Erik Stolhanske

Erik Stolhanske brings an element of wholesome comedy into the group dynamic, as one-fifth of the Broken Lizard comedy group. His special blend of parlor and Scandinavian humor adds a Midwestern peppering to the group's fragrant comedic mix.

Stolhanske has written, produced and starred in all of Broken Lizard's films, including the hit comedy Super Troopers, Club Dread and their first film, Puddle Cruiser, which shined at the Sundance Film Festival and then went on to be an official selection at the Berlin and London Film Festivals.

Additionally, Stolhanske was seen in the feature version of The Dukes of Hazzard, and on television, Stolhanske appeared in the HBO critically acclaimed series Curb Your Enthusiasm and Six Feet Under. He will next be seen in the upcoming Onion Movie, in which he plays a network news producer, and Paul Soter's directorial debut Watching The Detectives.

Stolhanske is known to have a sturdy constitution (Old Ironsides) and can best be described as the most poignant of the Lizards. He hopes that Broken Lizard's films receive critical acclaim in Sweden and Norway so that he can reconnect with his ancestral heritage.

Stolhanske and Broken Lizard are currently at work on another comedy called Nutcracker, the heroic story about a nasty, aging NFL linebacker who begrudgingly turns to ballet to get his edge back.
