Bam Margera Net Worth, Biography & Wiki 2017

Brandon Cole Margera, to the public known as Bam Margera, is a widely known American television, as well as radio personality, professional skateboarder, actor, film editor and producer, and a stunt performer. Bam Margera is perhaps mostly recognized as a member of a stunt and prank crew “Jackass”, which was co-created by his friend Johnny Knoxville. The group became famous in the early 2000s, mainly due to a variety of dangerous pranks they performed on film, some of which resulted in many injuries. The fame of “Jackass” helped Margera and Knoxville, as well as other member of the team to successfully establish themselves in the entertainment industry.

Bam Margera Net Worth $45 Million

One may wonder how rich is Bam Margera? According to sources, Bam Margera’s net worth is estimated to be $45 million. The main source for Bam Margera’s net worth and wealth is the entertainment industry. Bam Margera was born in 1979, in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Bam is an older brother of Jess Margera who is a famous drummer for an alternative metal band “CKY”. Bam Margera started his career by making videos of himself and his friends and labeling them as CKY (“Camp Kill Yourself”) video series. The earliest videos featured Margera’s friends who would later become his partners on “Jackass”, as well as other projects. CKY videos included Ryan Dunn, Chris Raab, Brandon Novak and Brandon DiCamillo. With the release of four CKY video series, the fame of the group grew steadily and soon enough they were noticed by a film and television producer Jeff Tremaine who invited them to join what would soon become “Jackass”. “Jackass” soon proved to be a highly successful project, as they not only managed to attract large viewership to the show, but released several commercially profitable full-length movies. Bam Margera appeared in the very first “Jackass: The Movie” that grossed over $79 million in the box office, “Jackass Number Two”, and “Jackass 3D” that managed to gross more than $170 million in the box office sales. Needless to say, Bam Margera’s net worth was on the rise at the time. After three seasons with “Jackass”, Margera continued his successful solo career. In 2003, Margera debuted with a reality television series “Viva La Bam”, and several years later debuted with another series titled “Bam’s Unholy Union” that featured his fiancée at the time Missy Rothstein.

Even though Bam Margera is mostly known as a television personality, he has been actively partaking in other projects as well. Margera is a professional skateboarder and is currently a part of “Team Element” with sponsorships from Fairman’s Skateshop and Speed Metal Bearings. Margera has also starred and directed several independent movies, including “Haggard”, “Minghags” and “Bam Margera Presents: Where the Fuck is Santa?”. In addition to that, Margera has been featured in several games created by his fellow pro-skateboarder Tony Hawk, such as “Pro Skaters 3”, “Underground” and “American Wasteland”. Margera also owns record label called “Filthy Note Records” and has directed music videos for many bands. Bam Margera’s net worth currently amounts to $45 million.
