Kevin Smith is a talker. The rebel filmmaker’s built up a podcast empire, and two of his premier shows pop up in downtown Phoenix in their live incarnations on Saturday, June 7.
The master of the View Askewniverse started the Jay & Silent Bob Get Old podcast as a laidback weekly intervention to keep his best friend Jason Mewes, most well-known as mischievous stoner Jay in Smith’s films, on the wagon. Now tallying 1400-plus days of sobriety, Mewes shares tales of his drug-hazed past, sex romps, and other uncensored high-jinks. Meanwhile, Edumacation sees former Tonight Show with Jay Leno staffer Andy McElfresh attempting to increase Smith’s intellect with a smattering of surprising facts.
Stand Up Live, 50 West Jefferson Street in Phoenix, hosts the Jay & Silent Bob Get Old live podcast recording at 7 p.m. and the Kevin Smith Present Edumacation with Andy McElfresh at 10 p.m. Admission for each show is $40. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit www.standuplive.com.
