CA – Hollywood Babble On LIVE

HBO

Ralph Garman & Kevin Smith appear at the Hollywood Improv on Friday, December 19, 2014 at 10:00 PM for live recording of their podcast HOLLYWOOD BABBLE ON!

Get tickets here…

Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman take a twisted look at showbiz news and bite the Hollywood hand that feeds them. Sometimes, they feel bad and give Hollywood a tetanus shot and some Neosporin, but, even then, they usually just turn around and bite Hollywood’s other hand. They can’t help it. It’s their nature. It’s like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they’re just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.
