Kevin Smith’s Silent But Deadly will have you laughing for an hour straight
May 11th, 2018 under Kevin Smith, Showtime. [ Comments: none ]


On February 26th, Kevin Smith was doing two shows in Glendale and everything seemed normal until it was not. That was because, after the first show, he suffered a near-fatal heart attack. Thanks to pot, he survived and we get to see the first of those two shows that he did that night. Tonight at 9p, that special Silent, But Deadly is going to debut on Showtime and you don’t want to miss the show that almost killed Silent Bob. Since he didn’t die, I can say if he did, then he would have gone out on a high note.

The hour of stand up starts off with him telling us he let his daughter drive by herself for the first time by before he did the show. That is enough to give any parent a heart attack. Thankfully she got to her location OK, but it was scary for her parents.

Now that Harley Quinn is old enough to be on her own, her mom is ready to travel with her dad again. Their first trip is to Spokane and she leaves her husband to do his shows without her. She turns their room into a spa and he finds that out when he comes back to smoke a joint between shows. She tells him, she does not want to hear his storytime, but he tells her anyway. It was about the last time he smoked pot on a balcony and almost got caught by the police.

When it comes to his wife not watching his live shows, she also does not watch the ones he tapes. She has only seen two episodes of Comic Book Men and refused to let him watch it on his 103 inch TV that they have in their bedroom. How he got that TV is a story you do not want to miss.

When it comes to what his wife sees of him, she hates his maroon underwear. One day, while he is away, he surprises her by telling her he got black ones. The two have this great sexting conversation that ends with a text going to the wrong person. Whoops.

Then he goes from talking about sexting to talking about sex with his wife. She learned something about how long it takes her husband to ejaculate. Way too TMI, but funny as all hell.

Now that we are over the sex talk, he tells a great story about feeding the cast of crew of Supergirl when he was directing an episode. He went to A&W Burgers and ordered 20 his first night. The next night he went back for 40, but it was the third night that was the real kicker. That is when he ordered 70 burgers, 40 fries and a small diet root beer for himself. That caused the guy at the drive-thru to laugh out loud.

Now it is time for him to wrap up the show and he gives a powerful speech that anyone can do what he is doing. Not knowing that a few minutes later, he would be fighting for his life.

After he waves goodbye to the audience, the credits start to roll and he shows us the room where he had the heart attack. Like he said, it was not a pretty place to die and thankfully he did not.

I watch a lot of comedy specials and I shut most of them off within a few minutes. This one is one of the few I cannot wait to watch again. Make sure to check it because I promise you will not be dissapointed.

Kevin Smith says, ‘the heart attack is the best thing that ever happened to me’
April 23rd, 2018 under Kevin Smith. [ Comments: 2 ]


On February 24th, Kevin Smith’s life changed forever after he almost died from a massive heart attack. Now almost 2 months later, he tells Today, “the heart attack is the best thing that ever happened to him.”

Since that fateful night, he has lost 32 pounds and has 18 more to go before he reaches his goal weight. He started out his weight loss with Penn Jillette’s diet of only potatoes, but now he is losing the rest with Weight Watchers. They are so happy to have him that they made him an ambassador. Which is a good thing because he plans to lose another 25 pounds after he reaches a goal. His dick will be so huge by then, I bet he will pose naked for the whole world to see.

Talking about seeing, that comedy special he was taping the night he nearly died is going to air on Showtime May 11th. I have seen Silent But Deadly and it is a laugh riot from beginning until the end. Although at the end he gets really sentimental. I wonder if he knew those words would become even more impactful just a few minutes later.

I want to go back to that night, he told Savannah Guthrie and Craig Melvin that he was very chatty when the doctors were putting the stent in him. Not only that, he was singing the Degrassi: The Next Generation theme song as they were doing it because it is very uplifting. I don’t know why, but that brought me so much joy. Probably, because that tune is pure happiness. Once a Degrassi fan, always a Degrassi fan.

Anyways, glad to see that he is doing so much better. He still has plenty left to give and I cannot wait to see what he gives us.

Kevin Smith says the comedy special he filmed as he had his heart attack will air
March 5th, 2018 under Kevin Smith. [ Comments: none ]


Last Sunday, as Kevin Smith was having a massive heart attack, he was filming a comedy special. Some have wondered if he would still release what they have or put it in a vault somewhere, never to be seen.

Over the weekend, he posted a photo from the standup and gave an update on the special.

“Spending my Saturday night watching the standup special that @comedydynamics was shooting last weekend, right before that ghastly fella with the scythe and dark robe showed up and tapped me on my shoulder. If I had checked out permanently, this would’ve been a great little document to leave in my wake: there’s some legit funny shit in it! I’m watching closely for possible edits (gotta get it down to 75 minutes) but also for possible signs of the impending heart attack. This dopey sumbitch in the video thinks shooting this show is the biggest thing that’s gonna happen to him that night. He has no clue he’s about to go on the adventure of a lifetime to meet the God of Death and tell him “Not today.” (P.S. – A very cool network has already bought the special. I’ll let you know which one it is when the deal’s done.) #KevinSmith #comedy #editing #whatadifferenceadaymakes

Whichever network bought it, needs to do a pre or post special with him talking about his heart attack and what he went through that night. To run it without that, would be a disgrace.

Although, his comedy specials are pretty funny without any subcontext.

Kevin Smith is no longer Silent Bob about his heart attack
February 28th, 2018 under Kevin Smith. [ Comments: none ]


On Sunday night, Kevin Smith suffered a massive heart attack aka the widow maker, but he is alive today to talk about it. Yesterday, he went on Facebook Live to reassure his fans that he is on the mend in his own special way.

He starts off the 18 minute video talking about Sunday night when he started to feel nauseous after his did he first comedy show at the Alex Theater in Glendale. Then he started getting sicker and he had difficulty breathing. When he could not get comfortable, he told Jason Mewes’ wife and his hair person to call a doctor.

Since it was a Sunday, they sent an ambulance to help him out. When the EMTs got there, they wanted to lift his shirt, but he is very modest and did not want him to do it. Eventually they got their way and took him in to the hospital. Throughout all of this he remained calm, mostly because he did not know he had a massive heart attack.

When he got to the hospital, they confirmed he had a heart attack and wanted to give him in a stent in his heart. In order to that they have to go up his groin. If you thought he was humble about his shirt, he is even more humble when it comes to his small dick. He spent a few minutes talking about it. Anyways, eventually he let them shave him, pull down his underwear and do their magic.

Once they cleared his artery and blood was flowing through his body again, he started to feel better. Doctors have prescribed him a week off to recuperate, which means he will ot be able to direct The Goldbergs season finale. But I am sure Adam F Goldberg will invite back next season to direct an episode or more.

He is not taking that moment lightly and started to tear up about he was OK with dying at that moment. He doesn’t want to die, but he is OK with it if it were to happen.

Another thing that is getting him through this all is the well wishes from people who do not normally say nice things about him. When I first moved to LA, I covered the Jay & Silent Bob junket and premiere. I got to know him for a few minutes, and I really liked him. A few weeks afterwards, I saw him in he Von’s by my house, and he walked away from me when he saw me because his friend Ben Affleck was in rehab. I bet he thought I was going to ask him about it. Something I would never do if we were off camera. But he didn’t know that. Anyways, I was hurt, but was never mad at him about it. I was a Kevin Smith fan before that and a bigger one afterwards. Which is why I can’t wait to see the movie he is eventually going to do about his heart attack.

First we will let him heal and then we can enjoy him coming back at life with full force. Knock them alive Kevin.

UPDATE: Kevin Smith is home now and posted this message on Twitter, “Home again, home again, jiggety-jig! Home is where the heart is and the heart is feeling good! It’s actually getting more blood flow and oxygen than it has in a long time. So I am ALERT, to say the least! Thank you for all the kind words, folks – from Vegetarian Kev, Day 2!”

Kevin Smith came close to finding out if Gd looks like Alanis Morissette
February 26th, 2018 under Kevin Smith. [ Comments: none ]


Kevin Smith was doing 2 shows yesterday in Glendale when he noticed he was not feeling well during the 1st show. He did not screw around, so he went to hospital. Good thing he did because if he didn’t, he would not be alive right now. He explained what happened on Instagram:

I was trying to do a killer standup special this evening but I might’ve gone too far. After the first show, I felt kinda nauseous. I threw up a little but it didn’t seem to help. Then I started sweating buckets and my chest felt heavy. Turns out I had a massive heart attack. The Doctor who saved my life at the #glendale hospital told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (also known as “the Widow-Maker” because when it goes, you’re a goner). If I hadn’t canceled the second show to go to the hospital, the Doc said I would’ve died tonight. For now, I’m still above ground! But this is what I learned about myself during this crisis: death was always the thing I was most terrified of in life. When the time came, I never imagined I’d ever be able to die with dignity – I assumed I’d die screaming, like my Dad (who lost his life to a massive heart attack). But even as they cut into my groin to slip a stent into the lethal Widow-Maker, I was filled with a sense of calm. I’ve had a great life: loved by parents who raised me to become the individual I am. I’ve had a weird, wonderful career in all sorts of media, amazing friends, the best wife in the world and an incredible daughter who made me a Dad. But as I stared into the infinite, I realized I was relatively content. Yes, I’d miss life as it moved on without me – and I was bummed we weren’t gonna get to make #jayandsilentbobreboot before I shuffled loose the mortal coil. But generally speaking, I was okay with the end, if this was gonna be it. I’ve gotten to do so many cool things and I’ve had so many adventures – how could I be shitty about finally paying the tab. But the good folks at the Glendale hospital had other plans and the expertise to mend me. Total strangers saved my life tonight (as well as my friends @jordanmonsanto & @iamemilydawn, who called the ambulance). This is all a part of my mythology now and I’m sure I’ll be facing some lifestyle changes (maybe it’s time to go Vegan). But the point of this post is to tell you that I faced my greatest fear tonight… and it wasn’t as bad as I’ve always imagined it’d be. I don’t want my life to end but if it ends, I can’t complain. It was such a gift. #KevinSmith

It sounds like not only will he go through physical lifestyle changes, he went through some mental ones too. I would not be surprised if he does a movie about it and I will be there on opening day. His movies, with all of their humor, have a lot heart. Imagine what he could do with his story. Which he will do because he will be better soon and back touring the country with his unique humor!
