Slideshow: Three Sides of Director Kevin Smith at Book Promotion in Chicago

9 May 2012 3:26 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Kevin Smith is not a subtle guy. The director/writer/actor and comic book geek supreme has a new book out called “Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good.” In it, he relates how his unlikely empire was built, and how he became the force within it. He was recently in downtown Chicago, promoting the life lessons at Books-a-Million on March 30th.

Smith first came on the scene in 1994, when at 23 years old he made the independent film legend, “Clerks.” Since then, he has had film hits (“Chasing Amy”), misses (“Mallrats”) and everything in between, all while maintaining his dream comic book store in New Jersey and acting in such films as “Live Free or Die Hard.” Smith will also appear in Chicago on June 14th as part of the “Just for Laughs Chicago” Festival, in “An Evening with Kevin Smith” at the Chicago Theater. »

DVD Review: Kevin Smith – Too Fat For 40

Kevin Smith: Too Fat For 40

Stars: Kevin Smith | Directed by Joey Figueroa, Zak Knutson

Kevin Smith is back with the fourth of his his stand-up DVDs, Too Fat For 40. Following the success of An Evening With Kevin Smith and An Evening With Kevin Smith 2: Evening Harder, the fan-favourite filmmaker returns with his first new stand-up DVD in five years – which was filmed on the evening of Kevin Smith’s 40th birthday before a crowd of fans at the Count Basie Theatre in his home town of Red Bank, New Jersey.

Taking its name from Smith’s much-publicised spat with Southwest Airlines where they declared him “too fat to fly” (which he actually discusses at length during the show), Too Fat For 40 is yet another routine filled with anecdotes and stories which are rife with Smith’s now-typical self deprecating humour – however like his previous show, A Three-vening with Kevin Smith, »
