When Beerfest came out in theaters, it was pretty tough to bring your own beer pong table inside with you. Stupid security guards. But now, that problem’s been solved: the quintessential drinking game flick is available on a conveniently portable “digital video disk,” which means you can bring it to the party instead of the other way around. To celebrate the release of Broken Lizard’s fourth film, two of the comedy troupe’s members—Jay Chandrasekhar and Erik Stolhanske—talked to us about their favorite drinking games, full-frontal male nudity and the rewards of making stoners laugh.
What’s your drinking game of choice?
Jay: I would say beer pong with paddles, but I also like the game Beirut, where you throw balls into cups. I am happy to do just a quick speed chug too.
Were there any games you wanted to include in Beerfest that didn’t make the cut?
Erik: There’s a great game that I always liked called the Beer Hunter. You take one beer, shake it up, mix it up with a bunch of different cans and then each person has to put one up to their head and open it, hoping that it won’t go off like Russian roulette.
Most actors have rough gigs early in their careers.
What does the person who has everything buy for themselves?
Sometimes the follow-up is worse than original headline-grabbing story.
Some people in entertainment don't even bother trying to come up with fresh ideas.
