Steve-O Part 2: I’ve Beaten Bigger Odds Than This

Part 2 of our interview with Steve-O! (Jackass, A Hard Kick in the Nuts book, Steve-O’s Wild Ride podcast) Steve-O discusses life after clown college, including his job performing as a clown on a cruise ship, finding his bottom, and the intervention that friend and fellow Jackass castmate Johnny Knoxville organized for him. He reveals why he finally decided to take his stay in a mental health facility and sober living home seriously, his advice for those who want to do what he does, and the value enthusiasm has over talent or intellect. Steve-O opens up about feeling funnier now that he lives a sober life than he ever was while he was under the influence, and explains why his value is made up of more than his skills as a performer.

Theme Song Written, Produced, and Performed by Ed Robertson. Mixed by Kenny Luong.
