How you can join Kevin Smith at the NJ premiere of ‘Clerks III’
He even starred in the movie as his famous character “Silent Bob” alongside Jason Mewes, as the dynamic duo “Jay and Silent Bob”.
Now here we are, 16 years later, and we’re about to be brought back to where it all started with Dante and Randall at the Quick Stop, which they can assure you, they’re open!
Kevin Smith was born in Red Bank and raised in Highlands and he’s coming back to his roots for the “Clerks III: The Convenience Tour” event happening at the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank on September 4.
So what exactly does that mean? You’ll get to watch the new “Clerks III” movie with Kevin Smith in attendance and you’ll get to sit and maybe even chat with him during the post-show Q&A.
Being a fan of Kevin Smith’s movies (“Mallrats” all the way!), this is a really big deal.
Kevin Smith is not your ordinary Hollywood guy. I’ve met him on multiple occasions and you almost forget how famous he actually is. That is how genuine, humble, and authentic he is.
If you have the opportunity to attend this show, I highly recommend it.
Tickets go on sale Friday, July 8 at 10 a.m. and they range in price starting at $30. There is a limit to 4 tickets per mailing address according to The Baise.
If you can’t make the Red Bank show, Smith will also be making his way to the Keswick Theatre in Glenside, PA on Wednesday, September 7, and also the Beacon Theatre in New York City on Friday, September 9.
“Clerks III” was primarily filmed in Monmouth County shortly after Kevin Smith brought his Mooby’s pop-up restaurant to Red Bank.
If you’re unfamiliar with Mooby’s, it’s a fictional fast-food restaurant that is a recurring feature in Kevin Smith’s movies.
You don’t need to be a fan of Kevin Smith to appreciate his style of comedic films.
“Clerks III” is one we’ve all been waiting for. You can watch the trailer here:
