Who is Steven Ray Tickle?
Born Steven Ray Tickle – or just ‘Tickle’ – was born on 30th November 1976, in Virginia, USA, now aged 41 years old. Tickle, was thrown into the limelight by ‘Moonshiners’ in 2013, an American docudrama TV show featured on the Discovery Channel. The show is about people involved in the manufacture of illicit drink, and in which a man named Tim Smith is the ‘most wanted moonshiner’, while Tickle serves as his partner in crime.
The success of this show and his success too, brought on board the sequel, ‘Tickle’ also featured on Discovery Channel. Funnily enough, this was not Tickle’s first career, or choice. Besides this, Steven Tickle is a classified carpenter, recognized for building the popular Clyde’s Restaurant located in the Washington Metropolitan Area. Carpentry is a skill he enjoyed and traded in long before his TV career began.
Steven Ray Tickle’s Political Ambitions
Buoyed by the success and fame he has gathered through the TV Series, Tickle at one point nursed political ambitions, with his eyes set for the US Congress. In 2015 he considered running against U.S Representative Robert Hurt in south Virginia, wanting to be amongst the law makers, but this was somehow a long shot and out of reach for him, some kind of wild dream, which never came to pass, partly because of his run-in with the law.
