Comedian, author and stunt-superstar star, Steve-O will bring his “Bucket List Tour” to The Ice House on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1. General admission tickets are $30. A limited amount of $50 VIP tickets are available and feature preferred seating and a meet and greet with Steve-O.
Steve-O (a.k.a. Stephen Glover) was willing to do whatever it took to become famous, even if it meant stapling a part of his male anatomy to his leg.
After failing miserably at the University of Miami, he was a homeless couch-surfer for three years before he attended Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, to help further his goal of becoming a famous stuntman. After graduating Clown College, determined to make it in Hollywood, he began to pitch his home videos to producers.
Eventually, Steve-O’s videos made it into the hands of Jeff Tremaine, who was working with Johnny Knoxville to create a stunt-based reality show. The rest is history. MTV aired the first season of “Jackass” in 2000.
Since then, he has had success as a New York Times best-selling author with the release of his memoir, “Professional Idiot,” and he has established himself as a force in the world of stand-up comedy. He’s even landed a handful of acting roles in film and TV.
Now in his 40s, and wanting to out-do all of his previous work, Steve-O decided to address the “unfinished business” on his bucket list. He’s been filming the most elusive and outlandish stunts he ever dreamt up and is now screening the all-new, unreleased footage exclusively on his “Bucket List Tour.” This new live show is a multi-media comedy event which explores just how high the bar has gotten for Steve-O’s stunts.
Steve-O has been clean and sober since March of 2008 and, between the various legs of his Bucket List Tour, when he isn’t terrorizing his fiancée with his unending pursuit of the ultimate stunt, they live a surprisingly healthy lifestyle in the Los Angeles area.
The Bucket List Tour will be at The Ice House Comedy Club this Friday at 8 p.m., and Saturday at 8 and 10 p.m. This show contains “X-rated” adult oriented material and subject matter.
There is a two-drink minimum and patrons must be at least 21 to attend. The Ice House is located at 24 N. Mentor Ave. in Pasadena. For more info or to purchase tickets, call (626) 577-1894 or visit icehousecomedy.com.
