Cinema icon Jason Mewes is best known as the potty-mouthed vocal half of Jay and Silent Bob, the on- screen comedic duo who first appeared in Kevin Smith’s seminal 1994 indie film Clerks. Mewes would reprise the character five more times on the big screen from 1995 to 2006, becoming a sort of James Bond of mid-90’s low budget film—a fast talking, foul-mouthed, over-sexed but ultimately harmless and likable guy. Bugs Bunny with a boner.
When not making movies, Mewes is buried balls-deep in new media as co-owner of SModCo, the multi- headed multi-media monster that started with SModcast. Jason also takes active roles behind and in front of the camera alongside Smith in Spoilers for Hulu and the Comedy Network, and Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie.
But it’s in the insanely popular award-winning podcast Jay & Silent Bob Get Old where Mewes truly shines. For nearly two years, in what’s been described as “Lake Wobegon days with anal jokes”, Jason has told the story of his tumultuous life on stage every week – initially at the 50 seat SModcastle theater in Los Angeles and now in packed theaters around the globe. His sold out UK tour spawned the home video Jay & Silent Bob Get Old: Teabagging in the UK, and the sold out Australia tour yielded the forthcoming Epix special Jay & Silent Bob Go Down Under.
