NM – Hollywood Babble On

Ralph Garman and Kevin Smith babble on at the Allen Theatre on Wednesday August 24, 2011 at 7:30pm!

Ralph’s the guy you never listen to on morning radio. Kevin’s the guy who makes movies you never go see. And yet every week, they have the balls to make fun of their TinselTown betters. Their show may be the funniest thing you see at CityWalk… unless you spot Kev steering with his knees because he’s eating two Cinnabons while pulling out of the valet parking lot.
