Barbour Shop Creative presents An Evening with Joe Bob Briggs on Saturday, April 22, at 8:00pm.
Spend a fast-and-furious two hours with America’s drive-in movie critic as he uses over 200 clips and stills to review the history of rednecks in America as told through the classics of both grindhouse and mainstream movies.
Joe Bob Briggs is the world’s foremost drive-in movie critic. His wisecracking take on B-movies was featured on two long-running late-night television shows, first on The Movie Channel and then on TNT. That tradition continues with his latest series, The Last Drive-In, currently featured on AMC's Shudder streaming platform. Briggs is also a successful investigative journalist, actor, and author. His nine books include Joe Bob Goes to the Drive-In (1987) and Profoundly Disturbing: Shocking Movies that Changed History (2003).
He has appeared in several movies, including Casino, Face/Off, and Great Balls of Fire, and continues to be a regular host and Master of Ceremonies at film festivals and conventions around the country. Joe Bob is currently touring with his critically acclaimed "How Rednecks Saved Hollywood," a one-man comedy show that traces the entire history of the redneck, as told through movies, from 16th-century Scotland to the present.
Briggs hosted Joe Bob’s Drive-In Theater for eleven years on The Movie Channel and MonsterVision for five years on TNT. During the course of his hosting career, he has executive-produced 20,000 hours of television and become the leading authority on exploitation and genre films. In 2018, The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs broke the Internet and is now in its 5th season on Shudder.
