Kevin Smith, who wrote and directed Clerks, Yoga Hosers, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and the series “Comic Book Men” among his many credits, and Jason Mewes, who starred in Clerks and Jay and Silent Bob among numerous collaborations with Smith, will record an episode of their podcast “Jay & Silent Bob Get Old” on Friday, November 20, from 8-9:30 p.m. at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center, in conjunction with the second annual Wizard World Comic Con Reno.
Ranked #1 on Itunes Comedy podcasts, “Jay & Silent Bob Get Old” is a sometimes touching, always hilarious, look at what happens when two people grow up in Hollywood’s gaze. These limited engagements will be recorded as the stories evolve live in front of the audience, and released for free on www.smodcast.com.
Wizard World Comic Con Reno attendees will also be able to take advantage of the extremely rare opportunity to pose for a dual Photo Op with both Smith and Mewes at noon on Saturday, November 21.
