In the second portion of episode 24 of Shock Waves, your hosts Rob Galluzzo, Elric Kane and Rebekah McKendry sit down with the one and only Lloyd Kaufman, president of Troma Entertainment, the longest standing truly independent film company. In this candid, yet fun chat, we get to learn a bit about Lloyd’s humble beginnings in the film business, how he met Troma’s Michael Herz, his early comedy successes with SQUEEZE PLAY and THE FIRST TURN-ON, hooking up with John Avildsen and helping on ROCKY, and much, much more.
We discuss the origins of THE TOXIC AVENGER, how he gave everyone from James Gunn to Eli Roth to Trey Parker & Matt Stone their starts in the film business, to the drastic changes of independent filmmaking and more over the course of this interview. Kick back, relax and listen to one of horrors most fascinating raconteurs tell it like it is! Embedded below for your convenience!
