Bam first entered 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 home town 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 the hit MTV show Jackass and the Jackass films. In addition to his television and film projects, Bam continues to be heavily involved in the music industry with his Filthy Note record label, directing music videos, his show Radio Bam on Sirius Satellite Radio, his West Chester club, The Note, and his Viva La Bands CD/DVD series and tour. Over a very short period of time, Bam has proven himself to be a top-tier athlete and innovator in the film, television, and music industries. Bam's appeal to the youth market is undeniable and, as his brand continues to grow, so will his celebrity status and influence.
