Kevin Smith appears at the Coolidge Corner Theatre on Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 7:00pm!
Join the Coolidge in welcoming Kevin Smith (director of Clerks and Mallrats, writer of Silent Bob Speaks and The Bionic Man) for an exclusive Boston appearance in support of his hilarious new book TOUGH SH*T: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good (Gotham Books, March 20, 2012, available in Hardcover, eBook and Penguin Audio). In it nothing is off limits, it’s a memoir that unlocks his unlikely path to success. For this special evening Kevin will discuss the book and answer questions from the audience.
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.
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.
All tickets: $28, ticket price includes a signed copy of the book to be picked up upon arrival at the theatre.

Kevin Smith speaks live at The Pabst Theater on Sunday March 25, 2012 at 7:30 PM.

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.

Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith bring their podcast show to the Hard Rock Cafe (6050 Universal Blvd, Orlando, FL 32819) for one night only, March 30th at 8pm. Every saga has a middle-age this is what happens when Jay & Silent Bob Get Old.
Kevin Smith has chosen The Wilbur to showcase his latest project, indie flick ‘Red State’ on March 6th. This is looking to be one of Smith’s most controversial films to date with its politically charged premise.
Kevin Smith and The Harvey Boys are independently distributing this film and have issued this statement:
“We believe the state of film marketing has become ridiculously expensive and exclusionary to the average filmmaker longing simply to tell their story. When the costs of marketing and releasing a movie are four times that film’s budget, it’s apparent the traditional distribution mechanism is woefully out of touch with not only the current global economy, but also the age of social media.
Therefore, The Harvey Boys will not spend a dime on old world media buys (such as TV/Print/Outdoor) as we self-distribute our film, Red State, in an admittedly unconventional, yet extremely cost effective, word of mouth/viral campaign.”
Kevin Smith will be in attendance at this performance and will do a Q&A following the showing.

Collecting the finest moments of Smith’s â€˜SModcast’ conversations with Scott Mosier, this lewd, crude and hilariously rude book exposes the humorous highs and lows of Kevin Smith’s compulsive and pop-cultural verbal commentary. Discover the genesis of Stalin’s Monkey Soldier army, the horrifying tale of Kevin vs. Steak Tartare, how to make bukkake eggs, the lengths to which Jason Mewes would go for a free comic, and how Kevin was once willing to let Alanis Morissette get muggedâ€¦ Silent Bob has a whole lot more to say – and it’s well worth the listen!
Kevin Smith sold his comic book collection to fund Clerks – and bought them straight back after the film became a hit. He was the producer of the Oscar-winning Good Will Hunting and has written and directed Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Jersey Girl, Clerks II and Zack and Miri Make A Porno. He’s also both author and comics writer. Shootin’ the Sh*t follows the enormous success of his New York Times bestseller My Boring-Ass Life, also published by Titan Books.
Kevin Smith will only be signing Shootin The Sh*t. This event will be popular – limits may be applied on the number of items signed and the number of people at the event. Please refer to this page for further updates before you come to the store.
