Kevin Smith

Saturday evening, Janet and I went to see Kevin Smith in Hartford.  Sharron had decided she wasn’t too interested in seeing him, so Janet and I went.  I’d bought the tickets a few months ago and got pretty good seats.  I think we were in row J, right in the middle, so we could see him very clearly.  It was a great show.  For those not in the know, he has no prepared material and what he talks about is driven completely off of audience questions.  This apparently works very well.  :-)

The show lasted 3 hours, from 7:45 until 10:45.  Really, I think we all could have stood to have it last even longer.  It was great.  We laughed a lot.  Kevin does appear to suffer from some low self esteem as he talked about his small penis quite a bit, but he sure can talk about his life and experiences very well.

My only real complaint was that the show lagged in the middle.  This was not Kevin’s fault in the slightest.  Instead, it was the audience’s fault.  The people asking the questions slowly degenerated into people asking him for his autograph, or for a hug, or a handshake, or a lip imprint, etc.  It got annoying pretty fast.  2 people even asked if they could come up on stage and just hang out with him…and he said yes.  That’s pretty gracious of him, but come ON people!

At the end of the night, it was definitely $45 (per ticket) well spent and both Janet and I agreed that we’d be willing to go again.  Good show!  :-)

  • Dude, seriously, if you haven’t yet, go rent “An Evening with Kevin Smith” immediately. It’s the same kinda thing, but it’s a compilation of the best Q-and-A from several appearances and includes his hilarious story about how he was almost involved in making a Superman movie. Easily one of the funniest stories I’ve ever heard.

  • Don’t worry Scott, I’ve seen the first Evening with Kevin Smith. Haven’t seen 2 or 3 yet as I’ve been waiting until after I saw him live. :-)

  • dude, I love that they got to go sit on stage with him! so cool! I had a blast, thank you for lettin me go with you :)
