LaBeouf began performing stand-up at comedy clubs when he was 10 years old. He found an agent through the Yellow Pages and pretended to be his own manager on the initial phone call.

She once walked the red carpet wearing a paper bag over her face that was emblazoned with the words “I’m Not Famous Anymore.” No one was quite sure what his intentions were. Some have speculated that it is part of a piece of performance art. As it turns out, these actions were a piece of performance art that LaBeouf created with British artist and author Luke Turner and Finnish artist Nastja Sade Ronkko as a meditation on celebrity and vulnerability. Since then, LaBeouf, Ronkko and Turner have engaged in high-profile performance art projects, including #IAMSORRY (2014), #ALLMYMOVIES (2015), #TOUCHMYSOUL (2015), #TAKEMEANYWHERE (2016) and HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US ( 2017). -present).

In late 2013, Shia was accused of plagiarism for his short film “Howard Cantour.com”, which he released on the Internet.

Shia took the film offline and claimed he had no intention of copying Clowes. He insisted he was “inspired” by it and “got lost in the creative process”.
Since the discovery of the plagiarism of Clowe’s work, LaBeouf’s other work has come under scrutiny. Romanele grafice ale lui LaBeouf, „Let’s Fucking Party” și „Stale N Mate”, au fost plagiate din filmul „The Little Girl and the Tigarette” de Benoit Duteurtre și, respectiv, „Assault” al lui Charles Bukowski.
LaBeouf spoke about plagiarism allegations against him in early 2014. He then took to Twitter to describe his next project, Daniel Boring, which is a clear reference to David Boring, another comic created by Clowes. Additionally, the story description was also completely plagiarized from Clowes. LaBoeuf received a cease and desist letter from Clowes’ attorneys. Shia posted it on Twitter.
