Much of the comedian's material comes from personal experience and battle stories from his days in front of the camera -- like snorting hot wasabi up his nose, or swallowing a condom full of marijuana before boarding a commercial airplane.
The year-old Jackass star had suffered major burns after pouring rocket fuel on his body for a stunt in his new comedy special on Wednesday. Initially, he seemed to recover on his own accord, but after visiting doctors for numbing cream, it was deduced that he needed surgery. Steve-O posted a snap of himself with both arms in casts as he wrote: 'The pain only increased for the five days since I got burned, so I went to the hospital asking for a numbing burn cream.
Here was a group of 10 dudes—quasi-stuntmen, really—who seemed willing to do anything for a gag. Swallow a live goldfish only to regurgitate it right back up? Get gored by a bull? Why not?

Low-budget, shot on home video and filled with skunks, bodily functions and traumatic head injuries, Jackass was a tribute to American fratboy stupidity, but with a sincerity that often made it oddly lovable. But it also revived an appreciation for Jackass and its surreal, one-of-a-kind brilliance.
Steve-O is just about the last person one imagines caring about what goes into his body. The Jackass star has stapled his balls to his leg countless times, swallowed a condom full of weed and done more drugs than a bus full of Grateful Dead fans in He even narrated a video for Farm Sanctuary, a group that saves farm animals from the slaughterhouse.
The stuntman, whose real name is Stephen Glover, was arrested Thursday, and though he has yet to be formally charged, he has been prevented from talking to an attorney, his lawyer Jason Berk said. Glover, however, has made contact with the U. The possible charges stem from Glover's boasts that he had swallowed a condom filled with marijuana, a stunt he claimed he had tried while en route from Oslo, Norway, to Stockholm, Sweden, while on his Don't Try This at Home Tour in Europe.
Having wrapped up filming for the "Matrix" movies, Keanu Reeves has his eye on finishing another trilogy. I think they'd be in a Vegas hotel bar, strumming two guitars. And they'd be drunk and fat. Meanwhile, friends tell People the single Reeves is entertained by media speculation about his love life.
Steve-O was arrested for climbing a foot crane at a Hollywood construction site on Sunday evening. LAPD and firefighters were initially unsure whether a man needed to be rescued from the crane but, it was later revealed that it was a publicity stunt and part of his anti-SeaWorld protests. Steve-O was live streaming the incident on Facebook and had earlier trailed his stunt on Instagram, saying that he was about to do something that would get him in trouble.
Updated: September 19, pm. AP -- One of the stars of MTV's "Jackass," a show that celebrated stupid behavior, is in trouble with the law for a public stunt. Stephen Glover -- known as Steve-O on the defunct series -- was arrested after police said he urinated in front of dozens of autograph-seekers at a booth at Lollapalooza rock festival in western Pennsylvania. Chris Holly, Glover's publicist, said he was unaware of the incident Saturday at the Post-Gazette Pavilion, about 20 miles west of Pittsburgh, and declined to comment.
