Dave England (born December 30, 1969) is an American actor, stunt performer, and former professional snowboarder. He is known for appearing on the MTV series Jackass, as well as the films Jackass: The Movie, Jackass: Number Two, and Jackass 3D.
Life and career
Johnny Knoxville stated on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart that England has just one testicle as a result of a snowboarding accident. This is shown to be true in a scene from Jackass Number Two in which England attaches a leech to his scrotum. He has a daughter named Ruby (who was born July 13, 2001 and claimed to be present during a stunt performed in the first movie, though off-camera), a son named Roan ( born January 12, 2004 and who appears in a deleted interview scene of Jackass 2.5) and another son named Clyde (who was born on September 1, 2012) . On 21 May 2015, England's fourth child was born, with the name being revealed on his Twitter profile as Van Alexander England. As seen in Jackass 3.5, England skateboards during his spare time.
Dave England was once a professional snowboarder and is featured in several of Kingpin Productions' snowboarding videos, including: 'Bulletproof' and 'Back in Black.' He was founder of the snowboarding magazine Skintight Magazine. He once worked as the field editor for Snowboarder Magazine and was the editor of "Blunt" magazine, the sister snowboarding magazine to skateboarding's Big Brother. Dave also appears in the movie Shred, costarring Tom Green. The film, about a snowboarding school run by England's character, was filmed at Big White, a ski resort in Canada.
Role in Jackass
Dave gets involved in stunts and pranks much like the rest of the cast, but he is the first one to get involved in something when fecal matter is involved. Dave proclaimed himself on the Jackass Number Two DVD commentary that he is the "world's first professional shitter", in as much as he gets paid to defecate on TV.
He jokingly claims that he is the only proven person in the world that is capable of defecating (and vomiting) on command although he finds urinating on command to be difficult.
In one stunt (on Jackass), Dave eats a number of uncooked ingredients that he thinks would be suitable for making an omelette. He then forces himself to become sick by drinking raw eggs, and proceeds to vomit into a bowl, which he then empties into a pan to fry. Finally, he, very enthusiastically, eats the omelette he has just made. One of Dave's skits (Poo Diaper) almost didn't make it to TV. This skit involves Dave reaching into a garbage can and eating out of a baby's diaper, which contains chocolate pudding. Johnny Knoxville told MTV to keep the skit, and after many debates MTV let Jackass keep "Poo Diaper".
