Today on the blog, Rick Kosick talks to one of our personal favorites: Roger Alan Wade, a man who needs no real introduction if you're a lifer in the lore of jackass. If you don't know Rog, well hell, then you're in for a real treat of a kick in... Continue reading

You remember Knate, right? The skinny little blond-haired kid who kept getting in Rick Kosick's shots while Johnny Knoxville hobbled around in his "Squid Suit" for the first season of jackass on MTV in 2000? Well, that kid Kosick grumpily decried as an "amateur" went on to make it big... Continue reading

When you are born into this world you are a blank slate, give or take some bullshit with genetics, and although I can't claim to know what happened to Happy Tom in the nurture state of his youth it must've been something pretty awesome. Not only is he one of... Continue reading

This past summer, Bam Margera came down to Tremaine’s lake house and spent a few days lake lifing. During that time, Kosick asked him if he’d be up for an interview and here’s the final answer: an interview! Consider this an hors d’oeuvre to the forthcoming Epicly Later’d featuring a...

JxPx Blackmon wasn't there from the very beginning of jackass in 2000 on MTV, but it was close. Damn close. But what's funny is that he didn't come into it as the shady prop guy we would all soon know him to be—at first he was just a shady PA.... Continue reading

The other day, and quite sadly so, we learned that Craig Conolly, aka Craig Mack, a friend and former crew member of ours, had passed away. We first met Craig during production on jackass the movie in 2002, when it came down to shooting the "professional" looking part of the... Continue reading

Rick Kosick: So how did you get this gig to direct Dumb: The Story of Big Brother Magazine? Patrick O’Dell: Hulu called Jeff [Tremaine], and I don’t know if Jeff thought of it, you know, “let’s make a documentary about my magazine,” but I think Hulu thought, “let’s make one... Continue reading

In Los Angeles. Last Friday. And Saturday, actually, but that was more of a public affair, whereas the previous night was the VIP extravaganza (with an extra helping of the vaganza). Anyway, as always, here is a smorgasbord of people photos to pick through and feast upon, kind of like... Continue reading

Rick Kosick: So I’m here with Wee-Man at his new Chronic Tacos location. Where are we? Wee-Man: This location is off Bellflower and Stearns, in the city of Long Beach. Right down the street is Cal State Long Beach. How long has this location been open? This location was open... Continue reading

I don't think any of us ever imagined a documentary about Big Brother skateboard magazine would find its wayward way into a film festival, but by god it did! The Tribeca film festival no less. So it was with great grandeur and a little red carpet that several of us... Continue reading

I first met Brandon Novak in the earlier half of the '90s when he was a promising young skateboarder from Baltimore, Maryland. The next time I met him was just over a decade later while we were shooting footage for jackass number two and he was a shambling wreck of... Continue reading

Rick Kosick: So what’s going on with this tour, are you guys supporting a new album? CIG: Shit, we’re back! And we’re just thrilled. All day long it’s just CKY again. Jess Margera: Yeah, we did an album at Rancho De La Luna out in Joshua Tree back in July... Continue reading

The other day, and quite out of the blue, someone asked me if I had appeared in the music video for "Snapped" by the Phunk Junkeez. I was shocked, because A) I'm not a face often (or ever) recognized; and B) I'd completely forgotten about the video as I thought... Continue reading

That's right. And you saw it here first! Unless you happened to be one of the 40-odd people who crammed ass into Bret Banta's house for his inaugural comedy show in Los Angeles, California, which would make this the second time you saw anything about it. All wordy technicalities aside,... Continue reading

I don't know if that title makes any sense, but it sure sounds cool. We first met Charlie on jackass 3D in 2010, when he came on as our stunt coordinator. Charlie was awesome, because he actually worked with us on stunts—not against us as many safety advisors had in... Continue reading

The Smut Peddlers need no introduction. Unless you’re unfamiliar with them, in which case, yeah, you probably do need an introduction, but you know what? Fuck you. That’s why. Any fan of jackass and Big Brother skateboard magazine should already have a working knowledge of the Smut Peddlers, because their... Continue reading

This past Wednesday night in the city of Los Angeles, Gorilla Flicks and Superjacket Productions came together in Voltron-like fashion to host a night of free comedy at the Covenant House. If you're like me and had no prior idea about the Covenant House, it's an organization that provides basic... Continue reading

What does summertime mean to you? It could be many things, I suppose, like enjoying time off barbecuing with family and friends, going on a fancy European vacation, swimming at the pubic pool, taking a nap on a hammock in your backyard, camping in the wilderness, riding bikes, hanging out...

Los Angeles is a melting pot of creativity that brings millions of people here every year to pursue their dreams, whether it’s to play guitar in a band, become a movie star, land a job working behind-the-scenes as a big-time Hollywood producer, or become a standup comedian. Or it could... Continue reading

It's that festive time of year again where we bring you some semi-biased gift-giving and get-me-this ideas that are near and dear to our collective heart. Most all can be bought with a simple click and a valid credit card, so knock back some eggnog and do your online shopping... Continue reading

The ninth season of Ridiculousness is currently in production, so Rick Kosick called up co-host Sterling "Steelo" Brim to talk about where he's at, where he's been, and where he's going to; or, in other words, the lyrics to "The Theme to Mahogany," by Diana Ross—although not entirely in that...

I first met Brody Stevens back when I worked on the Ridiculousness TV show. He was doing crowd warmup before the show was taped to get everyone all hyped up when Rob Dyrdek, Sterling Brim, and Chanel West Coast would walk onstage. At first I was like, "This guy looks... Continue reading

Tonight I strongly urge you, your loved ones, or any other human in general to attend a swinging little photo show taking place in the city of San Francisco. "Debris: Thirty Years of Skateboarding and Music Photography" features the work of Bernie McGinn, a Nebraskan of hearty DIY/creative stock who... Continue reading

Over the years we've worked with a lot of amazing people on jackass and Wildboyz, but I think we'd all have to agree that one of the most interesting characters was definitely Manny Puig. Although he is often referred to as a modern day Tarzan, I'm more inclined to think... Continue reading

One night I got a phone call from Tremaine seeing if I wanted to go with him to check out this musician friend of his that was playing in Downtown LA. It was somebody he’d recently worked with, Dr. Sick. At first I was on the fence about the idea... Continue reading
