Tell 'Em Steve-Dave is an American comedy podcast previously on the SModcast Podcast Network. It is hosted by View Askew Productions regulars and close friends of Kevin Smith: Bryan Johnson and Walt Flanagan of AMC's Comic Book Men, as well as Brian Quinn Of Impractical Jokers. The show is edited by Declan Quinn of Creaky Studios. Tell 'Em Steve-Dave! is recorded in Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash in Red Bank, New Jersey, the location of the television show Comic Book Men. Frequent guests on the show include Gitem Steve-Dave, an employee at Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash; Sunday Jeff, the store's Sunday employee; and Dave Wyndorf of Monster Magnet.

The show's title comes from a running joke in Smith's View Askewniverse movies in which Flanagan's character, Fanboy, yells "Tell 'em, Steve-Dave!" at Johnson's character, Steve-Dave. According to Johnson, the character of Steve-Dave is based on the owner of a comic book store that Smith, Johnson, and Flanagan once frequented; "Walter could never remember if the guy's name was actually Steve or Dave. So the name Steve-Dave was coined."[1]
