Recently Stephen and I were lamenting the fact that Kevin Smith’s next stop in Kansas City falls on the same day as the university’s graduation weekend. Now that the trailer for Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie has been released I’m thinking I’ll just fail the semester so I can make it the showing in May. NSFW trailer following the jump.
Filmmaker Kevin Smith takes center stage at the illustrious Carnegie Hall Wednesday, June 17th where he’ll “perform” his unique, uncensored brand of storytelling and interact with an audience often as familiar with his unusual life as he is. Smith, best known for writing and directing such feature films as “Clerks,” “Dogma” and most recently “Zack and Miri Make a Porno,” regularly appears live at major venues across the country and in Canada, but is appearing for the first time at the venerated New York City venue.
Says Smith, “This country must truly be in a desperate financial crisis. How else to explain Carnegie Hall allowing someone with so little talent onto their hallowed stage.”
Veteran producers David J. Foster and Jared Geller are producing.
Appearing for one night only, Smith’s colorful and unchecked stage “performance,” entitled Silent Bob Speaks: An Evening with Kevin Smith, will provide an up close and personal look into the irreverent mind of the talented filmmaker and pop culture connoisseur. During his three hour show Smith will engage in an unreserved audience Q&A, a feature of his appearances which have gained cult status among his fans.
