Jackass producers, Jeff Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville have teamed up with the creators of the Nitro Circus DVD series, Travis Pastrana, Gregg Godfrey and Jeremy Rawle, to deliver MTV's next smash hit series "Nitro Circus." Travis Pastrana, nine-time X Games Gold Medalist, has built an empire doing things previously thought impossible and always unadvisable. The Nitro Circus franchise includes DVD's, licensed merchandise, and now a MTV series. Whether it's jumping out of an airplane without a parachute or being the first person ever to double black flip a motorcycle, Pastrana does not stop. Joining him in the cast are his equally insane and entertaining buddies: childhood friend and professional mountain biker Jim DeChamp, charismatic loud-mouth nemesis Andy Bell, skier/base jumper Erik Roner, professional female motocross racer Jolene Van Vugt, and husky and hysterical formersheet-rocker Streetbike Tommy. Their hilariously intense and irrational game of one-upsmanship coupled with their strong friendship makes this trainwreck the most watchable show in years.
"Unlike Jackass, the Nitro Circus guys actually are professionals, but that doesn't mean they got all their marbles, because they don't. I am wondering if these yahoos got any." - Johnny Knoxville
