Prepare to faint at Steve-O’s triple X-rated comedy show Wednesday night

It’s Tender Tuesday. Consider making a donation to The Daily Orange to ensure we continue to produce stories like this.

The last time Steve “Steve-O” Glover came to Syracuse, the crowd at Syracuse Crunch booed him, but this time in town expect the audience to laugh — and maybe even faint — at the triple X-rated show. MTV’s “Jackass” is on tour for his stand-up comedy show “The Bucket List Tour,” and will perform at Westcott Theater Wednesday night at 8 p.m.

The Daily Orange interviewed Glover about his upcoming show in Syracuse, as he prepares to stand up and give advice to students in college today. This interview has been edited for clarity and brevity.

Daily Orange:

Have you visited Syracuse before?

Steve “Steve-O” Glover:

Oh yeah, great time. I was there for a hockey game in 2014, and it was Syracuse Crunch (the hockey subsidiary of Tampa Bay Lighting). They asked me to do a stunt where I’d be like a human slingshot, and they were tossing me across the ice in cans. And when I went to rehearsal, I was like, “That’s not commonly enough.”

So what I needed was to get everyone to shoot me while I slingshot across the ice and I ended up with a big, big fail and like everyone else was booing and kind of bothered me.

But yeah, I mean, that was just one randomized trial. She comments because it was noticeable. But I’ve been to Syracuse a few times, like I had great experiences at the Syracuse Funny Bone Comedy Club in Destiny USA.

Do:

When you come, will you be here just for the show? Can you visit any friends or places here?

SG:

Yes, there will not be much time. I’ll be in a different city every day. I will travel in a tour bus. And whatever time I generally spend working on you know, this or that, I have my production team on the tour bus. So we do filming or editing or something like that. We skate pretty, busy around the clock.

Do:

What will the show look like?

SG:

It’s a multimedia show called “The Bucket List Tour” so the set list consists of the best stunts I’ve ever been serious about because they’re over the top. It was a very ambitious idea to try and implement, and it did.

I filmed all the stunts and then made this show out of all these ideas. After each segment on the show, I show a stunt until you see everything I described. These stunts are triple X rated and extremely sexually explicit. A lot of the things I did were blatantly illegal. As if I got a medical professional to put an IV in my arm and administer general anesthesia while riding a bike. Explicit sex is where I was naked with this guy tied to my back in a plane (masturbating) when I fell off a plane.

Do:

cute ah.

SG:

Yes, that was a challenge. It’s basically everything I wouldn’t do for ‘Jackass’, and so I did it on my own – without insurance and set up this crazy show.

Do:

I read the audience to sign a waiver before coming to the show. Is this correct?

SG:

You sign a waiver when you purchase your tickets to the fair; There is legal language there. Furthermore, we then announce that there are legal disclaimers posted about the venue. And while I’m on stage, I make it clear: You’re all here at your own risk. And in almost every city we go to, we have at least a whole man who has lost consciousness in the crowd. Like, men lose consciousness.

Do:

How were the crowds, other than fainting?

SG:

Severe and explosive. It gives me quite a bit of anxiety about how to proceed with this show. Because, you know, it’s pretty intense, but my wheels have been spinning really hard for a while. Like I’m starting to think, I’m sure I’ve got another one inside of me.

Do:

What has given you the most confidence during your career?

SG:

At first, the first time I ever stood up was as scary as anything could be. But again, it makes sense, because when I was a kid in elementary school I was too scared to stand in front of the class to give a presentation. And it’s even scarier if you’re trying to make people laugh.

But when you stick to this and begin to develop an action, you will find a comfort zone. And if you’re trying something new, it’s less intimidating when you know you can go straight to something that’s proven.

Do:

Back in your college days at the University of Miami, were there any memorable stunts?

SG:

My first day in college at the University of Miami as a freshman that night was Hurricane Andrew. While everyone was evacuated to the hallways of their college dorms, I was swimming across the lake on campus. There were a lot of things. I was always about to do something there.

Do:

So any advice for college students who want to do some pranks?

SG:

I have really good advice on how to get into university because I learned from my mistakes. The secret to graduating from college is attendance. If you go to each semester religiously, you always know when to do the minimum work. But, you see, I skipped this and that, turning into a slippery slope. Then by not attending class I had no idea when to do the minimal work and of course I failed. Just remember it’s very easy to skip a semester and think you’ll just skip this one, but you have to go to every semester and then college is really not that difficult.

Do:

Have you ever thought about going back for a degree?

SG:

I’m not very interested in going back to college. Although my parents always encouraged me to take a class in accounting, which I think I can benefit from in my own small way. I’m evolving and learning, and I’ve definitely come to wear more hats as I’ve grown older in my career.
