Jackass star Bam Margera celebrated his 32nd birthday at Studio 54 in MGM Grand on Friday night, and the prankster birthday boy was joined by his parents Phil and April Margera. Margera arrived on the red carpet in a leather jacket, black sneakers and a scarf and channeled his inner rock star with bracelets, necklaces and rings. He posed playfully with his parents, making funny faces and occasionally pushing Dad out of the shot.

As Margera entered the nightclub, Lil Wayne’s “John” featuring Rick Ross was playing, pumping up the TV star, and he happily posed for photographs and signed autographs for fans, including writing his John Hancock on one fan’s bare stomach.

Margera greeted partygoers from Studio 54’s stage and handed over the mic to Mom, who shouted, “We’re here to celebrate Bam’s birthday!” as the crowd cheered. She continued to fire up the revelers, and as any loving mother would, she gleefully said, “Everyone wish Bam a Happy Birthday! Yay, Bam!”

The trio then made their way to their VIP table overlooking the nightclub, including the dance floor with partygoers moving to the sounds of DJ Crooked. Studio 54 delivered a two-tier birthday cake to Margera decorated with an edible skateboard and Margera’s signature heartagram symbol.

“Of course Phil wants cake,” said the jokester as he pushed his dad’s face close into the cake to take the first bite, minus plate and fork. Phil gave a thumbs-up approval, and all three blew out the candles together. Margera passed out plates to nearby guests and began slicing his own cake before finally allowing the server to take over. Margera and his parents mingled with friends and fans the rest of the night.

Actress Meagan Good also was in attendance at Studio 54 in black kitten ears, knee-high boots and a Michael Kors cross-body purse and was spotted dancing with friends. Happy Birthday to Margera, and thanks to Steven Lawton for his Vegas DeLuxe photo gallery.
