Jay & Silent Bob Get Old was a weekly podcast featuring filmmaker Kevin Smith and actor Jason Mewes. Released each Wednesday, the podcast features Jason Mewes talking about his past drug addictions and sexual encounters.[1][2][3] The podcast has toured across the United States and internationally to Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom.[1][2][4][5] iTunes named the podcast one of the best podcasts of 2010.[1][6]


The podcast is designed to keep Mewes sober and started several months after Mewes regained his sobriety following a relapse (Vicodin for surgery). He has been sober since July 2, 2010.[2][7][8][9] One of the issues Smith and Mewes have while doing the podcast, is audiences expect them to come in character, while in reality it is styled after a conversation.[1][2][3][9][10][11] Another common feature, known as "Let Us Fuck", involves Mewes and audience members demonstrating fake sex positions.[2][10] Thanks to the success of the podcast and Mewes remaining clean, he has been able to buy a house.[10]

Travel and charity[edit]

Originally the podcast was based at Universal CityWalk in The Jon Lovitz Comedy Club & Podcast Theatre, until Smith and Mewes took it on tour.[12] Jay & Silent Bob Get Old's 100th podcast was recorded at The Jon Lovitz Comedy Club & Podcast Theatre and proceeds went to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.[9] The podcast went on tour with Jay & Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie in 2013.[13]
