CULT filmmaker and pop culture icon Kevin Smith is in Manchester on Sunday when he will be presenting his podcast live.

The Clerks director will be joined by actor Ralph Garman for Hollywood Babble-On at Manchester Apollo.

It is part of a string of four dates that will bring the live show back to the UK for the first time since 2014.

Recorded live in front of a theatre audience, these shows will see Smith and Garman look back at the week’s biggest entertainment stories from the US and beyond.

With more than 340 episodes released since its launch in 2012, Hollywood Babble-On quickly became a podcast sensation.

It has been named by iTunes as one of the ‘Best Podcasts of The Year’ and regularly appears as one of the Top 20 rated podcasts.

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that after nearly 20 years Kevin Smith and his Jay and Silent Bob co-star Jason Mewes will be returning with the sequel to 2001 cult film Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Filming on the new film began in spring 2019.

Tickets for ‘Babble The *U*K On!’ are still available from and
