- Go, Travis!

- Yeah!

Hey, Travis!

Nitro Circus started very organically

with a group of friends.

It's their childhood dream that's

manifesting itself in the present moment.

People are so conditioned in

watching movies that they all think it's fake.

There's real life on the line

in what Nitro does.

Go, Travis!

To get to a live tour and

actually pull it off is insanity.

It was not possible.

These guys will never make it.

Nitro is about trying to find

where it's not possible to go

and then going there.

Childhood never ended

for this lively band of brothers.

They've always had one mission.

To have more fun than

anyone on the planet.


The crew is led by two good old boys

who met when they were 12 years old.

Jeremy Rawle, a hippie lawyer

who gave up his failing law practice

to fight off the symptoms

of midlife crisis.

- Am I done or do I need to do that again?

- You're done, no.

And Godfrey.

The son of a trucker and the poster child

for adult attention deficit disorder.

Under Gregg and Jeremy's

unorthodox direction...

...the crew recorded their adventures in

a series of short movies and even a TVshow.

Through some creative financing,

they made this movie.

Shot in 3D, which cost a butt-load.

They pitched their idea to Hollywood,

but Hollywood crapped its pants.

The studio executives were terrified

that this movie was too dangerous.


The end goal for the Nitro Circus,

the dream they've shared since childhood,

was to perform their stunts live

in front of an audience.

They set their sights on a show

at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas,

but would anyone really

come to see them?

I mean, who are these guys anyway?

I'll tell you who.

First off, there's Travis Pastrana,

the modern day Evel Knievel.

Eighteen time X Games medallist

and five time national champion.

But he can't throw a ball

to save his own life.

He's the all-American wonder kid

and ringleader of the Nitro Circus.

Then there's a 26-year-old man-child.

Yeah! Not in my house, punk! Not today!

Streetbike Tommy.

He is the most adorable member

of the Nitro Circus and the fattest.

He loves cheeseburgers, soda pop,

and hates his everyday occupation

of hanging drywall.

But the Nitro Circus

is more than just fat, hairy men.

Jolene Van Vugt.

She is tough, sexy, and downright full of it.

She is the only one with a vagina.

She keeps the boys in line by not just

competing with them, but showing them up.

Nitro Girl is the real deal.

Not quite as sexy,

but just as ballsy is Erik Roner.

Extreme skier and base jumper,

he has no business on anything

with a motor.

Although he's completely out

of his element with this group,

he's always game to hurl his body

into harm's way.

For a dude with a tramp stamp

he's one bad mofo.

Come on, Special!

No, no, no, no. Come on, hit him, Special.

Come on, come on,

work it low, work it high, come on.

Which brings us to Special Greg,

Travis' cousin.

He's a jack of all trades

and master of none.

Like a cat,

he always seems to land on his feet.

And like a nasty honey badger,

nothing can stop him.

Special, you got him.

Well, all right now.

That's what I'm talkin' about.

At least one member of the crew

has a steady job for now.

Jim DeChamp.

He's Travis' oldest friend.

He has a super long neck

and is somehow able to always cheat death.

He's the current world record holder

for consecutive one-handed claps.

These guys don't give a rip

about what most people think is possible.

They only care about pushing each other

beyond their comfort level,

giving it hell and seeing if they can

come out all right on the other end.

They've been doing

this since childhood.

This is the Nitro Circus.

So we might as well pack seven people

into a school bus

and see how far that puppy can fly.

God. Oh, sh*t!


My twelfth-grade teacher was right,

and I was meant to be a bus driver.

Hands down one of the coolest things

I've ever gotten to do in my life.


Their biggest goal

is to share what they do live,

in front of a packed house

at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

We came from Mexico to see the show.

We are really, really excited.

I've definitely never seen

anything like it before.

Those guys are crazy with talent.

This is the best day of my life.

Rock 'n' roll.

I think the reason that people connect

to Nitro Circus, it's...

I think everyone has a relationship to fear.

I think you can all sort of hearken back

to that moment

where you did something very stupid

and somehow

just skinned under the wire of death.

It's almost like that idea of, like,

if you had the balls, or were willing to do it,

it would be so much fun to get with

all your friends and go do sketchy things,

and give you this amazing adrenalin rush.

It's crazy. Half the sh*t these guys do,

they have to go out of the States

because it's illegal to jump off buildings

the way they're doing it.

It's illegal to do the stuff

they want to do in America.

This sh*t's illegal, guys.

That should be your...

That's when it should be like,

"Uh... This might not be a good idea. "

Travis is like, "No. Let's get on a plane. "


This is one of those stunts that,

this is why we do what we do.

Well, we just got up

to the top of this skyscraper,

This is going to be

a very interesting base jump.

First of its kind ever,

and we're not too sure
