What is Johnny Knoxville’s Net Worth?


Johnny Knoxville’s net worth was estimated at $75 million as of June 2022.

Johnny Knoxville is an American actor, film producer, screenwriter and stuntman. He was born in Knoxville. He is perhaps best known for his role as co-creator, star, and host of MTV’s reality show Jackass. It aired for three consecutive seasons from 2000 to 2002.

Early Life

His father, who was a car salesman and played practical jokes on his family had a negative impact on little Johnny.

He attended South Young High School, graduating in 1989. He was a great student and received a scholarship to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.


Knoxville was a difficult person to work for in his early years. He was unable to find good acting roles and appeared as an extra in commercials. To make extra money, he began writing articles for magazines.

While brainstorming ideas for articles, he had the idea of trying self-defense equipment on himself. Jeff Tremaine, the editor of ‘Big Brother’ skateboarding magazine, liked Johnny’s idea and advised him to film it for stories.

Tremaine showed the video to Spike Jonze, his director friend. He decided to make a series on it. Tremaine, Tremaine, and Johnny would be the executive producers of this series.

MTV signed the deal and Jackass was born. From 2000 to 2002, the reality show featured dangerous stunts and pranks.

In 2007, Jackass 2.5 was released on DVD. It featured never before seen stunts, deleted scenes, and photos from the cast.

In 2010, Jackass 3D released the third film in its Jackass film series.

Three Lessons From Johnny Knoxville & Jackass

Now that you’re familiar with Johhny’s net worth and how he became successful, let’s look at some of his lessons.

1. You don’t need a big budget

Jackass has a small budget to produce its films, which is significantly less than typical feature films. It also doesn’t have any impact on the entertainment value.

This is true even more online, as videos that go viral have often little to no budget.

2. There is strength in numbers

Jackass has been a success because it involves a group of guys performing stunts and not just one man.

The competition among the guys motivates them to accomplish more and better things than they would do on their own. The audience can also connect with other Jackass crew members and highlight their individuality.

3. Keep it simple

People love simple things and like to talk and share about them. Jackass is both.

To “get” a Jackass film, you don’t have to have a college degree. You also don’t have to have seen any other Jackass movies to be able to appreciate their latest masterpiece.

People think that by challenging my abilities, they will prove they can be tough. But I’m not difficult. Decent drinker. Not a terrible kisser. However, it is not a great fighter.
