Jay Chandrasekhar

Born April 9, 1968

Love Jay Chandrasekhar and all things Broken Lizard. Whether he is rolling with that crew, doing stand up, or producing movies on his own – Chandrasekhar always brings the funny.

Noteworthy

  • Super Troopers – director/actor – This was the first Broken Lizard movie that I watched. Also, the first movie that I saw Chandrasekhar act in. This is an annual watch for me.
  • The Dukes of Hazzard – director/actor – I know that a lot of critics did not like this movie but they are wrong. It is funny, it is inventive, and it is completely rewatchable.
  • Beerfest – director/actor – Same kind of style as Super Troopers and a lot of the same people make an appearance. I watch this movie for the last scene when they are chugging beer versus the Germans.
  • Psych – director – If you have ever listened to our podcast – Procrs10ation – then you know how much I love this show. I am going to have to go back and just watch the episodes that Chandrasekhar directed.
  • Community – director – Again, terrific show and I had no idea that Chandrasekhar directed some of the episodes. Gonna have to find them and stream them. Hulu here I come.
  • The Goldbergs – director – This is currently my favorite show on television. Knowing that Chandrasekhar had a hand in some of the episodes makes me happy.
  • Super Troopers 2 – director/actor – I am so thrilled to revisit this world. Many years later revisiting these characters is going to be perfect and I for one say: Take My Money.

Everybody wants to make more movies. You see any movie, and it’s just a feat of human strength and perseverance. It is a brutally challenging business.

Gene Wilder – You Will Be Missed

We lost a star in the comedy firmament on August 29, 2016. I thought about getting this article out the day e passed but I wanted to make sure I had time to think about what I wanted to write, how I wanted to pay tribute, so I waited. All of that being said, Gene...

Brian Quinn

Brian Quinn Born March 14, 1976   Brian Quinn, BQQuinn to some, will always be part of the trio that is Tell Em Steve Dave. This is where I got to know him first and this is where he will always belong in my head. From listening to that podcast I learned about...

Martin Lawrence

Martin Lawrence Born April 16, 1965   I first remember Martin Lawrence as a stand-up comedian. After that, he made the move to the small screen and then to movies. The whole time, Lawrence has kept his sense of humor, his sense of self and he has continued to turn out...
