Born on September 28, 1979
to April and Phil Margera, their second and last child, Brandon Cole
Margera, dubbed the nickname Bam from his grandfather when he was little due to his crazy nature we all know. Obviously, the name has stuck with him ever since!
Bam pretty much grew up around his older brother Jess and his band mateswhich includes his current band, the world famous, CKY. While he was in high school, Bam and his crew, Raab Himself, Brandon DiCamillo, Ryan Dunn, Rake Yohn and a couple other friends, would make random hilarious movies that wouldstar him, his friends, and CKY. These movies are now extremely popular and are a must see to Bam Margera and CKY fans everywhere. If you haven't seen them, I guarantee they will be the funniest movies you will ever see in your life. Bam then dropped out of high school after Raab got expelled for smearing crapon another students locker, but still, he kept on producing movies.
Throughout Bam's life, one of his main priorities has been skateboarding.Since 1988, you could find Bam skateboarding around his hometown of West Chester, Pa, which definitely paid off when he was given the chance to turn pro. This pro skater boarder is now sponsored by Element, Adio, Volcom, Diakka, Electric,
Fairman´s, Spitfire, Destroyer, Jone´s Soda, and of course, Cky. You can even skate as him in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 & 4, as well as Tony Hawk's Underground.
Bam's career as a professional really started to take off when he became part of MTV's JACKASS crew. On JACKASS, you could see Bam do unimaginable yet hilarious and sometimes nasty stunts, with stars such as Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, as well as his friends and often, his family. After JACKASS'S huge success, MTV gave Bam the once in a lifetime opportunity to have his own show on MTV, called Viva La Bam.
Bam Margera has come one hell of a long way this past decade, and by the wayhe draws fans to him through his one of a kind personality and his amazing skating ability, it's guaranteed that Bam Margera will be around for a very long time!
