Tonight at 10p on TBS’s King of the Nerds, Jason Mewes gets to combine two of his greatest loves comic books and Revenge of the Nerds. He is going to be a guest judge on the show and will help to decide the winning team should be. The contestants are going to debate over their comic book love. Something that is near and dear to him and Kevin Smith who is also a judge on the show. And before he hung out with that Kevin, he was hanging with another Kevin watching Revenge of the Nerds all the time. So much so the two of them learned all the words to the rap song at the end of the first movie. Now when it comes to the Kevin that we know, Mewes told me last week during an interview that Smith took him to his first comic book show in NY when they were teenagers and they’ve been hanging out ever since. So it is perfect that they are on tonight’s episode together.
When I was talking to Mewes and he told me what a big fan of the movie he is, I had to know which was his favorite Nerd in it. Without hesitation he said Booger, thus he really enjoyed working with Curtis Armstrong on the show. So while the contestants went all fan boy over him, he was going all fan boy over Booger!
And what about those contestants. When I asked him if they knew more than him when it came to comic book knowledge. He wouldn’t say that they know more about comic books than Smith and him, but he would say “They had more passion behind each debate. When they were debating about one thing or the next. They really knew what they were talking about.” We will have to tune in to watch their debates that are much different than the average person’s who would be arguing with their friends which superhero they would rather have sex with. Not saying the contestants on the show don’t do that, but they won’t be doing that tonight on the nerdiest competition show on television.
So besides doing King of the Nerds, he has a full plate on his hands. He is hosting AXS Live an hour long live pop culture show on AXS TV on Mondays and Tuesdays. He is also working on a Jay and Silent Bob Groovy Cartoon Movie. The 70 minute animated film that he produced and was written by Kevin Smith will hopefully be out in April and they are planning on touring with it. You can check out his YouTube channel SeesMod. You can listen to his Smodcast with Kevin Smith and see them on tour. And if that is not enough, he told me he would love to a storyarc on either ABC’s Revenge (a show he loves) and/or The CW’s Arrow. There has to be a way to make this happen.
But before that happens make sure to watch Jason Mewes tonight at 10p on TBS’s King of the Nerds.
