The first part of our interview with Steve-O (Jackass, A Hard Kick in the Nuts book, Steve-O’s Wild Ride podcast), who stops by to discuss his amazing journey to overcome countless odds against him, becoming one of the most well-known, talented stuntmen of all time. He details his family history of substance abuse, failing out of college, and the origins of his affinity for stunt work. He opens up about his own struggles with addiction and road toward sobriety. Steve-O shares his unbelievable experiences in clown college, including auditioning for the exclusive program and breaking down the different types of clowns.
Packed with self-deprecating wit and gruelingly earned wisdom, A Hard Kick in the Nuts will reverberate with readers everywhere who have lived a lot (sometimes too much) and are now wondering how to approach the years to come. Or maybe just need some good motivation to get out of bed tomorrow. One of many tips: Be your own harshest critic, then cut yourself a break, and enjoy this book.
