Stephen Gilchrist Glover (born June 13, 1974), better known by his stage name Steve-O, is an American stunt performer, comedian, clown, actor, producer, author, and television personality. His entertainment career is mostly centered on his performance stunts on the American TV series Jackass and related movies.
Steve-O is known for his eccentric character. He has a number of tattoos, which he refers to as "dumb tattoos", including arguably his most memorable, a self-portrait which covers half of his back and sports the words "Yeah Dude" and "I rock!".
Steve-O was born in London, England. His mother, Donna Gay (née Wauthier), was Canadian, and his father, Richard Glover, was American. His paternal grandfather was English and his maternal step-grandfather was voice-over announcer Wayne Howell. His family was based in England for many years due to his father's presidency of the South American division of Pepsi-Cola. Childhood residencies include Canada, Brazil, Venezuela, Uganda. He also lived in Darien, Connecticut, at the age of four, then Miami two years later. At age nine his family returned to London where Steve-O attended the American School in London in St. John's Wood for four years. Growing up, he was an avid Mötley Crüe fan. In 1987, Mötley Crüe was playing at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto where his family was living in at the time. He phoned every hotel within and outside the vicinity until he found the name that the band usually checked in under, manager Doc McGhee. He did not speak to Doc, but rather his brother Scott, but McGhee was so impressed with the resolve of Steve-O to meet Mötley Crüe that he brought him out for their show, let him meet them, and hang with them backstage, as told in Tommy Lee's autobiography...
