Show Summary

Join sadomasochistic superheroes Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, and the rest of the Jackass crew as they terrorize your TV screens and everyone that gets in their way (especially themselves) with their own sick and twisted interpretation of physical entertainment. Their brand of pranks, goofball antics, and unabashed brutal comedy are sure to bring new meaning to the phrase "Don't Try This At Home!"

To this date, Jackass ranks as one of MTV's highest rated programs. However, controversy surrounding the show's tastelessness and violence led to it's inevitable cancellation. However, the Jackass legacy continues to live on with late night syndication on MTV and MTV2. More impressively, however, followed with the silver screen release of Jackass: The Movie, as well as current MTV spin-offs Viva La Bam and Wildboyz.

    • The gods of comedy

      Anyone who dislikes Jackass are obviously boring people with lack of sense of humor, I can tell they are lame people to hang around with, I feel sorry for them! Jackass should be respected no matter how daring they are. They risk their lives for us, they hurt their balls to gives us a laugh, who does that? Man these guys are cool, its just their job, we all have done "stupid" things in our lives even after growing up for free, the difference is that they do it for money. Jackass rules enough saidmoreless
    • Redeems from the other crap on MTV.

      Apparently this show is related to those stupid reality shows on MTV nowadays like Jersey Shore, 16 and Pregnant, Teen Mom. If you want to skip this and go watch those crappy reality shows then be my guest, but I must tell you, you're missing out on all the fun! Generally reality shows are just pure mind boggiling garbage about the life of celebrities yelling and cursing over stupid crap and f@#%ing up their lifes even more. But unlike most reality shows that are garbage, Jackass is the exception. The stunts they do on Jackass are so outrageously funny and never fail to make me laugh. Sure some people may find their stunts stupid, and I'll admit, they are but they are done in a funny way, if you know what I mean. If you're wondering why they never get hurt it's because they are professionals, meaning that they've tried out this stuff before. Just like the warning at the begining of the show says, if you're a kid or teenage, DO NOT try any of these stunts at home, ONLY do them if you are a professional. And believe me, I used to watch this when I was liittle, but I never peformed these stunts. I highly reccomend Jackass if you're tired of this casual reality garbage on TV nowadays. It is a fun, funny and intense show and I highly reccomenf it especially if you're into shows about people performing extreme stunts, it's definetley a must watch and one of my favorite shows of all time. Rating: 10/10

    • Crazy ass

      What the hell. Not bad.
    • A bunch of guys do wild stunts

      This show has a bunch of funny skits, but then again there are those that make you question them. Like are the jackass guys gay i mean no offense but i really think steve o and pontius have a bromance. Allright thats the only bad thing i got too say about this show. I am comfortable with my own sexuality but sometimes Jackass takes it too far. But otherwise this show is a great party show gather up some friends sit back drink and watch it. The movies are where it is at in my opinion. Plus the shows barely air anymore.moreless
    • Love it.

      It's an awesome show: a couple of guys living life to the fullest, having fun and getting injured.

      It's defenitely worth buying the seasons and movies (just ordered 7 of them).

      And to all the haters: I don't care if you don't like the movie, but you shouldn't go around saying that whoever does like it has mental problems or a low IQ, we just love a good show, that's all."moreless
