Bam Margera is an American professional skateboarder, television and radio personality, actor and daredevil who came to prominence after appearing in MTV's Jackass crew.
He has since appeared in MTV's Viva La Bam and Bam's Unholy Union, all three Jackass movies, and Haggard and Minghags, both of which he co-wrote and directed.
Bam first broke onto the national scene as a 13-year-old pro-skater known for his creative street style and wild antics. As a teenager, he created the CKY video series, which featured skating, pranks and stunts - all filmed in his hometown of West Chester, Pa.
The combination of Bam's unique on-screen personality and the tremendous grassroots success of the CKY video series became the platform for MTV's Jackass and the highly successful theatrical releases Jackass: The Movie and Jackass Number Two.
Bam then went on to star in MTV's Viva La Bam and Bam's Unholy Union which he also produced and directed.
In addition to Bam's television and film projects, he continues to be heavily involved in the music industry through his work directing music videos, his show "Radio Bam" on Sirius Satellite Radio and his "Viva La Bands" CD/DVD series and tour.
A tribute to his athlete superstardom, Bam's merchandise is one of the best selling signature series in action sports. In late 2009, Bam also released a book entitled "Serious as Dog Dirt."
Bam starred in the hit feature film Jackass 3-D and Spike TV's Bam's World Domination. He also hosted his own episode of MTV's Punk'd where he surprised some of his unsuspecting famous friends.
