Today’s featured event:
NORMAN – Catch the final screening of the Oklahoma-made short film “Clerks Too” before it hits the Internet at 8 tonight at Mainsite Contemporary Art Gallery, 122 E Main Street. The screening is free and open to the public.
Originally devised as a shot-for-shot remake of Kevin Smith’s 1994 cult comedy hit “Clerks,” Norman comedian/musician James Nghiem’s “Clerks Too” instead became a 37-minute short about one man’s misguided quest to create a shot-for-shot remake of “Clerks.”
“‘Clerks’ is one of my favorite movies from when I was a kid. Also, I wanted to get like everybody in the (Oklahoma City) comedy scene involved. And if I was gonna redo a movie that had just like a million random parts, I would think of ‘Clerks’ ’cause there’s like a ton of small parts that people just pop in, say a line and disappear,” Nghiem told me in a recent interview.
