Celebrity Birthday of the Day – September 28

Bam Margera. I don’t know whether to be in awe of him or scared of him. He’s sort of like the bratty kid that we all knew while growing up, except he’s older than us and has an army of fans willing to do the stupidest things at the drop of a hat. His TV series Viva La Bam opened with him saying he could do “whatever the fuck I want”. In addition to be a prominent hooligan, Bam is a professional skateboarder, and has been skateboarding since 1988. He and his goofy friends (Ryan Dunn, Brandon DiCamillo, Chris Raab, Rake Yohn, and Brandon Novak) would often videotape themselves pulling pranks on people, performing stunts and skateboarding, and these videos eventually became the CKY series – straight-to-DVD movies released independently and often sold at skate shops. Jeff Tremaine, at the time working on Big Brother magazine, drafted Bam to be part of the Jackass stunt crew. Bam became one of the front men of the series, and would go on to star in three seasons of the Jackass TV series and in the movies Jackass: The Movie, Jackass: Number Two, and Jackass 3D. He’s directed feature-length fiction films – namely Haggard and Minghags, as well as several music videos. And, well, he’s totally crazy. But I can’t deny that I find him entertaining. Bam turns 33 today.
