Some may feel their humor is frat boy, wasted on alcohol good times style of comedy and that is no surprise considering that Jay Chandrasekhar assembled the troupe from members of the Beta Theta Pi Fraternity and in the beginning, the group did quite a bit of live stand up comedy until they began to focus more on films and television starting off with Comedy Central's "Is this On?" as the group wrote and were featured on the comedy short "Dante's Levels of Hell".
And after a few independent attempts at film, it was not until 2000 when the group worked on their first major film "Super Troopers" which was invited to Sundance and received a distribution deal at Fox Searchlight pictures and eventually became a cult-hit and cemented the comedy troupe's success as the group would then work on "Club Dread", "The Dukes of Hazard" and "Beerfest". The group recently finished their fifth feature "The Slammin' Salmon" which was directed by Kevin Hefferman.
The comedy troupe recorded their live comedy special on January 28th at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles and the following segments are included on "Broken Lizard Stands Up: Live, Extended and Uncensored".

Oh and bonus points for extras that were actually funny too.
chances are that you know their style of humor if you're going to buy this dvd. there are reasons why drinking, smoking, and sex are popular comedy topics. Broken Lizard surely embraces these topics, but there is more to their work than just cheap jokes. it's different to see them do stand up, enjoyable to see them individually. and it's very strong and funny when they share the stage in storytelling or sketches. makes me wish i could have seen a live show.
personally, while i laughed at their stage work, my favorite parts of this dvd are in the special features. seeing the mini-documentary of them on the road and backstage was a real treat. the chemistry and camaraderie is fun to watch. i hope they one day make a full-length documentary like this.
