Description

Though Skinema "reviews" over 150 pornos, Nieratko hardly ever mentions them, focusing instead on the pill-popping exploits that he's documented unapologetically over the past seven years in his column for Vice Magazine—much to his editors chagrin. As Johnny Knoxville so succinctly put it, Nieratko is an asshole, but whether Chris is rescuing a stalker from choking on her own vomit, getting his nose broken for having AIDS (he doesn't) or marrying the one woman that could put up with his insanity, his life sounds so much like a collection of hilarious bar stories it's impossible not to grab a beer and listen to the whole thing.




About the Author

Chris Nieratko was born in 1976 in New Jersey where he still lives today. His first job after writing for the seminal skateboarding magazine Big Brother was editing a series of incredibly disgusting porn magazines until he was fired for making fun of them. Nieratko continues to write for almost every magazine around. He spends the rest of his time managing his skateboarding shop. Skinema is his first book.

Johnny Knoxville is co-creator and star of MTV's Jackass. He has starred in numerous films.
