A Tribute to Ryan Dunn was a documentary aired in late 2011 looking back on the life of Ryan Dunn. The show contained interviews from family and friends and never before seen footage of Ryan.


The tribute was produced by close friends of Dunn; Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze and Derek Freda. [1] Johnny Knoxville said that they wanted to do the show themselves and get it right, suggesting that if they didn't other networks wouldn't do him justice.


The 40 minute long documentary worked it's way through Ryan Dunn's life chronologically. The show featured interviews from Ryan's family including his parents and sister. The tribute also had interviews with fellow Jackass cast members; Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Ehren McGhehey, Chris Pontius, Jason Acuña, Dave England along with other work-mates; Jeff Tremaine, Spike Jonze and Dimitry Elyashkevich.

The tone of the documentary was very down to earth. The guests featured were honest and heartfelt. Although a celebration of Ryan, the show didn't shy away from the fact that he had his flaws.


The tribute was well received by numerous online sources, and helped many fans come to terms with Ryan's death. As of April 2012, the show has a rating of 8.4 out of 10 on Documentary Heaven.[2]
