1. Life Threatening Injuries

The dangerous stunts and obnoxious pranks were as stupid as they were funny — until the injuries became all too real.
Although Knoxville was constantly thumbing his nose at danger during his crazy stunts, he actually suffered several serious injuries. While filming the Jackass film series, he was seriously injured as the result of a rocket explosion. He also got a concussion and needed stitches after being knocked out by professional boxer Butterbean during the filming of Jackass 2.
As if that wasn’t enough, he also tore his urethra after failing to do a backflip on a motorcycle. By Knoxville’s own admission, he had to use a catheter to relieve himself for over three years.
That’s quite the price to pay for physical comedy.
