Kevin Smith Talks About His Comedy Special, “Silent but Deadly”

On February 25, veteran comic Kevin Smith took the stage at the Alex Theater in Glendale, CA to perform the first of two planned stand-up shows. But right after the first show ended, he suffered a near-fatal heart attack. Smith cheated death, and the special shot that fateful evening was “Kevin Smith: Silent but Deadly.” In the special, Smith riffs on marriage, fatherhood, friends and his work (or lack thereof). Lucky and happy to be alive, the award-winning comedian/filmmaker/writer/actor/podcaster now brings this death-defying special to his multitude of fans.
