Detailed Christian Jacobs Biography
He began his career working as child actors. Throughout the course of his childhood and into his late teens, Jacobs appeared in numerous productions, most prominently playing the role of Joey Stivic in the short-lived All in the Family spin-off Gloria, but primarily playing bit parts in teen films such as Pretty in Pink and Gleaming the Cube and episodes of sitcoms like Married… with Children and Roseanne, before retiring from acting in the early 1990s, citing a dislike of the competitive nature of the business.
While working on Gleaming the Cube, Jacobs befriended a number of well known and highly influential skateboarders and artists. In 1990, he worked alongside Mark Gonzales and Jason Lee on Blind Skateboards’ Video Days, and as an artist, Jacobs designed board graphics for Tony Hawk’s Birdhouse Skateboards and for Jason Lee and Steve Berra pro models.
In 1994, Jacobs, along with friends Chad Larson and Boyd Terry, formed the Orange County-based band The Aquabats, wherein he acted as lead singer and lyricist under the stage name of The MC Bat Commander Noted for their matching costumes and theatrical stage shows centered around their superhero-themed persona, The Aquabats initially formed as part of the burgeoning Orange County ska scene, though since 2000 have evolved into playing more punk and new wave-influenced rock music.
Though The Aquabats are most recognized for being a cult act, the band experienced brief mainstream commercial success in the late 1990s during the height of the American ska revival, when their second album The Fury of The Aquabats! peaked at number 172 on the Billboard 200, granting the band national exposure on MTV and as part of the 1998 Vans Warped Tour.
During this time, Jacobs was also active in producing skateboarding videos with his friend and creative partner Scott Schultz. In 1999, Jacobs anonymously performed with other members of The Aquabats in the side project The Sandfleas, playing drums under the stage name “Fang”. As of 2018, The Aquabats continue to tour and record and released their fifth studio album Hi-Five Soup! in January 2011 on Fearless Records. On March 3, 2012, The Aquabats! Super Show!, a live-action musical television series starring the band, premiered on cable channel The Hub, with Jacobs serving as co-creator, producer, writer and star.
