Jason 'Wee Man' Acuña,
A show that follows Bam Margera (of Jackass and CKY fame) in his attempts to anger his parents. Unlike CKY or Jackass, Viva La Bam focuses mainly on the torture of Bam's parents and less on harmful stunts.

Yes, this is a couple of hours of footage of rather silly chaps jumping off things, getting drunk/stoned/peed on, whatever. Obviously, this is funny to most people, including me. Each Steve-o DVD is basically a lower budget version of Jackass, with more trashing of hotel rooms etc than actual stunt-work, if you can call it that. It's nonetheless entertaining though, as long as you laugh with pity at these hapless gents, rather than look up to them... - Take Heed Kiddies!
There is some stuff on this DVD however, that is a little too much. The sight of Nick Dunlap getting wasted on Jack Daniels and trashing a bar filled with nice people while his buddies laugh isn't funny - they just make themselves look like immature nasty little men - which most of them are. Presenting footage of these moments takes away from the healthier illusion that these guys have good hearts, and like to goof around without harming anyone else, so you feel less inclined to laugh for a while afterwards when you realize that they have a bit of a crappy side to their personalities.
Steve-O and his buddies are not big, and they're not clever, but they can entertain, and they are willing to use pee-pee and pooh-pooh to get the desired effect - what more can you ask? If your under 80 years old, and aren't into antiques and whatnot, this should raise a laugh or two, or at least make you thankful you've never taken PCP...
