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.

I’ve been a pretty fortunate gringo as I am blessed with three families, one by blood and two by adoption of sorts.  After I moved to DC in the early 2000s not knowing a person in the world I quickly made two friends, one Colombian and the other Cuban; both obviously...

Ark: Survival Evolved – PS4

Ark: Survival Evolved finally hit PS4! There was great rejoicing. People lost hours, days weeks of their lives and dinos were tamed. I first heard of this game through a friend who was playing it on PC. He was regaling me with tales of dino taming. Crafting everything...
