubt if nut shots actually lower your sperm count (“if it doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger” comes to mind), but I do think they increase your chances of getting testicular cancer, which makes me an idiot.
Is Jackass 4 happening? And when?
If Bam can stay sober and healthy, I suppose it’s possible, but I think it’s unlikely. I’m working really hard to make my own movie happen, wish me luck!
Will you bring Chris Pontius in more of your YouTube videos? I benge watch Wildboyz all the time. You guys are an awesome duo.
I just got a voicemail from Chris’ management, they are trying to get us to do a new tv show together. That would be cool, I’ll call back on my way to go shoot for the opening sequence of my comedy special, which I need to leave for in about five minutes.
As a vegan how will do you cope with the food in jail?
I guess I’ll just eat fruit and bread.
Met you back about 2 years ago on tour. You are so fucking awesome for taking pictures with every single fan. Do you ever get tired of it?
Thanks! Sure I get tired of it, but I’m not planning on stopping.
Do you think you are prepared for the jail time? And do you feel it was a fair amount of time for what you did?
I asked my lawyer to get me jail time because I’m an attention whore and I knew that would get more news coverage for me and my cause, and because the whole point of what I did was to make a statement about captivity.
What made you do some of the things you did like the beer enema? Was it peer pressure or just for shits and giggles!?
Butt chugs are all about shits and giggles.
Hey Steve-O, big fan! I loved your book, any chance you’ve got another up your sleeve? By the way, sober Steve-O is my favorite Steve-O.
I truly appreciate that, thank you. Lately I’ve thought about putting out a new edition of the same book with a bunch of new chapters. Maybe I’ll reach out to the book agent.
In terms of your stand-up career, who are your comedy influences?
Dane Cook went out of his way to help me a lot, and I’m forever grateful to him for that. There are lots of comedians I like (Joe Rogan, Jim Jeffries, Bill Burr and ESPECIALLY Jay Oakerson and Ian Edwards, to name a few) but I have my own approach. My Showtime special will be something of a “one man show”, with stunts, tricks, stories, and comedy all mixed together. And it’s called “Steve-O: Guilty As Charged”.
Do you still hang out with the Jackass Crew?
What is the most epic pool or body of water you have jumped into?
At first I thought that said “What is the most epic pool of blood you have jumped into”, and it reminded me of the time right after graduating from high school that my buddy and I chugged huge glasses of whiskey and he fell through a glass door. The only reason he’s alive today is because a neighbor heard the glass break and called the cops, and when they showed up, they found us both unconscious in a massive pool of his blood. He needed surgery and would have absolutely died if nobody came right away.
STEVE-O what’s up dude? I follow you on snapchat and I have got to know man: how do you manage to take such accurate shits from over the toilet like that?
I actually surprised myself with that skill. Thanks!
Hell’s yeah dude, hey SteveO! If you could go back and give the 15 year old version of you some advice, what would it be?
Floss your teeth every day, always, because if you don’t your mouth is going to smell like something crawled in it and died, you won’t know that, nobody will tell you, and everyone will hate being near you.
Almost ten years ago Weeman said, “Dude, Steve-O, your breath is terrible.” Then Knoxville said, “Saying Steve-O has bad breath is like saying Weeman is short.” Thank God I floss my teeth all the time now, really, thank God.
Yeah dude! I remember you saying years ago that you dont get a tattoo unless it will make you laugh. Do you have any tattoos that you truely regret getting?
There’s one that I got covered up. Actually, there’s two.
Hey Steve-O big fan, just wondering how did you lose your virginity?
Were there any pranks or stunts on Jackass that you feel guilty about now, or do generally have a “fuck it, it was all for the sake of tv” view of it all?
Nothing we ever did on jackass was mean-spirited, unless you count the stuff we did to each other, and I don’t think anyone feels guilty about any of that.
Did you ever get to have a conversation with Eminem at the Grammys after presenting the award to him?
It was the VMA’s, not the Grammy’s, and I believe he said one word to me after we walked off the stage, which was “likewise”, in response to me saying it was cool to meet him.
I heard that while at the University of Miami you threw a kegger on top of Hecht, the freshman dorm. Any truth to this?
I didn’t have a keg up there, but yeah. I was already on “final disciplinary probation”, but they kicked me out for good after they busted me on that roof.
Do you think you’ll ever stop doing wild things? Maybe calm it down a little?
All of the plans I have at the moment involve being pretty wild.
Are there any plans to be a guest on Game Grumps? I know you like them and that they like you.
Yup. If Nov 27 works for them, that’s the day I’m available to shoot. If that day doesn’t work for them, we have a problem, because I have no other free days for a long time.
Whats the worst injury that you have received from a stunt?
In one fall I broke my cheekbone, seven teeth, got ten stitches in my chin, a concussion, and a broken wrist.
What’s your favorite television series?
At the moment, I’m most stoked to see the second season of The Knick.
Do you still rap?
Do you prefer cocoa pebbles, or fruity pebbles?
Cocoa pebbles, by a mile. They’re vegan, but they also have some shit in there that causes cancer. If you get the generic kind that comes in a bag at Whole Foods, that ingredient isn’t in it, but it’s still all sugar, so I try to steer clear of it.
Steve, have you struggled with depression? Any advice for a person who has?
Sure. Speak up about it.
I was wondering what got you into animal rights / veganism and what are some of your favorite foods?
It started back when I was on drugs. I was hearing voices telling me crazy stuff, and they made me believe it was important to be cool to animals. Once I got sober, the more I did to be cool to animals, the better I felt.
I recently saw one of your somewhat recent Howard Stern Interviews here. I was curious what your actual trick was going to be with your skateboard? I was very disapointed that Howard didn’t let it happen!
I smashed the glass bottle and was putting a piece of broken glass inside the headband on my forehead. My next move was going to be to whack myself in the forehead with the skateboard. It’s probably better that they stopped that one from happening. Even for me, that one was a little much.
Is there any crazy shit from jackass that you look back on and think “why the fuck would I ever do that?”
The whole point in doing most stuff on jackass is so that everyone could think, “why the fuck would anyone do that?”
Are you where you want to be in your life and career right now? Is there anything you really feel like you have to accomplish or complete before you are possibly out of the lime light?
This comedy special is a really big deal for me. After that, it is my mission to get my own movie to happen. Ask me the same question in one year.
Would you rather have dick length nipples or a nipple length dick?
I’ve kind of already got one of those.
Steve-O! I’m your second biggest fan brotada!!! Always honest that’s why I love you, keep on keepin on brother. Favorite country outside of the US to visit and have a killer time?
There it is!!! THANK YOU!!! I’ve always enjoyed Canada, Australia, England, and New Zealand. But all I ever do is travel, so the place I want to go the most is home.
What’s the most painful stunt you’ve ever done?
This is just about the most annoying question anyone can ask me, because it’s all “apples and oranges”. Generally, pain that lasts the longest sucks the most, but pain that is the sharpest hurts more… There’s been so much different shit… You see what I mean? Fuck this question, I hate it so much… this question is the most painful stunt I’ve ever done.
I’m sure this is kind of a lame question but what advice do you have for somebody that is trying to make their dreams come true?
Not a lame question at all. What ever it is you want to accomplish, start trying and don’t give up.
