  • Steve Lemme, the youngest member of the Broken Lizard sketch comedy revue and filmmaking team Broken Lizard, was born on November 13, 1973. Lemme attended Colgate University and became a member of the Beta Theta Phi fraternity, where he met Erik Stolhanske, Jay Chandrasekhar, Paul Soter, and Kevin Heffernan; the five formed a sketch comedy troupe called "Charred Goosebeak," and -- starting in 1991 -- performed off-off-Broadway, in Manhattan. They later changed their name to "Broken Lizard." Lemme's involvement with Broken Lizard extends to acting and co-writing the scripts, though not to producing, directing (à la Chandrasekhar), or editing (à la Heffernan). He plays Felix in Puddle Cruiser, Mac in Super Troopers, Juan in Club Dread, Jimmy in The Dukes of Hazzard (not an "official" Lizard vehicle, though it stars the whole revue alongside its main stars and has Chandrasekhar as director), and Steve "Fink" Finkelstein in Beerfest. In an interview, Lemme types his Finkelstein character as "geeky." As the character with the most scientific knowledge about the physics and chemistry of beer, he's instantly identifiable in the film: the Poindexterish, half-bald member of the group with horn-rimmed glasses. Lemme also "served as point man" on one of Broken Lizard's un-produced scripts. He described the premise to interviewer Daniel Robert Epstein as, "a fun thing that takes place in a restaurant. Essentially Mike Tyson owns a seafood restaurant and we are the waiters in the place."
