Following his sell out solo shows in 2009, Kevin Smith will make a welcome return to UK shores. Having premiered his latest feature, “Red State” starring John Goodman, Michael Parks and Melissa Leo at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011, Kevin has famously written and directed feature films including “Clerks I & II,” “Chasing Amy,” “Dogma,” “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back,” “Jersey Girl,” and “Zack and Miri Make a Porno,” starring Seth Rogen. With three solo DVD's under his belt, Smith has also written for both of the major comic book giants DC and Marvel including the award-winning Daredevil and Spider-Man.
Jason Mewes made his film debut as the fast talking, foul mouthed and over sexed yet loveable "Jay" in the hit film ‘Clerks’. He has since gone on to star as “Jay” in ‘Chasing Amy’, ‘Dogma’, ‘Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back’ and ‘Clerks II’ as well as performing in ‘Scream 3’ alongside long-term friend Smith. In 2010, Jason starred in mobster comedy "The Last Godfather" along with Harvey Keitel and Blake Clark, while his role in ‘Todd and the Book of Pure Evil’ for CTV’s SPACE channel in America earned him a strong cult sci-fi following.
Heading to the UK for the first time ever and reprising their much-loved roles as Jay and Silent Bob, this is what fans everywhere have been waiting for – An opportunity to see their heroes on stage doing what they love, telling stories. This is a very limited tour so make sure you don’t miss out!
