Kevin Smith loves to talk, just ask Southwest Airlines. Despite becoming best known as the character Silent Bob, Smith has spent much of the recent years doing live shows with audience question and answer and much story telling.
Smith, also well known as the director of Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Mallrats to name a few, will be at the Coolidge Corner Theatre on March 22 for an exclusive Boston appearance in support of his new book “TOUGH SH*T: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good” (Gotham Books, March 20, 2012, available in Hardcover, eBook and Penguin Audio).
Tickets are $28 and include a signed copy of the book.
As Coolidge describes the book: “In it nothing is off limits, it’s a memoir that unlocks his unlikely path to success.
“This isn’t a book of feel-good stories. It’s a book of Tough Sh*t. He talks about the critics who’ve savaged his films and the actors and executives who’ve made him hate what he loves. He discusses his fallout out with Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Company and his feuds with Bruce Willis. He examines his struggles with weight, the infamous Southwest Airlines incident, and why he decided to start smoking pot at the age of 38. But he also tells you the good stuff you get if you suffer through the Tough Sh*t, like his amazing wife Jen, who suffers through marriage to a sex-obsessed fatty.”
The event is a must attend for any Smith fan. At the event he will discuss the book and answer questions from the audience.
All tickets: $28, ticket price includes a signed copy of the book to be picked up upon arrival at the theatre.
