Bam’s Mom: Bam! Your friends just buried my car in snow!
Bam Margera: They’re not my friends.
An older show that I must have watched many times over when I was younger. The show is about 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. Each show was themed differently and always had something different in every episode. It lasted for five seasons and had 43 episodes in its run.
Has widely been speculated that the tv show was scripted. While many end credit scenes had written jokes, Bam would rehearse speeches to explain the basis of the episodes, the rest of the series is currently uncertain to know for sure. Four specials came out of this tv series.
Recommended episodes from the Viva La Bam show:
- Don’t Feed Phil
- April’s revenge
- Scavenger Hunt
- Tree Top Casino
- Demo Derby
- Mall of Bam
- CKY gets jobs
- State of Bam
- CKY Challenge
- Metal Mulisha
- Bam on the river
For the sake of interesting reality, the show had some creative ideas I would like to try. In high school, me and my friends attempted to do a scavenger hunt similar to what they did on the show. Many celebrities appear on this show and make their role in episodes interesting. I recommend this show to people who like Bam Margera and creative reality shows.
Bam Margera: Row your boat!
Bam’s Uncle: Row my boat where? Gently down the stream?
