An Evening With Kevin Smith At The Ryman?

August 17, 2009

twitterWriter/director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma) said he’d love to do one of his famous “An Evening With…” Q&A’s in Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. The venue is perhaps best known as the home of the Grand Ole Opry for more than three decades. It now serves as a popular spot for smaller music shows and comedians.

The fact that it used to be a church located firmly in the bible belt usually makes it an eventual target for a lot of  “R-rated” performers. I love seeing folks like Jon Stewart and even the late great George Carlin play this venue because they can’t help but make reference to the pews and church-like seating arrangement.

Kevin Smith would be eternally quotable in such a setting. I think I speak for all fans when I say he’d be more than welcome in our fair city if not just for the novelty alone.  Check out a screenshot of the actual tweet below…
