Stephen Steve-O Glover has made a career of doing crazy, dangerous, unhealthy, ill-advised stunts for the amusement, delight and occasional disgust of audiences around the world. Besides being one of the breakout stars of Jackass' three-season run on MTV, Steve-O starred alongside fellow Jackass alum Chris Pontius in the extreme travel show Wildboyz, which ran on MTV for four seasons and his own Dr. Steve-O series on the USA Network. In 2009, the newly sober Steve-O lasted six weeks on the ABC reality series, Dancing With the Stars, despite the fact that he couldn't dance to save his life. He figured prominently in the first two Jackass feature films, both of which debuted at #1 at the box office, and will be a main player again in the third installment, Jackass 3D, which hits theatres in October 2010. He's also been a frequent guest on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the Howard Stern Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Loveline. Professional Idiot is his first book.
