“Jay and Silent Bob Get Old”
“Jay and Silent Bob Get Old” return to the Community Concert Hall
Show featuring Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes is set for Dec. 16
DURANGO, Colo. – Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes are set to return to Durango, bringing their unique “Jay and Silent Bob Get Old” stage show to the Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College, Dec. 16, 2017, 7:30 p.m.
As the duo notes, “Every saga has a middle age, and this is what happens when Jay and Silent Bob get old.” As discussion of sex and drugs, and use of profanity are part of the comedic and sometimes sentimental show, it is not recommended for children.
A New Jersey born and bred actor, Jason Mewes burst onto cinema screens in 1994 playing the grass-smoking, fast-talking, foul-mouthed and over-sexed – but very likeable – Jay in director Kevin Smith’s classic indie comedy Clerks. The off-beat and philosophical drug dealing characters of Jay and Silent Bob, created by Mewes and Smith, were reprised in additional films including, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back and Clerks 2.
The “Jay and Silent Bob Get Old” stage show was originally launched by Smith as a podcast recorded live in front of an audience as a weekly intervention for Mewes (now clean and sober), whose drug addiction had spiraled out of control. The podcasts proved widely popular and the Jay and Silent Bob tour followed.
Smith and Mewes have gone on to perform hundreds of “Get Old” shows across the country, and no two performances are alike. Listen to the podcasts of “Jay and Silent Bob Get Old” at www.smodcast.com, ranked #1 on iTunes comedy podcasts.
