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.

    "You need to read this right meow!!"

    Hilarious and witty, Jay's read of his own words is great. If you love Super Troopers and the other Broken Lizard films, it's great to get a behind the scenes peak at the beginning of a culture that has shaped so much of my own dialogue. Three... Two... One... Do it!

    "Thanks for the Inspiration"

    I'm not a child of as much privilege as Jay, but I'm white, so maybe my lack of financial opportunity vs my white privilege is a wash. Be that as it may, this is a phenomenal audiobook and once we make our feature, I'll hopefully have a drink with the Lizards. Well done.

    "Compelling"

    I'm only a fan of super troopers, not so much the other films of broken lizard, but I enjoyed this listen. Jay Chandrasekhar is a great story teller.

    "Broken Lizard!!"

    I love the storyline, the history, and the realness of it. It's a story that makes this comedic group relatable. I can only love them more now. Thank you, Jay.

    Story
    "Who wants a mustache ride?"

    This is a great book if you're fans of broken lizards. Jay provides a detailed behind the scenes look at his career and shares a lot of on set secrets and stories about his movies. Very entertaining read and the narration is excellent. This book makes me want to go back and watch all of their movies again, especially Super Troopers which of course is the best movie ever made!

    I always like to support these guys, they are always entertaining. Keep up the good work, I can't wait until the release of Super Troopers 2.

    "Fun tales"

    If you like Broken Lizard, I definitely recommend. Entertaining anecdotes about the group and their movies. Always love non-fiction read by the author!

    "Nah"

    The stories are okay but not juicy enough to recommend the book. It's a long audio resume. If you are a huge broken lizard fan you may enjoy the behind the scenes stories but if you are a novice like myself then this is not the book for you.

    "Great story!"

    I really loved this! The story flowed and I learned so much about Jay and Broken Lizard I hadn't previously known. Excellent book and can't wait to encourage others to read or listen to it!
