From a press release:

Comedian & stunt-man Steve-O performs at The Millroom, Oct. 26

Stand-up comedian and renowned stunt-man, Steve-O, will perform live at The Millroom at Asheville Brewing Company on Sunday, October 26, 2014. Advance tickets are available for purchase at ashevillemillroom.com for $15. If available, tickets will be sold at the door for $17.50. The show, presented by Funny Business, begins at 7pm; doors will open at 5:30pm.

Steve-O (a.k.a Stephen Glover) has become a household name and it all started when he snatched a video camera from his father’s closet when he was fifteen years old and began producing homemade skateboarding videos featuring dangerous stunts mixed with comical behavior. Eventually, Steve-O’s videos made it into the hands of Jeff Tremaine (Jackass Creator/Director/Producer) 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. The success and popularity of the Jackass franchise launched Steve-O into fame. His tour, the “Steve-O: Don’t Try This At Home Tour”, established him as an accomplished stage performer. When the “Jackass” series ended in 2002, the team moved on to “Jackass: The Movie”, released by Paramount, which would be followed by “Jackass: Number 2” and “Jackass: 3D”. Steve-O and fellow “Jackass” alum, Chris Pontius, were given a spin-off show entitled “Wildboyz”, which aired on MTV and MTV2 for four seasons. In 2009 he competed on ABC’s hit show, “Dancing with the Stars”. Thus far, his career as a performer has brought him to a total of 38 countries.

Buying tickets in advance is highly recommended. Free parking is available across the street from The Millroom in the Asheland Center parking lot after 5:30pm. The Millroom, downtown Asheville’s newest event space, is located at 66 Asheland Avenue, and offers a full bar and dining menu for comedy events, courtesy of Asheville Brewing Company.
