Staff Reviews


This book delivered exactly what I hoped for from the main creative forces behind Broken Lizard. There are about as many “colorful” jokes as one might imagine, including hilarious misadventures with sex, drugs and the comedy high life. But those jokes are very funny, and his writing is honest, engaging and full of good advice about film, comedy, and just living. 

Check it out, right meow.

Description


Director, writer, and actor Jay Chandrasekhar tells the hilarious stories behind his films Super Troopers and Super Troopers 2 (out on 4/20/2018 ), the history of his comedy group, Broken Lizard, and everything in between.

Jay Chandrasekhar has spent the past two decades writing, directing, and acting in film and TV. With his comedy group, Broken Lizard, he has produced and directed beloved movies such as Super Troopers, Beer-fest, and Club Dread. Now, with the upcoming release of the long-awaited Super Troopers 2, Jay is ready to tell the ridiculous, madcap, dead-honest story of how he built his career, how he formed Broken Lizard, and, ultimately, how he made Super Troopers.

Jay grew up Indian American in the lily-white sub-urbs of Chicago, and he had an outsider's perspective from the beginning. Instead of taking the traditional acting path, he formed his own troupe, wrote his own scripts, and made movies his own way. And he had an incredibly good time doing so as readers will learn in this hilarious story about making it in Hollywood and directing, cowriting, and costarring in one of the best-loved and most-watched comedies of all time. Part humorous memoir, part film study, this book will inform, entertain, and tell readers what drinking mul-tiple bottles of maple syrup is really like.
