KEVIN SMITH (2015)

Kevin Smith, the actor, writer and director of the cult trilogy of New Jersey films that began with 1994’s Clerks, has announced an Australian tour in September, accompanied by co-star JasonMewes.

Australian fans will have the opportunity to see their slacker heroes on stage doing what they love best: telling stories and making fun of each other, followed by a Q&A session with Smith.  The tour starts at Sydney’s State Theatre on Friday 18 September, then on to Brisbane for two shows; an early and a late performance on Saturday 19 September, both at The Tivoli Theatre, then Melbourne’s Palais Theatre on Monday 21 September, the Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide on Wednesday 23 September and finishing up in Perth on Saturday 26 September at the Riverside Theatre, PCEC.

Jay and Silent Bob, Mewes and Smith’s cult alter-egos, quickly became much-loved icons after the release of Clerks, winner of the Filmmakers Trophy at the 1994 Sundance Film Festival and the Prix de la Jeunesse Award at Cannes Film Festival the same year.   Their characters have gone on to pop up in MallratsChasing AmyDogmaJay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Clerks 2, all of which were written and directed by Smith.

Well known for his long and often hilarious talks and Q&A sessions, Smith is also a celebrated writer for both the DC & Marvel Comics empires, penning comics on legendary characters including Batman, Daredevil, Spider-Man and Green Arrow.

He can also be heard daily at Smodcast.com, his vast network of podcasts.

Smith’s other films include Jersey Girl (2004) starring Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler, Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008), and more recently the horror movies Red State (2011) and Tusk (2014), which had its premiere at last year’s Toronto Film Festival (“Smith has delivered a left-field surprise that ranks among his best work.” – Variety).

He is currently working on Mallbrats, a sequel to Mallrats, due for release in 2017.

An Evening withKevin Smith is a chance to get up close and personal with one of the most distinctive voices in US independent filmmaking and comedy.
