A fast-paced life with occasional accidents and downfalls best describes the one led by Bam Margera. This professional skateboarder turned television personality has had quite a few adventures that few would dare to try. Formally known as Brandon Cole Margera, he got his nickname “Bam” from constantly running into walls at three years old.
The Pennsylvania native first got his start in skateboarding in Chester County with some of his closest friends. They started a Camp Kill Yourself (CKY) video series that showcased them performing dangerous stunts. A producer took notice of Bam and recruited him to the notorious MTV show Jackass.
