SKATE: Tony Hawk's Daily Life Stunt Double on Comedy Bang! Bang!

Tony Hawk's Daily Life Stunt Double on Comedy Bang! Bang! - Airs Thursday, June 26 at 10:30 PM ET/PT on IFC
Everyday situations can be difficult for Tony Hawk.

Press Release from IFC

Tony Hawk is the most famous pro skater in the country. He can ollie, backflip, McTwist, mongo foot and nosegrind in a goofy foot stance with the best of them. But just because he can do every trick in the book — and invent new ones to boot — doesn’t mean that he knows how to do everything when he’s not on a skateboard. But no one ever need to know that, because Tony Hawk is basically the Tony Hawk of secretly using a professional stunt double.

We are shocked to find out that Tony Hawk, one of the world's most famous skateboarders, uses a stunt double on a daily basis! But it's not for what you think, as pedestrian tasks such as walking and talking are his biggest challenges.

See the full Comedy Bang! Bang! episode on Thursday, June 26 at 10:30pm ET/PT on IFC.

Scott Aukerman and Reggie Watts are back for an all-new 20 episode third season of the unconventionally entertaining scripted late night talk show, Comedy Bang! Bang!  Guest stars this season include, Allison Brie and Josh Groban.
