The popular Film-maker Kevin Smith is coming to the UK for a short live tour of his podcast Jay And Silent Bob Get Old. He is joined by collaborator Jason Mewes for the three shows in London, Manchester and Edinburgh in February.

Their cult characters first appeared in Smith’s 1994 film Clerks, and went on to appear in Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma as well as 2001's Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

They now perform the cult storytelling podcast Jay and Silent Bob Get Old, which chronicles their early years and friendship as they grew up in Hollywood’s gaze.

The UK shows will be recorded and released as free downloads on www.smodcast.com.

Kevin Smith previously had a solo tour of Britain in 2009, but this is the first time he has performed here in his Silent Bob persona.

The small tour opens at Manchester's Apollo on February 17, Hammersmith Apollo on the 18th and Edinburgh Festival Theatre on the 19th. Tickets are on sale now.
