An unlikely European product...conceived in Germany and born in Italy...WeeMan was exported to the USA when he was just three-months out of the birthcanal. On American soil, he soon evolved into a trouble making little bastard and took to pushing a skateboard around the South Bay of Los Angeles. Wee Man first came to public light in 1993, when he was prominently featured in a Big Brother article spotlighting “wee” skateboarders (well, just two really, the other being Pancho Moler).
Soon thereafter he was sponsored by Bitch Skateboards, a fast and furious nightmare from which certain video tapes remain missing to this day, but his real big break came in 1995 when he was painted blue and told to go run around the streets of Hollywood for Shit, the first Big Brother skateboard video(the box cover of which he was subsequently featured).
Wee Man became a staple ingredient of the Big Brother world and routinely popped in and out of the magazine over the next several years (as a “french benefit” of his involvement with the staff, he is one of the few people on the faceof the earth who can honestly say they have gone to Disneyland with the band Slayer and lived in the same house with Rick Kosick).
After years of being badgered by the mag’s former art director Jeff Tremaine, Wee Man finally submitted to skating around in a Oompa Loompa costume
for the jackass pilot in early 2000, an act that ultimately sealed his celebrity fate and added a trademark to his name.
A little person for all ridiculous occasions, Wee Man has the luxury of ideas being specifically written for him that are tailored to his unique size and talents. This can be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, he doesn’t have to do shit other than just show up and shoot; on the other, this can mean hopping out of a van and immediately being shoved into a bullring with a pint-sized matador outfit.
In addition to his appearances on jackass, Wee Man collaborated on a home video project entitled American Misfits, survived several tours of duty with Steve-O on the stage show circuit, briefly hosted 54321 on Fox, and appeared alongside Snoop Dogg in a T-Mobile commercial campaign, which is almost as good as going to Disneyland with Slayer but not quite. He also hitched a few rides with the Wildboyz, where he drank cow blood in Kenya and went deep behind-the-transgender-scenes in Thailand.
Wee Man’s other credits include TV: The Movie, The Grind, Death to the Supermodels, and the storybook narration for The Man Who Souled the World, a documentary on Steve Rocco and his formerly evil skateboard empire, WorldIndustries. Also "The Same" a silent film.
