Jason Mewes Live

21 May // Anson Rooms: The Winston Theatre

Cinema icon Jason Mewes (Jay and Silent Bob) brings his hit stand-up show to Bristol! 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.
