We’ve been announcing lots of guests over the course of April and we have many more still left to announce! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for the latest news and check out everyone we’ve announced so far on our Guests page.

“Weird Al” Yankovic
"Weird Al" Yankovic is a pop culture icon whose multi-faceted career spans almost four decades, and is best known for his parodies of the biggest songs and artists in the musical universe. With his modest beginnings in the “acoustically perfect” bathroom across the hall from his campus radio station at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, CA where he recorded his parody of the Knack’s “My Sharona” which he re-titled “My Bologna,” he quickly became a fixture on the nationally syndicated radio show hosted by Dr. Demento. The rest is history, encompassing fourteen studio albums and four Grammy awards, world-famous music videos, countless TV and movie appearances including his own cult classic film UHF, two NY Times best-selling childrens’ books, and years of concert touring across the globe. His most recent album, Mandatory Fun, is the first album in history to debut at #1 on the Billboard charts, and he can currently be heard in the title role of the Disney animated series Milo Murphy’s Law. More than anything, Weird Al has done more to advance the cause of nerds everywhere, for which we can all be thankful!

Ming Chen
Ming Chen’s road to Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash all began in 1995 when the college student, video store employee and avid Kevin Smith follower developed a fan website based on the movie Clerks. Smith, who appreciated Chen’s work, reached out and asked him to create a website for his production company, View Askew Productions. Almost eighteen years later, not only does Chen continue to work on all of Smith’s online projects, including AMC's Comic Book Men, but has also ventured into several other areas within the Kevin Smith empire, most recently hosting a weekly podcast called “I Sell Comics” with Michael Zapcic on Smith’s radio network S.I.R.: SModcast Internet Radio. Chen is not only the technical expert for The Stash, but also the perfect person to ask to do the jobs no one else wants to do. He takes it all with a smile, and is happy to be a part of the team.
