Prepare to Pass Out on Steve-O’s Triple X Comedy Show Wednesday Night


It’s Tuesday I give. Consider donating to The Daily Orange to make sure we can keep producing stories like these.

One of the last times Steve “Steve-O” Glover was in Syracuse, the crowd at the Syracuse Crunch game booed him, but this time in town, he expects the audience to laugh – and s ‘maybe faint – at the triple X show. MTV’s “Jackass” co-star is on tour for her stand-up show “The Bucket List Tour”, and he’ll be performing at the Westcott Theater Wednesday evening at 8 p.m.

The Daily Orange interviewed Glover about his upcoming show in Syracuse, preparing for a stand-up and some advice he has for college students today. This interview has been edited for clarity and brevity.

The Daily Orange:

Have you been to Syracuse before?

Steve “Steve-O” Glover:

Oh, yeah, great time. I was there for a hockey game in 2014, and it was Syracuse Crunch (the hockey affiliate of Tampa Bay Lighting). They asked me to do a stunt where I would be like a human slingshot, and they were throwing me through the ice in cans. And when I went to the rehearsal, I was like, “It’s not gnarly enough.”

So what I needed was for everyone to shoot me pucks while I got shot on the ice, and it ended up being a big, huge failure and like everyone was hootin ‘and m sort of disappointed.

But yeah, I mean, it was just a random experience. It stands out because it was remarkable. But I’ve been to Syracuse many times, like I’ve had great experiences at the Syracuse Funny Bone Comedy Club in Destiny USA.

The fact:

When you get up, are you going to be here just for the show? Can you visit friends or places here?

SG:

Yeah, it’s not going to be a lot of time. I will be in a different city every day. I will be traveling on a tour bus. And whatever time I usually have is spent working on this or that, I have my production team on the tour bus. So we turn or go up or something in the corner. We skate pretty gnarly, busy 24 hours a day.

The fact:

What will the show look like?

SG:

It’s a multimedia show called “The Bucket List Tour”, so the to-do list is made up of the best stunts I’ve ever been particularly serious about doing because they’re so over the top. It was a pretty big idea to try, and I did.

I filmed all of the stunts and then made this show from all of these ideas. After each part of the show, I cast a stunt for you to see everything I described. These stunts are rated triple X and very sexually explicit. A lot of the things I did were clearly illegal. As if I had asked a healthcare professional to put an IV in my arm and give me general anesthesia medication while I was cycling. The sexually explicit scene is where I was bare butt with this guy strapped to my back on a plane (masturbating) as I fell off the plane.

The fact:

Oh nice.

SG:

Yeah, that was a challenge. This is basically everything I could never have done for “Jackass”, and so I did it on my own – uninsured and put on this crazy show.

The fact:

I read that the public signed a waiver before coming to the show. Is it true?

SG:

You sign a waiver when you buy your tickets for the show; there is legal language in there. And then on top of that, we then post that there are legal disclaimers posted around the venue. And while I’m on stage, I say it very clearly: you are all here at your own risk. And, in just about every city we go to, at least one adult male falls unconscious in the audience. Like, guys just pass out.

The fact:

What were the crowds like, other than fainting?

SG:

Intense and explosive. It gives me a lot of anxiety as to how I’m going to follow this show. Because, you know, it’s so intense, but my wheels have been spinning great for a while. As if I were starting to understand, I am convinced that I have another in me.

The fact:

What was the thing that gave you the most confidence throughout your stand up career?

SG:

At first the first time I got up it was about as scary as anything can be. But again, it makes sense, because when I was a kid in elementary school I was so terrified of getting up in front of the class to give a presentation. And it’s a little scarier if you’re trying to make people laugh.

But, when you stick with that and start developing an act, you find a comfort zone. And if you’re trying something new, it’s less scary when you know you can just jump right into something that has been proven to work.

The fact:

When you were a student at the University of Miami, did you do any memorable stunts?

SG:

My first day of college at the University of Miami in first year that night was Hurricane Andrew. While everyone was evacuated into the halls of their dorms, I swam across the lake on campus. There were a lot of things. I was still preparing something there.

The fact:

So, any advice for students who want to play pranks?

SG:

I just have some great tips for being successful in college because I learned from my own mistakes. The secret to getting a college degree is that it is about attendance. If you religiously attend every class, you always know when to do the minimum amount of work. But, see, I skipped this one and that one, and it turned into a slippery slope. Then by not attending class I had no idea when to do the minimum amount of work and of course I failed. Remember, it’s so easy to skip a class and think you’re just going to skip that one, but you have to go to every class and then college really isn’t that hard.

The fact:

Have you ever thought about going back for a degree?

SG:

I’m not too concerned about going back to college. Although my dad always encouraged me to take an accounting course, which I think I could eventually benefit from in my own way. I’m growing and learning, and I’ve definitely come to wear more hats as I’ve grown in my career.
