Kevin Smith Will Burn in Hell: EPIX Original Comedy Event, Feb. 11th
Kevin Smith, a treasure (a Jersey guy) to old and young fans alike. (almost 2 million Twitter followers and 691,131 FB followers and counting) writer, director, raconteur, author, stand-up comedian, comic book creator, SModcaster, podcaster and blogger, is back on EPIX* showcasing his own self-immolating wit that we love to laugh to as he torches he soul and ''BURNS IN HELL." Get ready to be engulfed in Kevin's crash and burn in a new original event, his one-man show, premiering on EPIX on February 11th. See show clips-here (clean and uncensored).
You want to hear the best part? If you are one of the old timers who faded your old Clerks or Chasing Amy videos on 50 replays 'til you splurged for the DVDs and BlueRays, or you're a newer fan picked up with Kevin's later releases after Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back like Red State (2011) or maybe you post threads on his blog or adore his comic books and visit his New Jersey store, or you just dig his stand-up comedy routines, you will be thrilled to hear that EPIX has something special for Kevin Smith fans. It's a demand preview beginning February. You will get an early screening of his entire special, regardless of whether you are a subscriber or not. That's right! Even non-subscribers will be able to catch this preview of the entire special. The February 3rd special will be shown via participating affiliated television providers’ EPIX On Demand service and EPIX apps on Xbox 360 and Roku. And you can stream it at EpixHD.com and the “TV Everywhere” portals of affiliated providers.
Recorded live at the Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas, the special features Smith's red hot damning Q&A session about Red State and his foibles and fables in the wake of his Sundance Film Festival presentation about the film and his new distribution model. (see blog for speech) The fact that he twits himself over igniting Sundance's movie blogger community and wits about being shadowed by an outraged religious family (there are interesting characterizations of certain Christian stereotypes in the film) indicates he will stop at nothing to be wack and make us laugh in the process.
Remember when Smith was thrown off a Southwest Air flight for being too fat! Well, a year later he had lost weight, probably having to get smaller sized hockey shirts, his iconic look. He must own a few hundred of them. But it was a good thing he was kicked off that plane because his portly condition sparked his creative genius and we got to enjoy "Too Fat for Forty." Or is it possible that Smith was managing the "getting kicked off the plane" PR event to draw attention to his forthcoming show which would be some months in advance? It's possible; but will Kevin tells us for real? In any case, "Too Fat for Forty" was Smith's last special for EPIX which premiered October 2010, 8 months after his fat humiliation. By then Kevin was losing weight. And he looks thinner and appears to be successfully keeping it off.Continued on the next page
