Sold Out: A Threevening With Kevin Smith

Sold Out: A Threevening with Kevin Smith is the third in Kevin Smith's "Evening With" series. Footage for the release was shot at a Q&A performance on August 2, 2007 (Smith's 37th birthday) in front of a sold-out crowd at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey. Smith was introduced by his wife Jennifer Schwalbach Smith and his daughter, Harley Quinn Smith. Kevin has said on his web board that they could not use the "Evening With.." moniker for this installment because it is being produced and released by a different studio, but got around it by subtitling it "A Threevening With Kevin Smith". The main feature on the DVD features 4 hours cut from the original 7 hour performance. Topics include the origin of Kevin's name, Kevin suffering from an anal fissure, as well as stories from acting in Manchild, Live Free or Die Hard, Catch and Release and shooting Clerks II. It is also revealed that because of his work on Live Free or Die Hard, Bruce Willis contacted him about working together; this eventually led to Cop Out.

The DVD was released on October 21, 2008.

Famous quotes containing the words smith and/or kevin:

    There are few sorrows, however poignant, in which a good income is of no avail.
    —Logan Pearsall Smith (1865–1946)

    Well, on the official record you’re my son. But on this post you’re just another trooper. You heard me tell the recruits what I need from them. Twice that I will expect from you.... You’ve chosen my way of life. I hope you have the guts enough to endure it. But put outa your mind any romantic ideas that it’s a way to glory. It’s a life of suffering and of hardship and uncompromising devotion to your oath and your duty.
    —James Kevin McGuinness, and John Ford. Lt. Col. Kirby Yorke (John Wayne)
