‘Jackass’ star Steve-O brings ‘Bucket List’ comedy show to F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre on Dec. 2
From a press release:
Today, Outback Presents announced that “Jackass” star, stand-up comedian, stunt performer, and New York Times bestselling author Steve-O will take the stage of the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre on Friday, Dec. 2 as part of his Bucket List Tour.
Every idea on Steve-O’s bucket list was so ill-advised, he never expected to go through with any of them… until it was time to prepare for this tour. Not only are the stunts more ridiculous than what you already know Steve-O for, he did them all and made a highly XXX-rated multimedia comedy show out of them. It’s not for kids or the faint of heart – this show contains graphic footage of sexually explicit content, nudity, self-inflicted violence, and drug use.
Last year, the tour stopped at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg and is set to return to Northeastern Pennsylvania on this run.
Doors at the Kirby Center (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre) open at 5:30 p.m., and the 18+ show starts at 7 p.m.
Tickets, which are $35, $45, $55, and $125 (VIP), plus applicable fees, are on sale now and available at the F.M. Kirby Center box office, online at kirbycenter.org and ticketmaster.com, and by phone at 570-826-1100.
Steve-O (a.k.a. Stephen Glover) was willing to do whatever it took to become famous, even if it meant stapling his ball sack to his leg.
After failing miserably at the University of Miami, Steve-O 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.
His relentless attention-whoring ultimately led to working with Johnny Knoxville on a stunt-based reality show. The rest is history. MTV aired the first season of “Jackass” in 2000.
Since then, Steve-O has had continued success as a New York Times bestselling author with the release of his memoir, “Professional Idiot,” and he has established himself as a force in the world of stand-up comedy. In 2020, he released a new multimedia and wildly explicit comedy special direct to his fans at steveo.com – it’s called “Gnarly” for good reason.
Across his social media platforms, Steve-O has amassed well over 24 million followers and counting, providing an intimate window into his continued antics and colorful life with his fiancee Lux. He also has a weekly podcast called “Steve-O’s Wild Ride” with amazing guests, including Demi Lovato, Shaquille O’Neal, Ronda Rousey, David Dobrik, Tony Hawk, and more.
Steve-O has never stopped being wild and crazy, but he has definitely evolved. He has been clean and sober for over 12 years now and developed a genuine love for animals (including the four dogs, two cats, and three goats he and Lux have rescued). Steve-O and Lux even have plans to start their own animal sanctuary.
