Steve-O describes his stand-up comedy in one word: shameless.
He doesn’t always draw on his own crazy life experiences for his bits, but when he does, you can be sure the outrageous stories are 100 percent true, the comedian and stuntman said Tuesday.
There’s a story involving a strange encounter with a transvestite. To find out what happened there, check out his show in Kokomo this weekend.
Steve-O will perform five shows at the Laugh House comedy club in downtown Kokomo tonight, Friday and Saturday.
Expect him to bare all.
“Nothing’s too personal for me to share in my comedy,” he said. “It’s rigorous honesty and unbelievable experiences. My comedy is very revealing and shocking. I have a real knack for saying things I probably should not.”
Steve-O rose to fame in 2000 as a stuntman on the MTV show “Jackass.” The show aired for two years. In that time, he launched his own “Don’t Try This at Home Tour,” performing on stage in venues all over the world.
He and the “Jackass” team filmed three hit movies for Paramount, the last one released in 2010.
Steve-O started dabbling in stand-up comedy eight years ago. It started off as a hobby. Then in the months leading up to the release of “Jackass 3D” in 2010, he immersed himself in it — becoming a headlining act.
He performed at Los Angeles’ Laugh Factory and New York City’s Comedy Cellar. Those gigs led to his current “Steve-O’s Entirely Too Much Information Tour.”
Most people still don’t even know he does stand-up, he said. They come to his shows because they loved him in “Jackass,” he said. But they don’t know what to expect from him as a stand-up comedian.
