We’ve got a new KEVIN GEEKS OUT show coming up.
This month’s theme is RIP-OFF CINEMA, chronicling the “knockbusters” that attempt to capture the magic of big-budget movies. Buy tickets HERE (NOTE: We’re an editor’s pick at Gothamist as one of the 20 Fun Things to do in May, so the show will likely sell-out.)

Here’s the line-up:
Webby-winning comedian Rusty Ward looks back on James Cameron’s inspiration for THE TERMINATOR — and the bitter lawsuit that followed.
Filmmaker Matthew Glasson explores the gritty legacy of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD rip-offs.
Cult-film lover Tenebrous Kate shared oddly-familiar clips from TURKISH CINEMA.
Tom Blunt (host of the MEET THE LADY series) looks at MORTAL KOMBAT rip-offs.
Writer M. Sweeney Lawless skewers KONGA, the British KING KONG.
Nick Nadel (editor, TheFW.com) offers a retrospective on bootleg movie merchandies and toys from around the world.
Jamie Greenberg delivers a first-class trivia game.
And your host, Kevin Maher, talks about his favorite forgotten copycat films.
Plus home-made snacks from Sara Reiss (using store-brand cereals.)
KEVIN GEEKS OUT is the comedy variety show hosted by writer-comedian Kevin Maher — a confabulation of vintage film clips and videos, new finds, guest experts, games and curiosities. To geek out with Kevin you don’t need to be a geek, you just need to love cool stuff.
