Kevin Geeks Out Tomorrow

[I will be at this tomorrow, as will Sara. If you are in NYC, come visit. Sara talks about Smurfs and I talk about how Ocean's 12 is the best movie ever, which you may have heard me talk about before, but not as fast as tomorrow night.]

Part of the series Kevin Geeks Out!

Kevin Geeks Out is the comedy-variety show hosted by writer-comedian Kevin Maher – a monthly confabulation of vintage film clips and videos, new finds, guest experts, games and curiosities. To geek out with Kevin you don’t need to be a geek, you just need to love cool stuff.

This month, Kevin gives the audience a Holiday Grab Bag; an evening filled with surprise video entertainment. Eight Special Guests give the gift of weird, wonderful movie and TV clips, with topics including Godzilla: History, Biology and Behavior of Hyper-Evolved Theropod Kaiju; How He-Man spends the Holidays; Gratuitous Shark Scenes in post-JAWS Cinema; and using the Socratic Method to debate whether or not Oceans 12 is the greatest movie ever made. Guest Speakers/Presenters include:

Professor Geoff Klock (author of How to Read Superhero Comics and Why)
Shyaporn Theerakulstitb (actor/writer/director/D-List YouTuber)
R. Sikoryak (author of Masterpiece Comics)
Sara Reiss (occasional blogger and self-described “hater”)
M. Sweeney Lawless (writer for The Lowbrow Reader)
Noah Tarnow (host of Big Quiz Thing)
Craig Wichman (writer-director-actor of award-winning radio dramas)
Nick Nadel (blogger for Comics Alliance and American Movie Classics

All this, plus holiday cupcakes, trivia prizes and video tributes to Chanukah and Christmas and other secret surprises that will not be revealed until the night of the show.
