About the Authors
Jason Edward Mewes was born on June 12, 1974 in Highlands, New Jersey, and grew up in a working-class neighborhood. He never knew his father, and his mother was an ex-con and a drug addict. Relates Mewes: “She used to check into hotels and take TVs and sell them…I guess it really ain’t funny, but it’s weird because it was so fucked up…She used to steal mail. I used to drive around with her and she’d pull up and make me reach into mailboxes. It really wasn’t pleasant.” Although this exposure to drugs at first served to make him averse to them, he eventually began using them after graduating from high school.
His best friend was future filmmaker Kevin Smith, who describes his friend thus: “[Jason]’s the kind of dude you know for five minutes and he whips his c*** out. I was like, Somebody should put this dude in a movie. I just wanted to see if anybody outside our group of friends finds him as funny as I do.”
Kevin Patrick Smith (born August 2, 1970) is an American screenwriter, actor, film producer, speaker and director, as well as a popular comic book writer, author, comedian/raconteur, and podcaster.
He came to prominence with the low-budget comedy Clerks (1994), which he wrote, directed, co-produced, and acted as the character Silent Bob. Smith’s first several films were mostly set in his home state of New Jersey, and while not strictly sequential, they frequently feature crossover plot elements, character references, and a shared canon described by fans as the “View Askewniverse”, named after his production company View Askew Productions, which he co-founded with Scott Mosier.
Smith also directed and produced films such as the buddy cop action comedy Cop Out, as well as the horror film Red State.
Smith is also the owner of Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, a comic book store in Red Bank, New Jersey. He co-hosts several weekly podcasts that are released on SModcast Internet Radio. Smith is well known for participating in long, humorous Q&A sessions that are often filmed for DVD release, beginning with An Evening with Kevin Smith.
