Publisher's Summary

Director, writer, and actor Jay Chandrasekhar tells the hilarious history of his comedy group, Broken Lizard, and the making of the cult film Super Troopers, as well as the currently filming Super Troopers 2.

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, Beerfest, and Club Dread. Now, with the coming 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 suburbs of Chicago, and he had an outsider's perspective from the beginning. Instead of taking the traditional acting path, he formed his own troop, wrote his own scripts, and made movies his own way. And he had an incredibly good time doing so, as listeners will learn in this hilarious story about making it in Hollywood and making 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 listeners what drinking multiple bottles of maple syrup is really like.

    "Broken lizard behind the scenes"

    It was interesting to hear jays perspective about how he got his start as well as lizards. Follows the rhythm and jokes of the movies which I enjoy so it met my expectations.

    "great look at trying to make it"

    interesting perspective on trying to make it big in the film industry. also had no idea broken lizard was involved in so much stuff I truly love... I mean arrested development? Who knew...

    finally makes sense why a property I despise like dukes of hazard came out done well because someone was passionate about making it right

    and that Burt Reynolds anecdote is amazing.

    overall worth the read/listen.

    full disclosure, I did help crowd fund super troopers 2, but now I'm even gladder I did that.

    p.s. nothing is wrong with the performance, but it doesn't add or subtract from the book. I always prefer hearing the author read.
