During the Kent State questionnaire we see students sitting on the floor between the aisles due to over selling the amount of ticketed seats. This is a serious violation of the fire code and a safety hazard, therefore the fire Marshall could have shut down the event, the event organizers and the university officials should be aware of this.

I always like to think of it as like, I've got 'em sittin' there, whip a little message at 'em. Whip a little moral at 'em. Whip a little of what my view of the world is. Because that's what every good filmmaker does. You can't change the world. You can't cure the world. All you can do is be like, "This is it through my eyes. Do you agree or not agree?"

Before any Kevin Smith fans get bent out of shape, I think Smith's films range from simply amusing (Mallrats) to laugh-out-loud hilarious (Clerks/Dogma). I even think that Smith has some very insightful turns (Chasing Amy/Jersey Girl).
That being said, simply watching this man stand and talk to an audience is the funniest thing I've ever seen him involved in. The stories of events that have actually happened in Kevin Smith's life, at least as told from his perspective, are more interesting and hilarious than any Hollywood script I can think of in recent years.
If Smith decided to stop making movies, I honestly think he could have a career as a spoken word artist along the lines of Spalding Gray. I don't care what you think about Kevin Smith as a filmmaker, this is well worth checking out.
