AbJackass (2012) was a twenty-five minute performance and stand-up comedy routine that highlighted links between the history of performance art and stunts by the members of Jackass. Using Julia Kristeva's writings on abjection as original research sources, one-liner jokes and physical comedy routines were then developed to mimic and pay homage to celebrated works of performance in the visual arts and some of the more well-known skits from Jackass.
