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.

Don't doubt yourself, This is gold

If you are a fan of anything from the Broken Lizard crew, this is an (audio)book for you. I've read the book and listened to the audio version, and to hear Jay Chandrasekhar tell all the stories is like listening to a Broken Lizard movie. Great listen, and so much laughter!

better than the movies themselves!

Gearing the stories on how his movies came to be are hilarious. He and his entire gang of friends/co-stars are artistic geniuses.

Fun & Entertaining Listen

Being a fan of Broken Lizard movies like Super Troopers & Beer Fest I knew I was going to enjoy this book going in. Filled with behind the scenes stories from the movies and some about the inner workings of the entertainment industry. If you’re a new fan, old fan or just enjoy good stories then this book is for you!

Gotta Love It!

It’s Fucking Hilarious. I hear from the man himself regale us with tales of how we grew up, got into show business and just his interests in movies, tv and in his career to say the least is just great it’s just a funny thing to hear from him. This is worth the time and well worth the laugh. Jay Chandrasekhar’s performance almost makes you feel as if you were right there with him going along his journey as a member of Broken Lizard.

If afterwards, you feel the next to rewatch all his movies, don’t worry, I’m doing it myself.

Gotta Love It!
