Kevin Smith – acclaimed film maker and 90s pop culture legend – to entertain at Oz Comic-Con Brisbane

Slackers, fan girls and scene kids of Brisbane, start dusting off your flannel shirts and brushing up on your 90’s pop culture references, because your king is coming! Kevin Smith, voice of a generation and one of the biggest cult filmmakers around, will be presenting a special, one-off panel at Oz Comic-Con Brisbane on Sunday 20th September.

Smith is a writer, director, actor and producer who shot to fame thanks to his independent New Jersey film trilogy, which began with Clerks, in 1994. His highly acclaimed films Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma and Chasing Amy inspired cult-like devotion of 90’s teens around the world. Kevin, along with his ‘hetero life mate’ Jason Mewes (aka Jay), is in Australia as part of his highly anticipated An Evening With Kevin Smith tour.

Brisbane fans will have the unique opportunity to attend a special panel with Kevin Smith and participate in a Q&A session. So for those fans that have spent their lives discussing the pros and cons of working on the Deathstar, or whether Alannis Morissette really is God, this is your chance!

Smith joins a growing list of guests in the impressive line-up for Oz Comic-Con Brisbane. Other guests recently announced including Clive Standen (Vikings), Brian Krause (Charmed), Evanna Lynch and Robbie Jarvis (Harry Potter), Stephen Hunter and Jed Brophy (The Hobbit), Jim Beaver (Supernatural), Mark Sheppard (Supernatural – Brisbane only), Ksenia Solo (Lost Girl), Rachel Luttrell (Stargate Atlantis) and Rachel Nichols (Continuum). This is in addition to previously announced guests including Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver, Stargate SG-1), Tim Rose (Star Wars), Rob Maschio and Sam Lloyd (Scrubs) and Dante Basco (Hook).

Oz Comic-Con Brisbane is about more than just the film and television guests however, with a huge range of activities and features occurring across the weekend.
