Jackass is a half-hour television series, originally shown on MTV and first produced in 1999 in which a group of grown men do various humiliating, dangerous and/or ridiculous stunts of senseless stupidity for fun. Its target audience is mainly boys, especially teens. The show ran for three seasons, the first episode aired on April 12, 2000 and the 25th and final episode aired on February 17, 2002. It was followed by the 2002 feature film, Jackass: The Movie, which was essentially an extended, uncensored episode of the TV show. The show was created by Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze, and Jeff Tremaine.
Though the cast members were often classified as a troupe, in reality most filming was done separately by different groups. Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn, and Brandon DiCamillo all filmed in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Johnny Knoxville, Chris Pontius, and others in California, and Dave England and Ehren McGhehey in Oregon.
In April 2001 Johnny Knoxville and other cast members participated in the Gumball 3000, a rally from Britain to Russia and back. Video footage of this constituted the entire seventh episode of the third series.
In the summer of 2003, Johnny Knoxville left the show. Remaining cast members are now featured in the spinoff shows Viva La Bam and Wildboyz.
A British version of the series was produced by MTV called Dirty Sanchez (or Team Sanchez in the U.S.). It is more controversial than Jackass with a high content of extreme stunts and strong swear words, as well as full frontal male nudity.
There is also a South African parody of Jackass and other 'extreme' shows of its genre, called Crazy Monkey.
