On August 2, 1970, Kevin Smith entered the world kicking and screaming and slackers everywhere rejoiced. Precisely 37 years later, Smith took the stage of his local Count Basie theater on his birthday and reminisced about a hodgepodge of topics ranging from Clerks II, his cameo in Live Free or Die Hard and his unforgettable jury duty.
As was the case twice previously (An Evening With Kevin Smith and An Evening with Kevin Smith 2: Evening Harder), the cameras were rolling as laughter permeated the Jersey shore. On October 21, Sold Out: A Threevening with Kevin Smith will debut with a two disc special edition DVD that captured all the laughs from that fateful evening for mass consumption.
In time to take advantage of Smith's next project, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, which bows in theaters on Halloween, Threevening is 222 minutes of Silent Bob doing what he does best, injecting his unique take on life into his day-to-day activities. The set also includes over an hour of uncensored outtakes which will invariably turn out to be the crowning moments of the DVD, if the past is any indication.
The suggested retail price is $19.97.
