Steve-O at Helium Comedy Club - PHOTOS

Helium Comedy Club in downtown Buffalo is known for bringing in some of the biggest names in stand-up comedy. They really outdid themselves this weekend with the debut of Steve-O from the popular MTV show ‘Jackass’ and ensuing movies.
Steve-O became a household name when he teamed up with Bam Margera, Johnny Knoxville and others to put together the hit show ‘Jackass’. It was a popular show in the early 2000s that displayed a bunch of guys doing all sorts of stunts to hurt themselves in order to create a few laughs. The show was great, the movies were even better, and now the stand-up is unreal!
Steve-O was also known to have a few bad habits back in the ‘Jackass’ days like drugs, alcohol, and even an obsession with sex. [Read Buffalo.com’s interview with Steve-O]
Since then he has learned to overcome all of these habits and turn them into fuel that powers his stand-up career. He went on stage at Helium on Friday night and told everybody in attendance about all of these issues that he had in the past (and even some from the present).
Steve-O definitely does not hide from his past but instead he likes to share these experiences with people in order to receive the same thing that ‘Jackass” was created to receive: a few laughs. He achieved everything he set out to as he had everyone laughing hysterically from his past experiences, his raunchy jokes, and even some of his unbelievable stunts (yes, he even did some stunts on stage as well).
Steve-O will finish out the Buffalo stop of his tour Saturday night with two more shows at Helium Comedy Club.
If you were unable to attend on Thursday or Friday then make sure to head downtown on Saturday night to catch one of his last performances before he leaves town. If you happen to miss all three days you can always just find his hilarious stunts/comedy on YouTube or on DVD at your local video store.
