WA – Hollywood Babble On LIVE

Ralph Garman & Kevin Smith appear at the Tacoma Comedy Club on Friday, January 12, 2018 at 7:30 PM and 10:30 PM for two shows of their podcast HOLLYWOOD BABBLE ON!

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.

In a fantastical post-industrial desert, fifteen-year-old Boetema suddenly discovers she has the ability to astrally project to other planets while she sleeps. When she accidentally gets a young man gravely hurt on a planet light-years away, she has to find a way to project back to save him. As Boetema visits amazing planets and encounters vibrant cultures, she must confront her mistakes and learn to trust in her younger brother Inotu—despite his naivety and his uncanny proclivity for attracting trouble—as she navigates her newfound abilities.
