Description

Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske, comprise the five-member filmmaking comedy group Broken Lizard. Broken Lizard formed at Colgate University as a student sketch comedy group. Following graduation, they relocated to New York City, where they performed live shows in exchange for sexual favors. The group began its feature film career with their award-winning debut Puddle Cruiser in 1996. They followed up with the independently-financed, cult-hit Super Troopers (Fox Searchlight), which premiered at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival and was released worldwide in February 2002. Besides earning $20 million at the box office, Super Troopers also found a massive audience in the home video market, selling over five million copies on DVD. They followed Super Troopers with yet another cult favorite, the horror-comedy Club Dread (Fox Searchlight) which was released in February of 2004. In 2005, the group co-wrote and acted in the film remake of the popular 70’s television series The Dukes of Hazzard (Warner Bros), which was directed by Chandrasekhar. They followed their work on Dukes of Hazzard with Beerfest, released in August 2006, and most recently The Slammin’ Salmon released in 2009. Their successful stand up tour of 2009 was captured in concert and will air on Comedy Central in Fall, 2010 and their DVD “Broken Lizard Stands Up” will be released in the Fall as well. Broken Lizard is returning to their sketch comedy roots. Join all five members as they present stand-up and live sketches (including appearances by characters from Super Troopers and Beerfest).
