On Friday night, December 16, 7 p.m. the hilarious duo Jay & Silent Bob perform live in Telluride.

Film icons Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes made history and fans all over the world with the characters Jay and Silent Bob from the movies “Clerks,” “Mallrats,” “Chasing Amy,” “Dogma,” “Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back,” and Clerks 2.” Now you can see them live recording their comedy podcast Jay & Silent Bob Get Old. This is what fans everywhere have been waiting for, an opportunity to see their comedic heroes on stage, doing what they love, telling stories.

Cinema icon Jason Mewes is best known as the potty-mouthed vocal half of Jay and Silent Bob, the on- screen comedic duo who first appeared in Kevin Smith’s seminal 1994 indie film “Clerks.” Mewes would reprise the character five more times on the big screen from 1995 to 2006, becoming a sort of James Bond of mid-90s lo- budget film, a fast-talking, foul-mouthed, over-sexed, but ultimately harmless, likable guy.

At 10 p.m. Smith takes the stage solo for a second round of storytelling and comedy.

A writer, comedian, podcaster, and film director, Smith has written and directed numerous films, including “Clerks,” “Chasing Amy,” “Dogma,” “Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back,” “Red State & Tusk.”

Smith is the creator of AMC’s “Comic Book Men.” He authored “Silent Bob Speaks,” “Shootin’ the Sh*t with Kevin Smith,” “My Boring-Ass Life” and most recently “Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good.”

An Evening with Kevin Smith is a chance to get up close and personal with the man who brought the world these films.


The SHOW Bar will open at 6 p.m.

*Does not include $4 ticketing fee.
