R.I.P. Jerry Robinson

Artist Jerry Robinson created The Joker.  Even though Mr. Robinson is no longer with us, his creation will live on in comic books, graphic novels, blockbuster movies, Big Gulp cups, Converse All Star Hi Joker Batman Athletic Shoes, childrens' bedsheets, action figures, Mark Hamill voice recordings, Pez dispensers, Christmas ornaments, novelty records, fake vintage T-shirts, carnival game knock-off plushies, bobbleheads, queer fan fiction, illegally downloaded TV shows, Japanese collectibles, questionable tattoos, Simpsons' references, un-funny political cartoons, well-intentioned youtube tribute videos, cereal bowls, shot glasses, overpriced posters, Fisher Price playhouses, back-to-school supplies, college thesis papers by nerds, kids' Halloween costumes and the unreleased (but written) obituaries for Jack Nicholson, Alan Moore and Frank Miller.

Here's R. Sikoryak's recent illustration of Robinson (this first appeared in The New Yorker)

the return of KEVIN GEEKS OUT - HOLIDAY GRAB BAG SHOW!


I'm delighted to announce that KEVIN GEEKS OUT will be bringing back the HOLIDAY GRAB BAG SHOW.  Instead of the traditional "obsessive theme nights" we welcome some of our favorite returning guests (and new friends) to share their favorite geek-obsessions.

Topics include:

How He-Man spends the Holidays

A close look at the most depressing Christmas song

Confessions of a 12-time Macy's Santa

Tour Diary by Britney Spears' punk clown

Doom Cakes: the cinematic tradition in which any beautifully decorated cake serves as a harbinger of imminent catasropher (often include the destruction of said cake)


All this, plus weird and wonderful segments like geek bingo, trivia prizes, rare videos, stump the guest panelist and free snacks!

BUY TICKETS HERE  (no service charge)


Multi-media variety shows don't get better than this, so come on out and geek out with these special guests:

Tom Blunt (host of (2Y Tribeca's MEET THE LADY)

Glen Heroy (actor and clown)

M. Sweeney Lawless (writer for THE LOWBROW READER)

Nick Nadel (editor of TheFW.com)

Professor Geoff Klock (author of HOW TO READ SUPERHERO COMICS AND WHY)
