Biography: Birth Name: Kevin Smith
Birth Place: Red Bank, New Jersey, USA
Born on Aug. 2, 1970 in Highlands, NJ, Smith was raised by his father, Donald, a postal worker and his mother, Grace, a homemaker. As a child, Smith saw his father's misery at having to work a soul-sucking job, which led to the young lad's determination to work at something he loved. An average student who received routine Bs and Cs, Smith videotaped basketball games and put on his own "Saturday Night Live" sketches while attending Henry Hudson High School. Though overweight, he had developed a sharp sense of humor in order to make it with the girls in his class. After graduating high school, Smith attended The New School for Social Research's creative writing program, but dropped out after ...
Kevin Smith Here’s the new show art for #Edumacation featuring me, @mtverbal (Andy McElfresh) and our mascot, Emo the depressed goldfish. On the brand new episode of Edu, Bane does some more stand-up - a bit Andy came up with that I love because it forces me to write on my feet. But that’s been our relationship since we met over a decade ago while doing Roadside Attractions segments for the old Tonight Show: Andy’s humor tends to be more brainy than mine, so he’s always upped my weak-ass comedy game. But Andy’s not just hilarious - he’s also a man who’s good with graphics and a Maya. So last year, I asked Andy to make me a sausage: in @YogaHosers, after @rlkurtzman covered me in rubber, it was Andy’s job to shrink me down, give me legs and turn me into a #Bratzi (ALL the #Bratzis). Every time a Bratzi attacks #TheColleens Andy had to spend hours in a tiny workstation closet making it happen - a one man digital effects team. When some of the reviews called the Bratzi effects cheesy or obvious, Andy and I were kinda delighted: #YogaHosers is meant to be an 80’s teen movie as done by #WilliamCastle so cheesy and obvious were our main aims. My life has always been made better when Renaissance man McElfresh gets involved. So trust me when I say YOUR life will be made better with a l'il Andy too. So subscribe to #Edumacation and give Andy a listen! (Or go download our latest #Meowtallica track at #BandCamp which helps pay for the CG Emo cartoons Andy is directing)!

Kevin Smith I'm standing in movie history: it's roughly here that Timmy Lupus caught the ball in #thebadnewsbears - the 40 year old cinema classic by #Fletch director #michaelritchie. I'm turned around to show you the infield, where #amandawurlitzer and #coachbuttermaker took on the 1976 Denny's Yankees of the North Valley League. The flick was shot at #masonpark in #chatsworth California - about 20 minutes from my house. Yesterday, I took my wife Jen to see the field of dreams where #engelberg got chocolate on the ball and #tannerboyle tripped the other team as they rounded the bases. Jen was like "Why does this matter to you?" I think it's because this movie was the first honest treatment of kids that I'd ever seen while I was still a kid. I mean (SPOILERS!!!) The Bears lose in the end. Do you know how rare that was, for a movie hero to not win? The Bears lost even before #Rocky ever lost (by about 7 months). But Rocky won #academyawards. If they gave out retroactive #oscars then The Bad News Bears deserves the gold for standing the test of time: it's just as effective a piece of storytelling today as it was four decades ago. I know lots of people still visit #quickstop because #Clerks means something to them. Mason Park is MY Quick Stop. #kevinsmith #buttercrud #ahmadabdulrahim #rudistein #miguelaguilar #joseaguilar #ogilvie #jimmyfeldman #tobywhitewood #regitower
