Rake Yohn (born Edward Carl Webb; January 20, 1975 and sometimes stylized as 'Rakeyohn') is a member of the CKY Crew and a regular in the CKY Videos, MTV's Viva La Bam and Jackass.[1]

Life and career[edit]

Yohn was born in West Chester, Pennsylvania. He attended Penn State University, graduating in 1997 with a BS in Chemistry, and is now a chemist specializing in synthetic materials.[2] He is the older brother of Art Webb, an occasional CKY Crew member. He is known for his long hair, love for metal, and strong dislike of mustard.

Rake Yohn's face is on the cover of CKY2K as well as the cover of the 1999 re-issue of CKY's Volume 2 album. The image was also used on a limited edition Tech Deck released exclusively for the game Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3. On the CKY DVD, Infiltrate•Destroy•Rebuild: The Video Album, Yohn complained that "his face was on DVDs, shirts and Tech Decks, and he hasn't seen a dime for any of them."

In 2009 Rake Yohn, Brandon Dicamillo and brother Art Webb provided voice-overs for the Xbox Live Arcade Game Trials HD.[3]

The history of the CKY crew according to Rake:

For instance, the guy that I probably knew the best was Brandon DiCamillo because his sister was my age, and he was friends with my younger brother, Art. So, eventually, from Brandon and Art hanging out, I started hanging out with Brandon. One day, I think it was a Saturday morning, he was like, "You feel like coming out and filming?" And up at Penn State, I had helped a couple people with some of their college movie stuff, so it was like, "What the hell? 'Something to watch later on." That ended up being the "Army" skit from "Landspeed." You know, it ended up pretty crazy. Then, another day, he wanted to film the "Legend of Football" bit, you know?[citation needed]

In 2012 Rake featured as a voice over in the video game 'Trials: Evolution'
