Broken Lizard return to Utah this January for festival season, and they are coming armed with their latest indie comedy The Slammin' Salmon. The film, directed by Kevin Heffernan, is the fifth and possibly funniest project to come from the comedy team responsible for Super Troopers and Beerfest. And it promises to be one of the highlights of this year's Slamdance festival. The plot follows Cleon Salmon, an ex-heavy weight boxing champ that initiates a contest in his own restaurant to see which of his waiters can earn the most tip money in a single night. The winner gets $10,000 and the loser gets a beating served by Cleon "Slammin'" Salmon himself. We recently caught up with two of the Broken Lizard gang, Paul Soter and Jay Chandrasekhar, to discuss their upcoming Slamdance visit and to learn more about the film itself.

The Slammin' Salmon will play Slamdance on Saturday, January 17th and Thursday, January 22nd. Check the official Slamdance website for times and theater listings.
The Slammin' Salmon was released December 11th, 2009 and stars Jeff Chase, Carla Gallo, Paul Soter, Michael Yurchak, Nat Faxon, Jolie Martin, Erik Stolhanske, Jay Chandrasekhar. The film is directed by Kevin Heffernan.
