An Intimate Evening w/ Jason Mewes

Jason Mewes (he’d be the “Jay” in Jay & Silent Bob) passed through Toronto last night for An Intimate Evening with Jason Mewes at the Bloor Cinema. It was a smaller than expected crowd – likely not more than 250 – and Toronto, you missed a good time.

He had no prepared material, doing straight q&a for 90 minutes, with a quick break to watch trailers for his upcoming films Shoot the Hero and Repo. But the questions posed by the mix of comic book geeks and stoners provided more than enough of a springboard for Mewes to pontificate on everything from marriage (he hates being away from his wife), to Kevin Smith, (“I’m always going to be in that fat fuck’s shadow, no matter what I do!”), to his rock bottom drug abuse (pot, crack, and snorting up to 8x80mgs of Oxycontin a day).

But the man who slept with Kimberly Stewart and Nicole Richie, proudly recounted laying his balls in his sleeping friend’s eye sockets, and had no trouble answering the question of which superhero he’d rather of sex with (Superman over Batman, definitely) proved to be a supremely classy guy, hanging out and doing the photo/autograph thing with anyone who wanted it (which was pretty much everyone).

Mewes heads to Edmonton this weekend to host the Sonic Boom Festival, and also hinted that he may have reason to visit Canada again soon for periods of 2-3 months. Mysterious!
