TBS Just for Laughs-Photo/ Video Kevin Smith Recap


Kevin Smith at Chicago Theater 6/14/12




TBS Just for Laughs Chicago continues



Over 100 comedians make Chi-Town funny ha-ha AND funny weird through this Sunday, June 17th.    Check out their main site here.    We had the great pleasure of checking out Kevin Smith (a not so silent version of Silent Bob) last night at Chicago Theater.    It was a pleasure to give away 10 tickets to our readers and to hear him get raunchy and real in a great Q & A.

  

At ChiIL Mama/ChiIL Live Shows, we've been doing a long running video exploration of How Creatives Parent and How Parents Create which you can check out here at our Pinterest Board.    I would love to catch up with Kevin Smith for a little one on one convo. about his wife and daughter.

Some great stuff came out at the Chicago Theater about how his family influences and inspires his creative work....from his wife's paranoid pot freak out to his toddler daughter's rocking out to theme music show credits, leading him to seek out a cameo appearance on one of their family favorites, Law and Order in 2000.   Smith is married to Jennifer Schwalbach Smith.   Their 13 year old daughter, Harley Quinn, was named for the Batman character.







 

Fan(atics) wait beside The Chicago Theater to get their memorabilia signed by Kevin Smith. 


Our favorite TBS promo was the 7 foot tall custom bike!   We scored an exclusive video interview with the rider/bike creator/bike shop owner that we'll have up in the very near future.
    


Chi-town has character & characters! 




Even a street Tina came out to sing and dance with passers by! 

TBS Just for Laughs is ubiquitous this week.   We saw their rickshaws and signage over outside of the Cubs game yesterday and they had a bunch of billboard trucks outside of The Chicago Theater last night.   They also had clever swag dispensers like a free t-shirt vending machine that works with a Conan code and a human roulette prize wheel.




There are still a ton of great shows going down Friday through Sunday.   Be sure to check out the full line up and performers' info here.
