Philip John “PJ” Clapp, Jr., known by his stage name Johnny Knoxville, is an American stunt performer, comedian, actor, screenwriter and film producer.

Knoxville was born on March 11, 1971 in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA as Philip John Clapp. After graduating from high school at age 18, he moved to California to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Pasadena on a scholarship.

He appeared mostly in commercials and made several minor appearances as an extra. When the “big break” he sought eluded him, he decided to create his own opportunities by writing and pitching article ideas to various magazines. An idea to test self-defense equipment on himself captured the interest of Jeff Tremaine’s skateboarding magazine Big Brother, and the stunts were filmed and included in Big Brother’s “Number Two” video.
