Steve-O On 'Killer Karaoke': 'I'm The White Trash Ryan Seacrest' (VIDEO)

It's been a while since we've seen Steve-O (of "Jackass" fame) in all his glory.

While he's not engaging in hardcore stunts this time around, he's having the time of his life watching others feel the pain. As host of "Killer Karaoke," a new game show that has contestants try to sing their favorite tunes while horrible things happen to them, Steve-O is front and center for the action. We're hard-pressed to think of anyone more qualified to host a game show of this type. Who else could you envision laughing aloud while people have skunks spray in their face or deal with snakes coiling around their hands?

HuffPost TV Canada caught up with Steve-O and chatted about "Killer Karaoke," how his sobriety is going, and why he's the "white trash Ryan Seacrest."

Watch video interview, above.

"Killer Karaoke" premieres in Canada on January 8 at 10 p.m. EST on Action Channel, and airs on truTV at 9 p.m./8 p.m. CT on Fridays in the US.
