“Broken Lizard” formed at Colgate University as a student sketch comedy group. After graduating, its members relocated to New York City to perform live shows. Their feature film careers began with their award-winning debut “Puddle Cruiser” in 1996.
They then appeared in the cult comedy hit “Super Troopers,” which premiered in 2001 at the Sundance Film Festival and was released worldwide in 2002, earning $20 million at the box office and selling more than five million copies on DVD. Their third movie, “Club Dread,” was released in 2004 and also became a cult favorite.
The group’s success continued with the 2005 movie remake of “The Dukes of Hazzard,” which was followed up by “Beerfest” in 2006. More recent work includes “The Slammin’ Salmon” in 2008 and “Freeloaders,” which is now in post production.
“Broken Lizard” members are all on national standup comedy tours this fall.
