COMEDY: Steve-O at The Comedy Zone Charlotte

Thursday, July 28



Stephen Glover, better know as Steve-O, has made a living doing off-the-wall maneuvers — from the disgusting (jumping into a tub of elephant dung) to the stupid (skateboarding antics and setting himself on fire), to the downright dangerous (interactions with lions, tigers and bears) — on the TV series' Jackass (as well as follow-up feature films) and Wildboyz. But what followed his fame, as often is the case, was a drug addiction more toxic and destructive than anything seen with his daring stints on reality shows. The whole fiasco is documented in his new book Professional Idiot: My Insane Quest to Become the World's Most Famous Moron. He'll be at Barnes and Noble (Morrison Place) for a signing (July 30) and he'll also be hitting up The Comedy Zone Charlotte (July 28-30) while on his "Entirely Too Much Information Tour." The stand-up gig should come natural for Steve-O, as he is more than capable of cracking jokes. Let's just hope he doesn't break anything in the process. (To read an interview with Steve-O, visit Book signing: July 30, noon. Barnes and Noble (Morrison Place), 4020 Sharon Road. 704-364-0626. Comedy shows: July 28, 8 p.m.; July 29, 8 p.m. & 10:15 p.m. July 30, 7 p.m. & 9 p.m. $25-$30. The Comedy Zone Charlotte, 900 Seaboard St., Ste. B3.
