Jackass The Best Of Johnny Knoxville

With the release Bad Grandpa this week, I thought it would be a great opportunity to take a look back at some of the most outrageous moments from the career of Jackass’s head honcho Mr Johnny Knoxville.

Johnny Knoxville (Real name Phillip John Clapp) was born in Knoxville, Tennessee where he was raised by his parents Lemoyne and Philip Clapp.

After graduating from High School in 1989 knoxville packed up and moved to California in pursuit of making it as an actor. Despite several appearances in adverts and as an extra the opportunity that he so desired had so far eluded him. This flared an idea he had for writing his own ideas and pitching them to various top magazines. One of his first ideas caught the attention of Jeff Tremaine’s extreme skateboarding magazine entitled Big Brother. Knoxville had pitched the idea of testing self defence equipment….on himself. In addition to a write up, these tests were also filmed…and the rest as they say is history.

Jackass was first aired in 2000 through MTV and within weeks it became a global phenomenon, not only making Johnny Knoxville a star but also a lucrative brand. He has since moved on to successful acting career having starred in Coyote Ugly, Men in Black 2 and of course the soon to be released Bad Grandpa
