Life and career
Pontius was born in Pasadena, California and raised in San Luis Obispo. As a teenager, he met his future Jackass collaborators when he was interviewed in skateboarding magazine Big Brother.

Role in Jackass
Pontius mostly performs stunts involving nudity, such as him dancing out in public while wearing nothing but a thong. He also mostly performs stunts involving his penis, most notably getting it bit by a snake, and flying an RC helicopter with his penis by tying thread around it to the RC helicopter, which is how Jackass 3D received the green-light. He also performs stunts and pranks involving him playing different characters, like him being dressed up as the devil while walking through the streets and holding a sign with "Keep God out of California" written on it, and him being a barbarian while facing off against scorpions.
