Though he’s primarily— and rightfully— known for cult classics like Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma, there’s much more to Kevin Smith than directing quirky indie comedies. On top of his Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash comic book store in his hometown of Red Bank, NJ, the 44-year-old has a strong following on Twitter. His often-hilarious feed has allowed fans to see a different side of the director, which is showcased on the multiple podcasts he co-hosts. When he and longtime collaborator Jason Mewes join forces in Brea as their iconic Jay and Silent Bob characters, fans will have the chance to ask questions and get the true behind-the-scenes stories that may not have made the special edition releases of those movies. Same goes for the followup Q&A with the director, who won’t be afraid to leave any question unanswered.
