Exclusive Editorial Video: Jeb Corliss’ Near-Fatal BASE Jump

Jeb Corliss is no stranger to Nerve Rush HQ. By age 18, he found solace in a sport that most normal folks deem discomforting — skydiving. Since then, he’s picked up BASE jumping and wingsuit flying. Corliss has jumped off many of the world’s highest and iconic buildings, including Seattle’s Space Needle, Malaysia’s Petronas Twin Towers and Paris’ Eiffel Tower.

HBO shot us an email a couple of weeks ago with an exclusive editorial clip from their show, Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. In an episode that aired this week, Real Sports correspondent Jon Frankel hangs out with Corliss as he attemps a near-fatal jump in Cape Town, South Africa.

It’s all caught on film. Enjoy the clip!

    He was on Conan last night. You can see the clips here, and should be able to post them if you want.
