One of the team said he had come over from the “Jackass” troupe and the difference was, “There, the stunts weren’t really meant to work and everybody knew it. Here, if the stunt doesn’t work, sometimes it means you’re dead.”
They hold the world record for some obscure things, like the longest and highest jump of a semi (the cab that pulls those 18-wheelers on the freeway), or for successful double-backward circles in the air on a tricycle, landing it on its wheels. Or vaulting through the air from the roof of one 30-story high building, across the gap onto the roof of the adjacent building (on bikes, on trikes…) That gap was not a small gap. The distance to the ground was a long, long way.
Their crowning glory was a live performance in Las Vegas with a packed stadium. Perhaps the most remarkable member of the troupe was a guy born with spina bifida who is permanently confined to a wheelchair. He’d do full circles in the air in his wheelchair the way the other guys would on a trike or a dirt bike or dirt cycle. The difference, of course, was that his lower spinal cord was already injured and that he couldn’t just get up and walk away if he didn’t land properly.
If you like insane sports, you’ll probably enjoy watching the movie. I don’t recommend the lifestyle, but do recommend the movie.
It's not like Jackass if you are wondering. Jackass is about pain and torture and just stupidity for the sake of stupidity. This show is about daring, borderline crazy, STUNTS. While a lot of what they did on Jackass was specifically to injure themselves, the Nitro Circus is about successfully completing crazy stunts and hopefully not getting too injured. Of course, any difficult stunt takes a lot of practice and a lot of failures before success, and this is the core of the show - showing us the 49 failed attempts before the one amazing, beautiful success.
