Twitter Feud: Al Roker

Al Roker is not the friendly 
weatherman everyone thinks he is.
The following is an exchange 
we had on twitter.

This is the real Al Roker.
He is really a jerk. 

I was trying to get some show dates,
and he responded by 
calling me a beggar.

New York City comics Steve Loftus and Joey Gay immediately came to my defense, as did Australian comedian Liam McCann.

Even the owner of Stand Up New York 
comedy club, Dani Zoldan chimed in.

If nobody books me, 
I don't get paid. 

He responds by calling me a hack.

The owner of Stand Up New York 
got very interested.

At one point he suggested 
we have a rap battle at his club.

After all the insults seemed over... 
Roker called me fat.

Not only did he insult me, he took jabs 
at standup comedy in general. 

Comedy is a sacred art and comics 
take this art very seriously. 

The world needs to know what 
a jerk this guy is.

Clerks 3 featuring... YOU?

Kevin Smith (Silent Bob) Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, Clerks 2... Clerks 3?

Kevin Smith has decided to go grass-roots once again. The writer/director best know for his Jay & Silent Bob films got his big break by maxing out credits cards for the original Clerks and has decided to use social networking to help cast what could be his final film, Clerks III.

Smith is a social media guru and has decided to give back to his supporters in an interesting way. Anyone that retweets #ClerksCast to @ThatKevinSmith will be given a background cameo appearance in the new film. The production is a long way off and still awaiting the thumbs up from original co-star Jeff Anderson (Randall) but this news is an interesting twist for anyone who ever wanted to be involved with a Kevin Smith movie or smoke a blunt alongside Jay and Silent Bob.

Clerks was a dialogue-heavy reflection of the life and times of two 20-somethings in the early 1990's. Clerks 2, the sequel to the original featured Dante and Randall in their 30's, and this final film will reportedly feature the two in their 40's.
