Got some time? Go check out the article I written about my experience with Joe Bob Briggs at The Hollywood Theater:
Film critic, writer and comic performer, Joe Bob was a contributing editor to the National Lampoon, freelance writer for Rolling Stone, Playboy, the Village Voice, and Interview, and a commentator on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. But he is perhaps best known and loved for his stint as the redneck Texan with an avowed love of the drive-in on the tv program Joe Bob’s Drive-In Theater on The Movie Channel, and MonsterVision on TNT. When we asked Joe Bob what film he wanted to show to our patrons, he said TRICK OR TREAT, the 1986 immortal classic horror film directed by Michael S. Murphey (that actor from Never Cry Wolf and American Graffiti), and starring Marc Price (Skippy from Family Ties), with cameos by none other than Ozzy Ozbourne and Gene Simmons. And we tracked down a rare 35mm print to show that night! We’ll have scary treats and a costume contest with prizes. Doors open at 6pm for photos and autographs with Joe Bob (for whatever fee he charges). Costume prizes and the intro at 8pm, and the film rolls after. Tickets are $12 all seats, or just $8 for our Members! No passes or discounts.
