    Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie Tour Kicks off on April 20, 2013

    Jay and Silent Bob are back! Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes are hitting the road with their new animated film, JAY & SILENT BOB’S SUPER GROOVY CARTOON MOVIE – which blazes across America in a series of one-night-only shows starting April 20, 2013 in Atlanta at the Center Stage Theater. The legendary best buds from Jersey are back to dispense weed and wisdom in cartoon form and audiences will have the opportunity to watch the new movie and stick around for a rip-roaring Q&A afterwards. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 1, 2013.

    Produced by Mewes and directed by first-time filmmaker Steve Stark, JAY & SILENT BOB’S SUPER GROOVY CARTOON MOVIE features the voice talents of Eliza Dushku, Tara Strong, Ralph Garman, Neil Gaiman, Ben Gleib, Jon Lovitz, and the podcast stars of Smith’s SModcast Network! When they can no longer stomach the ever-growing weed of suburban crime, Jay & Silent Bob take on the mantles of costumed avengers Bluntman & Chronic, smashing super-villains they accidentally create! Can the Doobage Duo save their beloved Jersey ‘burbs from their new arch enemies, the League of Shitters? While clearly not the comic book movie the world wants, GROOVY MOVIE is the comic book movie the world needs!

    “This is what can happen when you put the plug in the jug, kids!” said screenwriter and SModCo head honcho Kevin Smith of Producer (and friend of Bill W.) Jason Mewes. “I’m crazy proud of Jay for turning the soul-crushing bummer that is sobriety into productivity, making something as funny and fun as GROOVY MOVIE in the process!”

    “As an actor, it was awesome to play Jay again,” said producer and voice talent Jason Mewes. “But as a producer, I sweated every nickel because I wanted to keep the budget low… And dirty.”

    The budget for GROOVY MOVIE: $69,000!

    “That budget figure not only makes us proud, it makes us giggle,” Smith went on to say . “We live in an age of wonder where you can make a whole cartoon movie for well under a hundred grand! And the super hero who made miracles happen for next to nothing in cost was our genius director, Canadian animator Steve Stark!”

    “A few years back, Steve was a Jay & Silent Bob fan who Tweeted us a YouTube cartoon he made from an episode of SModcast,” Mewes explains. “Now the guy’s directed an entire Jay & Silent Bob cartoon movie! And since we’re using Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and YouTube to sell tour tickets, it’s like the whole cartoon’s made possible by the power of social media! SNOOTCH!”

    Forgoing a standard theatrical release, SModcast Pictures (a division of SModCo) will repeat the city-by-city, one-night-only structure of their groundbreaking RED STATE USA Tour and cap each Groovy Movie screening with a performance of their Jay and Silent Bob Get Old podcast – the wildly popular live show which has sold out tours across the US, Canada, the UK and Australia. All 103 live shows recorded to date are available for download at SModcast.com and iTunes. Mewes has also produced home video versions of the show entitled, Jay and Silent Bob Get Old: Teabagging in the UK, Jay and Silent Bob Get Irish: The Swearing o’the Green, and Jay and Silent Bob Go Down Under.

    Complete ticket and tour information is available at the website and the trailer can be seen here. “Like” Jay and Silent Bob on Facebook.

    About Jason Mewes (Jay)

    Jason Mewes (@JayMewes) is the Creative Producer at SModCo Internet Radio (SIR), which launched in May 2011, as well as the Creative Producer at SModCo Internet TV (SIT), which launched in May 2012 and lives online as a YouTube channel. SModco produces Mewes’ weekly video blog called, Mewes News, which was also the first SIT video to air. Best known as the vocal half of the on-screen comedic duo, Jay and Silent Bob, Mewes has reprised his role as the celebrated character, “Jay,” in a number of films. With cult-fans following his controversial antics, Mewes has captured audiences with rebellious banter against his unspoken other half and longtime friend, Kevin Smith (Silent Bob). Since the beginning of the duo’s offbeat work together, Mewes and Smith have continued to build on their beloved character driven roles from the Jay and Silent Bob series. Most recently, Mewes wrapped Spoilers, alongside Smith, an original online series for Hulu and in 2011, he co-hosted the TV series, Cinema Enema, which reviews film in an off-kilter way. As an actor, Mewes can be seen in a starring role in the Wunderkind Pictures feature, Noobz, as well as The Last Godfather, Money Shot, K-11, and Rock Jocks. Mewes’ most noted film credits include: Smith’s award-winning Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Clerks II, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. This string of cult hits all celebrated and continued Mewes’ infamous role as “Jay,” a bawdy, fast talking, and over sexed but very likable guy. For his successful and brow-raising portrayal, MTV honored him with 2007’s Dirtiest Mouth Award.

    Kevin Smith will be the first to admit that he’s an unlikely source for life advice. After all, he’s that overweight guy who did that movie Clerks a million years ago. But take a second look at Kevin Smith: he’s spent the past 15 years doing whatever he wants and getting paid for it. And he has a hot wife, too.  In his new book TOUGH SH*T: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good, nothing is off limits. It’s a memoir that unlocks his unlikely path to success – Smith tells stories of how he fell in love with movies as a child and watched George Carlin with his dad, of his first time taking a pilgrimage to the Angelika in big, scary New York with his movie-buff buddy, and how after a successful run of 10 movies he decided the best thing he could do for his career would be to blow the whole thing up. And don’t think that Kevin Smith, (the man who made bromance movies before “bromance” was even a word) doesn’t get dirty. This isn’t a book of feel-good stories. It’s a book of Tough Sh*t. He talks about the critics who’ve savaged his films and the actors and executives who’ve made him hate what he loves. He discusses his fallout out with Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Company and his feuds with Bruce Willis. He examines his struggles with weight, the infamous Southwest Airlines incident, and why he decided to start smoking pot at the age of 38.  But he also tells you the good stuff you get if you suffer through the Tough Sh*t. Like his amazing wife Jen, who suffers through marriage to a sex-obsessed fatty. And working with his idol George Carlin. And one of the biggest thrills of his life: when he got to watch a movie he made– an homage to Quentin Tarantino – with Quentin Tarantino.  And sprinkled throughout, Kevin offers his readers gems of life advice that have helped him along the way: like what he learned from his hero Wayne Gretzky – ““Don’t go where the puck’s been; go where it’s gonna be,” from the very act of conception – “You’re a big, fat bucket of win when you begin this crapshoot life.”—and from Ferris Bueller: “You can never go too far. But if you’re gonna get busted, don’t let it be by a guy like that.”Fanboys, film-buffs, stoners, fatties, skinnies, Smodcasters and anyone who wants to know how to get away with getting paid for doing what they love will find something to like in this book. And if you don’t like what he has to say, Kevin’s response is a no-brainer: TOUGH SH*T.
