For fanboys of AMC's reality show Comic Book Men, centered around the on-goings of Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, Kevin Smith's Jersey-based comic book store, this Monday night at the Brea Improv is a sci-fi fantasy come true. And for everyone else—well, who doesn't love Kevin Smith? His cohost for the evening is Bryan Johnson, also known as Beard-Guy on the show—and a staple on Smith's mega-hit podcasts. For tonight's act, Smith and Johnson take a page from those podcasts (ranked a "Best Of" on iTunes) with their Why, Bry? segment. Here, Johnson reveals warped, hysterical, unbelievable Springer-type stories from his years in New Jersey. Like the one about his girlfriend's mom who, um, really liked him. It's going to be a wonderfully depraved evening.
